This summer I am so honored and excited to be part of the Entangled Inheritance series with some fabulous authors. Heather Chapman's book, A Provision for Love already released, and it is absolutely amazing. Sally Britton's book, His Unexpected Heiress, is launching in July, and Rebecca Connolly's book, The Rivals of Rosennor Hall, is coming in August. I'm having so much fun writing my story, An Unwelcome Suitor. It will be releasing in September.
Everything about this series has been amazing. The authors I get to work with are so kind, funny, and talented. One of the most fun parts of the process so far was the photoshoot for our book covers! It was important to us to have original, beautiful photos for our covers, so we got to work planning a photoshoot.
A few months ago, Heather recruited her amazing photographer friend, Amanda Conley to take the photos and design our covers. She did an amazing job. We got to work renting costumes, sewing costumes, and getting creative. Heather used her hidden milliner skills to make two awesome bonnets (read more about that on her website here). Amanda ordered some props--gloves, a fan, and the best of all, a parasol that was about six inches in diameter that was advertised to be much bigger. We all laughed over that one, and obviously couldn't use it in the photos. I wish we had snapped a pic of it though! I recruited some of my beautiful, helpful friends and cousins to be models, which makes these covers even more special. I never thought I would get to see my cousin on my book! I'll be revealing the cover for my book soon. It's perfect!
I cleared out my apartment so Amanda would have room to shoot, and the models showed up to get their hair styled.
Amanda was able to get lots of great shots with a variety of costumes and hairstyles for this series and for future books!
I even got to dress up like a regency character. It was more fun than I thought it would be :)
It was such a fun day, and thanks to Amanda, we now have four beautiful, unique covers for our series.
Have you seen the gorgeous cover of the first book in the series yet?
A Provision for Love, featuring one of my cousins. :)
Here's a first look at Sally Britton's cover for His Unexpected Heiress, which is available for preorder, releasing in July. This cover features my awesome friend and neighbor.
I can't wait to show you the other two covers. You are going to love them! There's nothing like a beautiful package for a beautiful story, and beautiful stories is what we authors strive to create. Right now, I'm going to get back to work on my writing for An Unwelcome Suitor. I'll share more about the plot and other teasers as the release date gets closer. I hope you'll follow this series throughout the summer and enjoy seeing our characters work through the hilarious chaos of their troublesome inheritances and find love along the way.
And be sure to keep an eye out for one character that makes an appearance in all four books!
