Andi model pictures for upcoming books

Again, you faithful blog readers have an opportunity to see the "inside" story of what's going on behind the scenes. At the OKC convention, Jessica and I sneaked away for a few minutes and snapped some pictures. I know the white blouse has got to go (no white on the ranch when you're working!), but I'm sure Kregel can work their magic with that. But what about the poses? Is there one you especially like for the cover of book 2, which has no official title yet? Time to vote for your favorite! 

1. Which pose do you like best for a cover picture? (they are numbered for easy voting)
2. What color do you think Andi's shirt should be? Hint: I would like to see each cover of the new CCMilestones series a different color scheme. Thick as Thieves, as you saw in the last post, is kind of a sunset (orange/rust) color. What about the next book? Thanks for your help!

  1. So, so hard!! They're all beautiful! If I have to pick, I'd go with second or third

  2. Hard choice. I think I'll pick either 2 or 4. I kind of liked 4 because it was different. :)

    1. Will you be in NC this weekend for the NCHE convention? :-)

    2. No, but my brother will be there with Light of Faith. I wanted to go, but had other things going on. :(

    3. Oh, too bad. Yes, I know your brother is coming. I just saw a FB post that shows 6 miles of backed up traffic for him on the TN/NC border and I-40 is closed. What a terrible day for him! :-(

    4. Ugh! And they got a late start when they left Monday! No fun.

  3. I think number 4 looks the best, but they all look great! Maybe a bluish color for Andi's shirt.

  4. I like 3 and 4 the best:-) bright blue would be a nice color for the cover maybe.

  5. I like the first and second. Mostly because she has that far away look like her mind is wandering. I think it should be blue

    ReplyDelete
  6. I like the first and second because she has a faraway look in her eyes, but I think #1 is my favorite! I think a dark olive color for the next cover.

  7. I think I like the second one the best. :-)

    1. And maybe a blueish, violetish color.

  8. I like the 4th one best because of how it's different. The 3rd picture is almost exactly what the book cover looks like on Thick as Theives. I think a dark red would look good and also it would be okto wear that color on a ranch.

  9. I like #2 for the next cover. I think a bluish "theme" would be nice for the next cover too. Not sure what her shirt color should be, but a bluish book I think would be good.

  10. I like the first and fourth pictures best; however, "Andi" looks a lot older without her hat on... Unless there is supposed to be a big gap in time between the first and second Milestones books, I think the first 3 pictures would look more natural. And I agree blue would look nice.

  12. I like either number 2 or 3 and I think that her shirt should be blue (bright blue)

  13. 4 is my favorite, and 2 is my next favorite. I agree that I like 4 since it is different than the others. I like the idea of blue for the shirt. I think a lighter blue would be cool, maybe more of a sky blue.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I like 4 or 2 the best. I have to admit I like 4 better because its different, but I really like 4 or 2 best :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. I love 4 best! I think a dark green shirt on a dark/brick red cover would be cool.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I like Photos two and three. I think that a blue or red shirt would look good. I agree with Richelle that a dark red cover would look neat. Thanks for letting us get a look at the pictures!

  17. I don't know about the colors but I really like picture 2.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I think picture 4 is really good! I really like it :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. I like 4 best and then 1, and I think it should be a blue theme.

    ReplyDelete
  20. 4 is nice, because it isn't as close the the Thick as Thieves cover as the others are. Sunset orange would look beautiful.

  21. Blue or red or even a dark green for a shirt would look good to me

  22. I like number 4 alot. Blue or violet would look good.

  23. I like numbers 1 and 4 a lot! But I think they're all pretty good!:-)

    ReplyDelete
  24. I like 1 the best, though 4 runs a close second. I guess I like 1 better because she looks the same age as the other Milestones book, and 4 makes her look a bit older.

  25. I like 2, 3, and 4! I know that is almost all of them but they are all so good!

    ReplyDelete
  26. i think that 1 and 4 look good

    ReplyDelete
  27. I like #'s 2 & 3 best. And I agree with almost everyone else who thinks that a blue cover would be good...
    Are these all you took, or did you take some others that you are going to save for future covers?

    1. There are others, but they just don't "fit" with what I have in mind for the cover. One of the new pictures not included here I put on a quick slide show video that i hope to upload here next week sometimes just for fun. It's a GREAT picture, but just not "right" for this new cover idea.

  28. I like 1, 2 & 3. Color scheme: different shades of blue?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Hello. 3 and 4 is my guess

    1. Hi Frankie! Nice to see you! We met at the LEAH convention in NY!

  30. I like 1.2.3. the best!
    And Green or Blue would be a nice new something! :)

  31. Did you decide which on to use?!

    1. I sent them all to the marketing gal at my publisher's. When they create the cover then I will see which one they decided to use. I do get a chance to put in my two-cent's worth, and after all the feedback, I'm going to suggest #2 (or a "flipped" #2 if they want her looking the other way).

    2. not a bad idea i saw you guys at the okc home school convention

  32. hard choice i think 3 or 4 i think her shirt should be blue with green or purple with green.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I like 2 because she looks a little older and prettier and has a faraway look in her eyes. 3 is nice cause it looks more like Andi. It's a close call between those 2 pics. And blue is nice, though personally I think I'd prefer a sage green or something...

  34. I like numbers 1 and 3, and I think a pink, purple, or blue colored shirt would be nice. Love this blog!
