'The Awakening in Moorland' ~ cover art and design for E.L. Mychols (@ElsieMychols)

My pricing structure is set up in such a manner, that I don't need to know character details to contract a project. I knew the MC was a young woman, a painter, and that the story takes place in England (in the Countryside) where she travels to paint a Moorland landscape for an older eccentric man.

Normally, I give the author 'homework', asking they send me character specifics, like hair and eye color/style, clothing style, personality quirks, etc. However, with this book, I got so distracted in research and development of the setting the MC was to paint, I forgot to request details about her. As a result, the first draft had a bald and naked woman in place of the woman you see now... lol. 

Needless to say, it's not that kind of story, so, I needed some details before I could finish. Lucky for me, Elsie was on point and ready to provide what I needed. :D

I discovered, in the process, that we both love the vintage look of the old Nancy Drew novels, so I tried to bring a little of that into my own look. What do you think?


To see a view of the moorlands once again is the last wish for the dying Uncle Maxwell. To feel something other than the day-to-day aimless illusion is the longing of the disenchanted artist Elizabeth Dupree.

After the two meet, they will soon discover an exchanging of gifts that will uncover and expose their own inner truth. A truth that awakens the whole family of the Moorland Castle.

Until next time ...
