Yay.. I am simply thrilled to share more of my work with Booklovers everywhere.   Just the thought that people are holding something that I have drawn feels so.... I-Don't-Know-How-to-Explain.
I wish Kevin the very best and  I hope everyone reads his books.

 He even wrote in a namesake character for me in "1745" 
  She is a feisty teenager and possiblely her name is  "Gwenny Buck", not final on that yet. 
That is so Fun...    Thank you, Kevin!

Click on his name at the beginning of this post to see the rest of his book series with my watercolors on them.... 16 Covers in all in the series

Look at you go!

This is great!

Wahoo Congratulations so exciting. AND a character for you too? A feisty teenager, hmmmm I can see you as such. Must read.

Guillaume said...

Congratulations! And it is difficult not to judge a book by its cover when they are as beautiful and aesthetic as here. If I ever write a novel, I want you to draw the cover.

Hey Cover Girl! Congrats! Awesome for you to have your wonderful artwork shown on book covers! We all know how talented you are ... and love that many book-buyers out there will get to experience it too!

Way to go my dear!

Hugs ... Marie

Fabulous! Mr. Grote made an inspired decision to use your wonderful watercolours to grace his book covers and set the mood for his stories. They would definitely make me want to pick up the book and investigate further.

And scrolling down your blog seeing your earrings with your sketches sure makes me smile this morning!
Hope you are having a lovely summer!

FANTASTIC, Gwen! The covers are fabulous... they have a larger-than-life feel to them... LOVE the dragonfly, I suppose as it's a special symbol of mine. Wonderful details. Congrats! Happy Summer Days ((HUGS))

Super cover art that matches the books. I am a writer with two books published and know that the covers are KEY to gaining attention and getting people to pick up the book.
