The launch of CAPTURED worldwide has been a success! Military spouses, Marines and adventure romance lovers from all over have been raving about the first book in the Orion Protection Series (OPS). I’ve enjoyed reading each and every word of the reviews.
Do you know the back story to the creation of CAPTURED? The men of OPS were written to be the heroes of your dreams. As I was completing the story, I decided to use a real-life active duty Marine as the cover model and a different Marine in my teasers for CAPTURED. I scoured through social media looking for the right men. However, finding the right model was just the beginning.
Without a photography background, creating my own cover seemed like a daunting task. But I was determined to give readers a dose of realism as they started their reading journey with Logan and Cadie.
I bought a camera and fitted a make-shift studio in my garage. After scheduling photo shoots with both models, I spent three hours taking photos of each Marine separately. I chose the perfect images and got to work with photoshop.
Luckily for me, my husband has an art background from many years ago. He brushed off the cobwebs and spent 4 days helping me create the artwork and cover of CAPTURED.
I couldn’t be happier with the final cover and teasers. I hope you’ve enjoyed the authenticity that I’ve given you through the creation of this book. Leave me a review on Amazon or another platform to let me know what you think of my debut novel. Your thoughtful words mean everything to this author!
