You Lost Him At Hello Book Cover

This is a recently completed project! So exciting! The book "You Lost Him At Hello" by Jess McCann is sure to be a FANTASTIC read! It comes out this September and is published by the same folks who brought us the "Chicken Soup For The Soul" dynasty. Yuppers. It's available for pre-order on Amazon! Cool!!

Do you love the cover art? I do! I'm being very immodest but I have to say that I think the cover came out great. (It's my first published "fashion illustration" anything. Believe me when I say I've trained for this my entire life! Along with children's art always being a huge aspiration of mine, fashion has been also been a huge creative inspiration and passion in my life. In my teens and early twenties, I used to eat Vogue for breakfast and design my own clothes... on paper, that is, and always worn by my fashion lady drawings.).

I am thrilled to be a small part of this project by doing the cover design and illo. Cool stuff!! Please do check it out on Amazon! Who among us can't use a little romantic advice every now and again? Hey I've been married almost 14 years and as much in a love bubble as me and my hubby still are, I'm still going to read it with much interest. I mean, how do you think all us happily marrieds keep those "romance embers" alive? Ha ha! All that aside, I do love a good self-help book! :) The truth is out!

Please note: this is the NEW cover. On Amazon, the previous cover design is still visible - but the book will have THIS cover! :) )
