Behind the Scenes and Free Books

If you've ever wondered how the Wild Rose Press artists create those gorgeous covers, there's a great interview here with the Cover Artists which explains their process. And there's a fascinating insight into what, exactly, Production does here. Well I found them interesting but then again I'm incurably nosy!!!

And if you'd like the chance to win free books, then you can't go past this great new blog of Jessica Brody's, Free Book Friday (how's that for a hooky title?!) Here's what Jessica says on the blog :

'Fridays just got even better! Because every Friday, we're giving away free books!Each week, we feature a new author with an exclusive author interview podcast and host a drawing to win free signed copies of his/her book.All you have to do to enter to win each week is sign up! Winners are chosen at random and posted on the site every Friday morning. Hence the name, "Free Book Friday!" '

I found the link about book covers really interesting. I've always wondered how it works!

Hi

Thanks Christina, for the useful book cover link. I always thought it happened magically, now I know there are actually PEOPLE responsible for the magic.

The cover process is always so interesting. There's so much that happens behind the scenes that we as readers/authors don't know about.

Have a wonderful week.

The cover artists at TWRP rock! The lovely Angela Anderson designed my cover for Seduced in Seoul. She did yours, too, didn't she, Christina? They're both awesome!

April, haha, yes! It is a kind of magic though, isn't it!

Shelley that's exactly what I thought - I had no idea of everything that went on beforehand.

Helen, yes Angela designed my cover. I think she is a cover goddess!!
