Designing the cover of Stella Torres’ Crushingly Close

Let’s interrupt another hiatus! This time, with a book tour 🙂 But this isn’t your ordinary book tour post, mind you. It’s so happened that I don’t just know the author, but I was the one who made the book cover as well! In this post, I’ll tell you as much as I can about my process, and how we eventually got to the cover you’re seeing now.

Cover Reveal: Chameleon (The Domino Project #1)

Let’s do something different on the blog! I know I haven’t been blogging much, but life happened. Writing happened. I’m currently editing my first novel. There isn’t much to say about it until it’s actually published — or represented, for that matter — so I’ll keep mum about it for now. But if you’ve been following me on Twitter, you’ll have an idea what it is I’m working on 🙂

Speaking of Twitter… One of the writerly folks I’ve met online is KT Hana, and she’s got a cover for her upcoming book for you to see! As a science fiction fan, I’m really looking forward to reading her story. Check it out, and join the raffle! 🙂

Hi there, stranger!

I'm Gail. I'm a Filipina author born and based in the Philippines. I'm also a web designer, an entrepreneur, and a graphic artist. I love pineapple pizza, seafood, and chocolate, but not in a single dish together (eww). My husband and I live in the outskirts of Manila with our dogs, ducks, turtles, cats, and one friendly but lonesome chicken. My Fate According to the Butterfly is my debut novel.
