Cover Art – Phase 1

When I went to the writer’s conference last week (see last blog for blow-by-blow details) they strongly suggested having a book cover so the agents/publishers will have a visual to associate with the manuscript as well as an idea of where to place it on a shelf.

I am learning that it takes a village to try to publish and I’m fortunate to live in an amazing village. 

Jean Drayovitch, the nurse at RB Hunt (the school where I work) is a talented artist and offered to do Kobi’s cover art for me.

Isn't he gorgous?!

Isn’t he beautiful?

In addition to Kobi, I’m also working on the cover for Murder of Crows.  I took a really neat picture when Les and I went to Andersonville this summer.  The photo was taken at the reconstructed north gate of former Camp Sumter.  There just happened to be a ‘murder’ of crows hanging out. 

The more I learn, the more I realize what I don’t know!  Now to get them to look like book covers…back to the village!

About Heather Hamel

Growing up with horses is a little girls dream come true. Heather’s dream in life was to be a horse trainer - how dreams change - sort of! She moved to the wonderfully historic town of St. Augustine, Florida and was a historic tour guide and a ghost story teller while putting herself through college to become a special education teacher. After graduating, she felt the pull of horses in her life again. That's when she met Kobi! She learned quickly that when you own horses you become a part time vet, part time nutritionist, and full time equestrian. She wouldn't change a thing! In addition to being completely obsessed with her herd, she still teaches and tutors students with learning disabilities, and more specifically, dyslexia.
