Taking the High Ground by Amy Alessio

I had actually forgotten to show this cover off when I had completed it, but it turns out, it had to be modified before going to press, so it worked out. :D

Prepping for the cover creation of Taking the High Ground, by Amy Alessio, I couldn't get one of my first experiences with book cover art out of my head ... The old Nancy Drew books. 

And no, I'm not that old! lol Someone had bought the entire series for me in hard cover when I was about seven or eight, I am assuming acquired at an estate or yard sale because they were old when I got them. That set now, on Amazon, is almost $200. I want it! But until then, I channeled my fond memories of the style and came up with a new look for my folio. Do you see it?

Intro from the book ...

The Beginning

Having a cop for an uncle was like having a Big Brother in the 1984 sense; he was always watching. Troy called the house this morning to ask Mom if I'd written everything down for the police report. I knew if I didn't get something down soon he'd come over here to "help." It was hard to know where to start. I never thought I would have to explain how I helped catch a murderer or how I almost got killed myself.

Be sure to visit the Publisher's website, too:

Onto wrapping up the next book cover :D

Until next time ...
