I work with aspiring novelist, Rob Goble. When he found his book was going to be published, he knew exactly the image he wanted for the cover and who would model. Luckily, for me, he also knew exactly who he wanted to bring that image to life. ME!

Rob wanted an image with a young man reaching out to touch finger tips with a girl who lived next door, through the old window. And while the boy reached out, he also looked away, expressing a reservation with the bond. That vision, along with his daughter, a neighbor and my expertise, brought forth this image which has been mocked up for the book publishing of A Winter Morning's Sun.

A Winter Morning's Sun was just released and is now selling on Amazon.com. Yahoo. Although it's not quite what I shot (editors) I'm proud to have the cover and credit for it.

Not too shabby.

That's outstanding! Did you get a mention (credit) on the interior (bookside) of the jacket cover?

I was told I did. The book was just published. Other places will be carrying it, but don't carry it yet. In fact, Rob is still waiting to see the 1st hard copy.

Thanks. I found out that it also on Barnes and Noble for a bit less. I like their picture better, too.
