And we've launched!

Cover Ready Art was born on the Kindle Boards, an amazing community of writers and readers of ebooks. I was whining (and I do like to whine) about how hard it was to find original stock art to use for the covers of indie published novels. Someone pointed out--hey--aren't you a photographer? And I realized, yes, yes I am!

The bluebonnets in the Hill Country here in Texas inspired me to put out a call for recent brides to get images in the flowers in exchange for a model release for me to photograph them doing not-so-bride-like things (you know, choking another bride with pearls, pulling a knife on the groom). I had four brides come for images and the first shoots were set!

When three friends decided to shoot together, I hired hunky mail model Gene Williams to come in and play the groom. We had entirely too much fun with the shoots! We can't wait to see the books and covers that come from these images.

And we're not stopping here. Our next mega-shoot will be for historicals. We're talking stylists, a major costume shop, and the most incredible setting you could imagine.

If you have an idea for a cover you would like us to consider on our next shoot, leave it in the comments and we'll add it to the shot list. Realize Deanna is getting married herself in just a few weeks (EEK--what am I doing HERE!) so our next major shoots will be in the fall. Texas will be TOO HOT for outdoor shoots until late September.

I'm so glad you stopped by!
