Who designed your book covers?
The cover for “The Queen of Emerald Falls” was designed by Rachel Rossano (www.rachelrossano.com), who’s an author in her own right as well as a talented designer.
I initially worked with her to redesign the covers for another series of mine, the Jane Barnaby Adventures, and she did an amazing job, so I went to her again for this book.
I’m thrilled with her work, and what makes her really great to work with is, since she’s an author herself, she already knows what readers are looking for and how to create an original design that also fits what readers are looking for in each genre.
Another reason the covers are so good is that I didn’t really direct her, which is a lesson I learned with my very first book. I worked with a very talented artist who hand-painted the cover to my specifications, and it was beautiful…and totally not right for the genre or reader expectations. It was a hard lesson but a valuable one!
