Cover Reveal: Sacrifice of Mine

It’s time for the cover reveal of Sacrifice of Mine. This one is by far my favorite cover. There’s a lot of fun backstory to it. You see, I wanted a tarnished on the cover, but it’s impossible to find a stock photo of someone that’s tarnished. It just isn’t out there. That means for this cover, I got a personalized photo shoot done by the amazing Teresa Yeh. Her work is incredible and it was an honor to be able to work with her.

The first thing that we did was find a model. I looked through several models pictures, but the moment I saw Alessandra’s, I knew she would make the perfect model. Here’s a picture of her that really caught my attention:

It’s her eyes that really captured me. But if you’ll remember right, tarnished are bald. Look at the amount of gorgeous hair Alessandra has. So much! Not only would they have to use a bald wig on her, but it would take a lot of time, water, gel, and other such things to tame her hair down enough to get it to look good under her bald wig.

The process ended up taking four and a half hours to transform her from this girl with wonderful hair to a bald tarnished. You can follow the process here and here in time laps photograph. It’s really a neat process to watch. Plus, if you’ll notice, at one point she’s reading a book. That makes her extra cool in my mind. And the credits for the picture and time lapse are:

After all that hair and makeup I got to chose the end photograph to use for the cover. And here is that cover:
