The Evolution of a Book Cover - part 4 - Inspiration strikes! #bookcover #romance

This little little mini series has been explaining what went on as I developed the cover for my latest book.

It had been released in a box set. The set has been unpublished, so I am free to re-publish the story.

To catch up see - part 1 -

part 2 -

part 3 - 

I sent the draft copy of the initials to my friends. One is the person who helps  me  create covers (Two O'clock with the Billionaire, Dark Chocolate and Strawberries, Brawnyn's Love, Love My Fate and Desires). She is my GIMP expert. GIMP is like PhotoShop - a photo manipulation program.

She - who I will call C - was ok with the cover but it didn't knock her socks off. Then inspiration hit her. She said she'd get back to me.

After searching around, C found a photo, then roughed out a cover idea for me.
What inspired her is an element from the story.

The box set, this story was in, was called LawBreakers. Somebody had to be a law breaker. What sexier job is there than jewel thief?
I purchased the photo so she could "do her thing" and on the 28th you will get to see the new cover for my latest romance. This one not designed by me, but by my friend C.
