Behind The Scenes Sneak Peeks

Don't forget - the BIG cover reveal is on Friday! 

Stay tuned to Novel Novice's blog andVania's blog this week - they are doing a big expose, showing different cover shots for Untraceable with the REAL ONE popping up on Friday. 

Here are a few more shots from behind the scenes:

Vania build a net of sticks.
It was a cool shot and I loved it but
looked too much like Forest of Hands and Teeth.

Model lying in vines. Grace would lie down and rest
so this ended up not working for the cover.

Jae charging across the bridge

Me, Jae, and Vania or Author, Model, Photographer

Do you guys have any questions for me or Vania on the shoot or cover? What is your favorite cover of all times?


Jamie Burch said...

So cool! Thank you for giving us a glimpse of the cover shoot. How many shots did Vania end up taking? How did you manage to choose?

Can't wait for the reveal!

DL Hammons said...

WOW...time is moving along so quickly! I can't wait!! :)

Jessie Harrell said...

so cool! I'd love to be "on set" for a cover shoot some day.

Vania took about 1000 shots over a 2 hour period.

I have always had a very specific picture - from a marketing perspective - in my head for my cover since I started the book several years ago.

So Vania jumped in from there and made it happen. She did a casting call and when I saw Jae's photo - it was Grace. Once Vania shot the pictures, we looked through the photos - she chose her top 3 and I chose mine - then we compared notes.

She and I both love love love the final :)

Wow, such a hard question!! Off the top of my head, with no pondering, I'd say Fablehaven or Maze Runner or Inkspell. :-)

Jemi Fraser said...

Can't wait to see the cover!

I agree Jae is perfect for Grace - terrific choice!

I don't know what my favourite cover would be. I have a special boxed edition of The Hobbit I would probably put in first place. Today :)

Ohhhh that's a hard one. I'd probably have to say, The Places You'll Go...I LOVE Theodore G.
