Urban Hunters Series Cover Artwork Commissioned

I'm very excited to say that I have just commissioned the artwork for my first book. I'd like to go into details about who he is, but I think I should keep that info under my hat until it's finished. I'll be posting the image as soon as I have it.

Finding the right artist was in itself a difficult journey. There are plenty of amazingly talented cover artists to choose from in America, but my book is based around the adventures of a 13 year old Aboriginal kid in Australia. So a definite Aboriginal flavour is needed for which none could do it better than an Aussie. The problem is, there aren't that many to choose from. There are plenty of incredibly talented Aussie artists, but who has cover art experience along with an Aboriginal artistic flair? Word of mouth within the industry was the key so after checking out some of his work, I made the call. He was very easy to talk to and knew exactly what I wanted. So we agreed on a price and it's happening... Best Blogger Tips
