I judge books by their cover. Whenever I am browsing through a bookstore, I pick up the ones with the catchy titles and awesome designs and pictures. Sometimes if I hear about a book through friends, I’ll read it regardless of the cover design. For example, I didn’t really like the covers for the Divergent series. However, the cover design for Matched by Ally Condie was stunning.

So this is why I am really excited to tell you all that I have found the photographer that will be designing the cover for my first novel.

Kayla Schaughency of KaylaSue Photography agreed to do my cover.

Here’s some examples of the work she does:

This will be the first time either of us have worked with book covers, so this’ll be exciting! I’m looking forward to working with her and seeing what awesome ideas she comes up with!
