The Man Test Cover Shoot

"Give me lips. Give me sexy. Give me SCANDAL!" These were the directions given to the star during the photo shoot of my new book cover. Did I mention the star was a martini glass?

That's right The Man Test will be officially released on March 25th! The cover reveal is just around the corner so stay tuned.

If you're asking yourself why I bothered to get professional shots of a martini glass for my cover when there are so many stock photos with similar concepts, the answer is because it's ORIGINAL.

I worked with Jessica Rose Goldner-Bowman, an incredibly talented graphic artist, on this cover concept. Jessica is the designer of my branding, and I was thrilled when she agreed to design my cover. The concept not only had to work for this book, but it had to translate to my future book covers. After all, The Man Test is the first in a four part series. After brainstorming the perfect concept, we finally agreed to keep it simple, but make it fun.

You might think shooting pictures of a still martini glass would be a quick task, but the prep and shoot lasted over two hours! I love working with Jessica because she pays attention to every detail, and she's diligent about delivering a stellar product. We shot inside, outside, olives on the left, and olives on the right. The lipstick mark alone took a good twenty minutes to get it just right. I'll save the rest for the cover reveal in a few weeks.

 I want to say a big THANK YOU to Jessica. You are amazing to work with, and I'm so excited to share The Man Test cover with the world.

Don't forget to stay tuned for the final cover. I can't wait to hear your thoughts.
