The Lives of Cover Models

I'm looking through stock art websites to find cover models for the Ondine books. I'm also having a mild panic attack that I won't have the cover done in time for the June release, so I'm procrastinating like anything.

I really love these two - they look so much like Ondine and Hamish, I have to use them.

No, she doesn't have an unfortunate birthmark on her face, that's the Dreamstime watermark, because I haven't paid for the pics yet. I'm not sure which one I'll go with, but when I make the decision, yes, I am going to pay for it. A whole $15 or so.

So I'm looking through so many pictures of this couple. They are delightful.

I call this one "The third wheel"

And now she and Hamish have a blog, which brings them joy. And a source of income.

But ... who is this IMPOSTOR with Ondine? She BELONGS with Hamish!

Hamish tries to win her back, but this isn't the way to do it!!!
