This blog is about my whatever which is completely different from your whatever. My whatever will be about writing, poetry, my dogs, what I find funny, food I hate, family, and basically any thing I want. Whatever.
Tirzah, how can I thank you enough? No. 2 is the most hauntingly beautiful of these five images and would reveal the essence of my historical YA, The Underground Gift.My book's antagonist, Benjamin Michaelson, wants to destroy his newly acquired slave, Josepha, because he cannot abide a beautiful or mixed slave. Michaelson has some real issues in addition to being a sadistic slave catcher.The reason this image is so perfect is it shows pain yet strength--a spirit that no hate-distorted individual can crush. Thank you again, Tirzah; I'll be sure to give you prominent credit for discovering my book's new look.
I'm glad it works for you. If you want I can make the scar more real Right now it's a little too much.I had some others but I fell asleep last night before I could post them.:)Tirz
Oh, yes, she's striking and conveys that essence of someone who has experienced tragedy.
These were all rejected mock-ups---they just didnt' quite work. I like her face. Which is why I used her for the mail letter cover as well.She's got such a great face and skin tone---the model looks great on a cover. And she's not smiling--or making mean faces.It is so hard to find this balance of sad and strong. I downloaded all of her free photos even though her outfit is ridiculous.:)Tirz
Very nice covers like the second the best.
Tirz, You work is true art and I love it, so that's why I gave you an award on my blog today. I'm also sending people to visit you because you ROCK!!!
That's so nice of you!!! These are the throwaways but if people can use them--i'm happy they aren't sitting in nowhere ville.:)Tirz
Hi Tirzah,I really like these photos - and before I read the other comments - my reaction was the same - I like the second photo best.
