The Cover Photo Shoot

Post by Angela Raines

Recently two stories, one a Historical Western Romance, one a Medieval Romance, were issued by my publisher, Prairie Rose Publications. Since I enjoy photography and have a dear friend who is also photographer, I try to add my own touch to the covers. That I have actor/model friends also helps.

For fun, I thought I'd share the book covers and a couple of the shots that didn't make the cut. I thank PRP for the chance to share my stories and my friends for helping me make the story real.

This is the cover for the Medieval release.
Here are a couple of shots that didn't make the cut.

The second story "Never Had A Chance" was a combination of two different photo shoots.

This is the final version, but...
these two also were on the cover of  "Angel of Salvation Valley", and did such a great job

Here they are just having fun

I hope you enjoyed a look behind the scenes. Watch for more fun photos in the future.

An avid reader Doris loves to spend time in history archives looking for the small, unknown pieces of history. Many times these pieces end up in her stories or poems. 

Currently Doris is working in both the Medieval and Western Romance genre. Both have a wonderful history, much not commonly known which adds to the joy of telling these stories.

A photographer, Doris also writes haiku and combines them with her photography on her haiku blog: .
