So while sometimes I wonder why my life's passion drives me crazy - there are some, hands down, fantastic moments when you are a writer. Some things are: the moment you finish the first rough draft - (I sometimes yell Hallelujah. What do you yell?), when someone tells you they were up all night reading your book, when you make your first sale, the release of your book. On Tuesday I got to do one of my favorite things - design the cover!
I feel super fortunate in this because the person who designs my cover is one of my former students - Kenzie Mencer of Kaboom photography. This young lady has had her own business since the beginning of her high school career. Can you say the same?
Anyway - Kenzie, Maggie, and I got together, took a drive into the woods, found a spot, stuck Maggie on wet trees, in trees, and in the sun. I'm lucky that Kenzie knows how a body will be captured on film. She also has no problem telling me "I'm being cliche." Maggie is so adaptable. She's very subtle about her facial expressions and can transform from: dejected, to angry, to sad in a blink of an eye.
Here's Maggie - she has a tendency to pose like it's her senior portraits. If you wanted to see Maggie's senior pics, check out Kenzie's website - the link is above.
This Kenzie accusing me of "stealing" her job as I document. Hey - I need to document.
I love this pose with Maggie - can you guess which twin she is?
I had a great time and wanted to share it with you! Do you have any cover stories you want to share? LMK.
