Book Cover Trivia
So, two things happened when the cool people at Carina Press showed me the book cover for Craving Perfect:
1) I absolutely loved it.
2) I couldn't stop looking at the cover model. Because she looked very familiar.
About sixty seconds after receiving the book cover, I emailed it to my sister Mary like I do with most anything when it comes to my books. I wanted to get her take on the whole concept. I also wanted to see if it hit some of the same emotional buttons for her as it did for me.
The first thing Mary said about the cover was, "Is that Kathy?!"
Kathy is our sister. And the model on the cover looks freakishly like her. No kidding. It's kind of spooky. Someone (Probably someone who writes lots of paranormal) once said that everyone in the Universe has a twin somewhere. Like that Twilight Zone episode with a young Martin Milner who starts running after his twin who's in the other dimension outside the bus depot.
Well, I'm here to tell you that the model on Craving Perfect could be my sister's twin. And if her name happens to be Kathy, I would be seriously freaked out.
What are the chances of that?! Weird, huh? Maybe the model will friend me on Facebook like the model for Captive Spirit did. That would be totally cool.
I suppose if you have a twin in the Universe, seeing him or her on a book cover isn't so bad.
