Love After Dark Cover Reveal
Gansett Island Fans will be excited to see the cover of Love After Dark, book 13 in the series, featuring Paul Martinez. We will be revealing the cover tonight as part of my Reader Weekend 2015 festivities in Newport, RI, and we wanted our online readers to see it at the same time the Reader Weekend attendees get to see it.
There’s a great story behind this cover…. My assistant Julie has two friends named Ashley and Courtney, who are identical twins and graphic designers. They do all images for me that you see in the banners on Facebook, ads and other items. In addition to being amazingly talented, our “Designing Women” are gorgeous! So when my husband Dan saw Ashley’s Christmas card, featuring a wedding photo of her and her very cute new husband Bryan, he thought it was a photo that came in a picture frame because they were so perfectly beautiful. When he told me that, I got the big idea to feature Ashley and Bryan Lopez, who is Puerto Rican, on the cover of Love After Dark, because Paul Martinez is also hispanic. It was a match made in cover heaven! My photographer friend Pam Sardinha and her husband/assistant David flew to Washington, D.C. for a weekend in February to do the photo shoot (and got stranded for an extra night due to one of the many snow storms last winter), and Ashley’s twin sister Courtney designed the cover itself after we had chosen the image we loved best. This was truly a “family” affair! Julie and I love that our amazing team of people is made up of some of her friends and some of mine (along with a few of my family members) who have all come together to make up the fantastic HTJB family. We’ll be posting photos of our team during Reader Weekend!
Next week we hope to have more info about the book itself, the release date and preorder links. Watch Facebook, the website and this blog for more info as it becomes available! And thank you Ashley and Bryan for being on the cover of Love After Dark!
