A huge congratulations to Kristen Verser… my cover designer for the Phantom Island series! Windfall (Phantom Island Book 2) was awarded second place in Book Cover Design in the Winter 2012 American Design Awards!

I can’t tell you how awesome it was to have a designer at my publisher who completely caught the vision and heart of my books – and was able to incorporate such symbolism from the story into these designs. Not only that, but she put up with a LOT of emails from me! 🙂 (Blog post coming soon about our design process – including the Covers That Might Have Been.)

So proud of Kristen – and so thankful for the pretty “faces” of my books.
