Since it's the anniversary month of CT, I want to share one of the covers that have a very special place in my heart. R.E. Butler is one of the first group of authors that took a chance with me when I was starting out in 2013. I can still remember how clueless I was then. Everything was so new to me. Who would want to take a chance with a new designer, right? RE did and I'll never ever stop being grateful to her since the day I received her first email.
Purred Promises was the second shifter cover we worked on and I can still remember how much I struggled with it. I had an idea in my head but with the level of skills that I have during that time, it was beyond difficult.
Fast forward to now, RE decided to re-release it and turn it into a series. Words can't express how happy I was when she told me about it and that she wanted me to design the new cover too. I was thrilled that I had so many ideas for it! Cider Falls Shifters are different from the usual PNR covers that I design mainly because they are hybrid shifters so it was such a challenge. After discussing and designing the cover, we came up with something we're both proud of!
Seeing my old work makes me cringe but like what RE always tells me, it shows how far you've gone and I think that's definitely a great way to look at it.
I've grown a lot with RE and most of the time, my projects with her ends up surprising me too. We have this unique way of working together and understanding each other. She's one of the people who pushes me to my limits that I didn't even know I was capable of. I feel so blessed to have met her and to have such an amazing friend/sister from the other side of the world. Thank you for always trusting me, for giving me the chance, and for still working with me after all these years!
