Who? Yes, Me :-)

No, that is not the answer to the question of something done wrong...rather, something done FUN!

On June 22nd, I decided to open the doors to the Brownstone that makes me, well, ME, and let folks in to ask whatever was on their minds. It was a wonderful experience I hope to repeat. Nothing like sharing with readers and writers and friends alike.

AWESOME!!!

It was suggested to share the questions. Well, heck yeah! So for the weeks to come, I'll be sharing a question and my answer(s).

This question comes from Micheal DiGesu (who is just WONDERFUL!!!):
SO, Angela,

I love your covers ... Where did the cover art come from? Or, should I ask, WHO did the cover art?

My answer:

Michael Di Gesu, you were so kind to get the questions started so let me share that my covers have been done by the AWESOME Heather McCorkle of CP Design.
The cover art is stock from Thinkstock and Big (something or other. I can just hear the imaginations working with that Big) lol!
And she's wonderful to work with. She listens and offers things for you to consider but she doesn't force anything your way. She really wants the author to get their money's worth.

So that is the start to this series. More questions and answers to come :-)

Glad you love your cover art Angela. Atone is my favourite. I anticipate the next question in this series.

Angela Brown said...

Thanks, Sheena-kay. It's very important to find a cover artist that you click with. Heather has been great to work with.

Natalie Aguirre said...

Awesome that Heather did your covers. She's so talented and I love your covers too.

Here's a question if you need anymore. How do you juggle work, being a single mom, social media and writing and be so productive? I really admire how you handle it so well.

Angela Brown said...

Thanks, Natalie. Your question is the $64k question that is still a daily struggle to comprehend. I'm, often, not sure I handle it so well lol!!

mshatch said...

I beg to differ. I think you do a fabulous job.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

That's cool the same person did all of your covers.

shelly said...

You do have great covers.

Hugs and chocolate,
Shelly

Angela Brown said...

Hey Shelly! Thanks so much. Kudos to my great cover artist, Heather of CP Design :-)

J.L. Campbell said...

Yup, you do have some nice covers.

Angela Brown said...

I agree. It makes for easier work together with each cover as we get to know each other doing the covers :-)

Angela Brown said...

Thank you, Joy :-)

David P. King said...

Awesome. Been browsing a lot of stock photos lately. Trying to find the right images, and you have an eye for really great ones! :)

Angela Brown said...

Browsing stock photos can be a lot of work...but work worthwhile when you come across just the right photo that is the building block for your cover :-)

*blushing at the compliment* Thank you.

Gwen Gardner said...

That was a fun Q&A, Angela. You should do it again, 'cause inquiring minds want to know all about your lovely self :D

Angela Brown said...

Thanks, Gwen. It was definitely lots of fun. Will have to do it again :-)

Shelley Munro said...

I've always liked your covers :)

Jessie Harrell said...

Heather is such a sweetie and I especially love Neverlove. Thanks for sharing your Q&A responses.

Angela Brown said...

Thanks Shelley. You've got some great ones, though I'm partial to the one Maria Zannini designed for you :-)

Angela Brown said...

She is a sweetie! And thank you, Jessie :-)

Alleged Author said...

You really do have beautiful covers!

Angela Brown said...

Awww...thank you so much :-)

Kelley Lynn said...

Oh great to know! Thanks for sharing.

Jess said...

Yes! Awesome covers! And did I just read a great opening (boy stuck playing hem-model in a dress wanting to play b-ball) for a middle grade novel of yours? Loved it :)

Angela Brown said...

Glad to. More to come :-)

Angela Brown said...

Thanks so much Jess!!

raelynbarclay said...

I've probably been under a rock...I didn't realize Heather DID covers, let alone yours. Fabulous work. And I definitely agree having one person work on all of them lends a nice continuity. I'm looking forward to the Q&A series Angela.

Angela Brown said...

Oh yes, Heather is great. She's working on the cover for Neverlove's sequel which I'm very excited about :-)

Martina at Adventures in YA Publishing said...

The covers are just gorgeous, Angela. Heather does beautiful work and has a wonderful eye1

Angela Brown said...

Totally agree, Martina!

Heather said...

You're too sweet Angela! And of course you don't give yourself enough credit. Having a wonderful author to work with and bounce ideas back and forth with makes the process so much easier! :)

Angela Brown said...

*blush*
Thanks, Heather :-)

Kimberly said...

I love your covers too! And just came oover from the really cute first page crit from MaineWords. :)

Angela Brown said...
