Fantasy Art 2

I’ve been super focused on The Beautician and the Billionaire finale and remiss posting about the Through the Magic series. Sorry about that!

As mentioned in my first post about Fantasy Art, Kevin Yancey is doing the covers for the trilogy. I wanted something a little different than normal urban fantasy book covers because the stories are a little different than normal urban fantasy stories.

I love working with Kevin because he really listens and implements changes that I ask for. Below is a couple from an unpublished story. He got all the details right from the armor to the hair to the perfect expressions.


If you’ve bought The Beautician and the Billionaire Episode 7: The Mansion, be sure to check out the pages after the story. There’s a glimpse of the cover for the first in the Through the Magic series, Through the Painting.


Fantasy Art

I’ve mentioned that in May I’m switching genres a smidgen and publishing an Urban Fantasy Romance. Of course, my urban fantasy will be a little different because that’s the grown-ass way.

The difference starts with my cover. Urban fantasy books usually have photos:


Fantasy covers are often drawn:


The covers for the Through the Magic trilogy are all going to be drawn.

I love working with artists either photographers or painters or whatever. Masked Hearts and Thankful Hearts by Hang Le are my two favorite covers. But I always feel like fantasy stories require an intangible element that photos miss. Plus photos have the danger that another author has used them for a cover too. For the Through the Magic trilogy, I wanted covers unique to the characters and stories.

I immediately thought of Kevin Yancy who’s done some custom pictures for my Valentines I think three years now! He’s been working hard for a couple of months on the first cover Through the Painting. I thought I’d do a little exhibit of his previous works for me leading up to the cover reveal.

As you can see, he knows how to draw abs!


You can view more of his work at And next weekend I’ll post another picture he did for me.

The Beautician and the Billionaire Episode 4: The Past Scene 7b


Charisse tightened her hand in his as he walked toward a door to the side of a Monet painting. She’d spent much of her life in the elite society of New York, but his penthouse was unmatched. She adored it, at least what she’d seen of it. She found contemporary styles to be sterile, but the whole living room was somehow welcoming despite feeling like a museum. It had to be the beauty of the art. None of the pieces were ugly or tried to make a statement. All of them had warmth. Continue reading
