Feeling chatty?

Welcome to my blog! Pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and read what's on my mind. I've a vicious sense of humor, an apprecation for romance and a mad addiction to writing.

Five Years Later. My Cover Artist ROCKS...then SHOCKS!

We’re into the first week of 2012 and I’ve so many things to be thankful for.

First and foremost, my amazing and beyond talented cover artist, Tamra Westberry. We’ve worked together now for five years and she still totally amazes me with her talent. More than that, she 'wows' me with her everyday attitude. No matter what's going on, she is a nice person! And it’s probably because of her attitude and willingness to work with authors, that I will always consider her not only a friend but my all-time favorite cover artist. Trust me, combine politeness, a good business mind and pure talent with simple kindness, you’ve got someone worth cherishing.

That said, I’ve big news.

And it all revolves around Tamra Westberry.

Did you hear the BIG news??? (It's not really Shocking as my title implied. Got your attention though, eh?) Tamra Westberry is up for Best Artist at Preditors & Editors in 2011! I’m not surprised in the least. She is unbelievably talented. Have a quick second?

Please vote for her HERE.

ALSO, I have a cover up for Best Ebook cover at Preditors & Editors. One, of course, created by Tamra Westberry herself!

I remember when I first told Tamra how I envisioned the cover for The King’s Druidess (The MacLomain Series- Prelude). How I almost saw her mouth drop open via email at what I wanted. See, I sent her some pictures to work with, others she’d have to implement. The most important picture was that of a girl (stripper) most definitely dancing around a pole and a man (most definitely from a naughty picture) and told her… this needs to look whimsical. As if both characters desire one another but can’t quite have each other. I need Ireland, ancient times… pagan times.

I think her jaw still dropped open based on the pictures I sent. *grins*

Two days later, the cover for The King’s Druidess showed up in my ‘In Box’.

WOW! Did she hit the nail on the head or what??? Using a tree from her backyard she got rid of the naughty pole. With a ghostly fog, the king became a man whom overlooked his love. Tamra did something truly AMAZING. So much so, that her cover for The King’s Druidess has been a best-seller at Amazon for over three months.

Really look at it. Pure talent. Love her!!!

I’ve never had a book cover in the running but this one is phenomenal and I’m so thrilled. It would mean the world to me if you could swing over and...

Thank you so much!
