Shooting Covers Pt. 2

Hello Lovelies:

As I update covers and marketing materials, I’m churning out some great pieces.

The next series features Mary L. Poll as Lavinia Davis from “A Long Reign”, my competitor in the Amazon UK Storytellers Competition in 2017. It was time for updates and SURPRISE, yes this is the start of a new series! The sequel may not happen until late 2020. But watch for more…

These pics were taken at the Campbell House Museum in St. Louis, MO. First preparation shots, including the madness that is costuming creation and the Campbell House housekeeper modeling my new crinoline:

Then off to the Garden of The Campbell House Museum:

And inside:

And at last, the new cover shot for “A Long Reign”!

And a quick selfie and casual shots afterwards to wrap up the day!


Part 3 of this blog coming shortly, featuring Pete Hutchinson….
