One of the most exciting parts of the publishing journey is seeing your cover and it says everything you want it to about your story. You visualize it on the shelf next to all the other books, or on lists online. There's a huge squeal of excitement when you know the cover embodies what the book is all about.
One of the coolest parts about the cover for Rainbows and Raindrops is that it has our leading lady on it. When our friend Rachel offered to do a photo shoot for us we gave her a rather vague description (brown hair died different colors, brown eyes, carefree spirit). I think Jen and I cried when she sent us the pictures.
Rachel had found our Rain.
And now we get to learn a little bit about her.
How do you know Rachel (the photographer who took your picture)?
I met her when I first started speech, she is my speech coach.
How did you feel when she asked you about the photo shoot?
I felt absolutely excited and honored to model for such a wonderful book
What do you feel about the final cover?
I love it! It was most certainly well made.
Are you a reader? Writer? Movie fanatic? What do you do in your free time?
I do enjoy reading. I also do a bit of writing, but nothing official. On my free time I am usually writing, hanging with friends, take photos, and drawing.
Where do you see yourself in ten years?
Honestly, I have not thought that far. Hopefully I will have a job that I love and still have the time and energy to write and do photography.
Thanks so much for being our Rain, Lauren! You're perfect.
