The wait is nearly over!
The pictures are in from the Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter photo shoot and they are killer! I can't stop staring at them, and why should I be the only one?
Thank you to photographer Teresa Yeh for putting together the casting call, wardrobe, makeup, hair, and shoot! And to Gabriella (aka: Aurora Sky) and Alyssa Dearest (aka: Valerie Ward) for bringing the characters to life.
Claudia at Phatpuppy Art has already created the mockup for book one and it is so unbelievably cool. I'm buzzing with excitement! If you haven't signed up for the cover reveal already, see the bottom of this post for more info.
Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter (Aurora Sky Book One)
When you read or write, a certain image of a character appears in your mind as you go along with them on their journey.
One of the things that made me most anxious about the casting call was finding an Aurora who not only fit her physical appearance, but conveyed her dark, rebellious, sometimes naïve and numb, yet brave personality.
I don't think there's a woman who could have pulled Aurora off better than Gabriella and I'm so grateful to Teresa for finding her.
Northern Bites (Aurora Sky Book Two)
With Gabriella and Alyssa Dearest
It's almost scary how well Alyssa and Gabriella pull of Valerie and Aurora. The expressions and attitude are dead on. It's like they've stepped out of the pages to go after unruly blood suckers.
Bad Blood (Aurora Sky Book Three)
I just saw these gorgeous pics last night. All I'm saying for now is it involves a red dress and that the finished cover will be ready at the end of October. And by then I'll have a better ETA for those of you waiting so patiently for the third book. Right now it's looking like Aurora will have a five book run with at least one novella and short story in the mix. ;)
