Happy VD! Wait… that didn’t come out quite right…
Valentine’s Day is the day my new book, FINDING FRASER opens. It is Emma Sheridan’s birthday, and as is the way of these things sometimes, turns out to be a Very Bad Day for our heroine.
Emma and her story will be coming to you soon, but to celebrate her birthday, I thought I’d give you a sneak peek at the cover shoot for FINDING FRASER we had last week.
The photographer you see here taking the shots is Martin Chung of Studio Impossible, and he did a fantastic job of getting our cover model to show his best side.
[Please note that none of the shots in this post are Martin’s. I was running around with my iPhone, getting in the way and having fun. I as do.]
The cover model himself is Rob MacDonald, of West Coast kilts, and with both the Highlands and warrior blood running through his veins, he was the ideal choice.
More on Rob later, but let it be known now that he BROUGHT IT to the shoot, including a kilt that he whipped up for the occasion in Fraser Lovat plaid.
Rob makes kilts in the same East Van house his grandfather did, and his workspace is a marvel.
My contribution to the shoot was a real claymore, made in Scotland to precise historic specs. [I have to say, there are no swords in FINDING FRASER, but I couldn’t resist the opportunity, especially with a willing model in a bespoke kilt!]
The shoot was fantastic fun, and I can’t wait to show you the cover when it’s ready.
But for now, I want to offer my deepest thanks to photographer Martin Chung, model and kilt-maker extraordinaire Rob MacDonald and writer and nervous-author wrangler Kathy Kenzie for making this cover shoot an event to remember.
Stay tuned for a new Indie Tuesday post, this week from author James McCann. And, as always,
