I have an illustrator!

I've been lurking on your blogs this week, but sadly had little time to stay long. I'm neck-deep in revisions on DOGSLED DREAMS with my marvelous editor. Just a quick announcement today that I have an illustrator for my book - Willow Raven
Here is one of her fantastic book covers recently released by my publisher 4RV.

I am so thrilled - I think this is an awesome book cover! I'm also strangely nervous now. I can't wait to see what she'll create.
I'll be announcing the winner of my mega-book giveaway contest on January 31 and the working title of my latest WIP. A few more days to enter.

I like that cover. Congratulations. I can understand your nervousness. Seems like being that much closer would make everything that much more real. Good luck!

Congratulations on your illustrator. It must be exciting, in a sense giving a face to your book, definitely making it real! Do you have any input into the cover art?

And a good illustrator she is. You might want to send her some photos of her dogs.

Aidana WillowRaven said...

Lol. Yes send me photos ... lots of photos ... lol.

I can't wait to get started on the cover design. I just need to re-read the MS again, to be sure I am not missing anything, some little detail.
