 About the Author

I am a mother to three beautiful children, they keep me busy.  I live in a small town that’s filled with monsters and really nice people alike.  I love taking walks around the mountain trails where I live and I love taking trips to the Ocean, especially the South Carolina beaches.  The ocean brings me tranquility and refreshes me, but I don’t get to go there often enough.  Some mornings I listen to nothing but sad country songs for hours but when I write, I usually buckle down with my headphones and listen to something raw and angry like Seether, and Stone Sour.  I can be shy around people but I’m mostly always honest within myself.  In many ways, on many levels, I express different parts of myself through my characters.  Someone told me once that you are only as old as you feel  and I love that!  In fact, I love that idea because personally, have no intentions of ever growing up!  I want to be 18 forever no matter what they do to me.  LOL!


 My Thoughts

Ok, so right off the bat, I'm going to warn you: I don't personally care for this cover.  I enjoy putting my thoughts out there about things like this, and I do have something to say, it just isn't necessarily positive.  I'm not going to be mean, at all, just honest.

Personally, I don't care for covers that look the way this one does.  In general, the idea is epic, and if done properly, it would be a fantastic cover.  

The part I don't like, is the fact it looks so...fake.  Not in a "that would never actually happen" way, but in a not-put-together-well kind of way.  It looks amateur, and very much reminds me of an early play station game, where the graphics nearly hurt your eyes.  At the time, it was state-of-the-art.  Now though, since we have such well-done graphics and professional covers everywhere, it's easy to tell something that is cheap or not done very well.  This cover is very much like that, and being a new cover, is kind of...sad.

I'm not at all saying my graphics are better, or I am any better.  However, if I were to choose/make a cover for a book I'm asking people to pay for, I would have a better well-done, professional looking cover.  

If done well, this particular cover would be awesome.  At the moment though, I don't care for it.
