Help me find the girl on my cover!

The God of Sno Cone Blue with BRAG Medallion.

In all likelihood, she’s years older and has no idea she’s there. How cool would it be to find her on social media? Please share this–or if you recognize her, let her know I’d like to connect. I’d love to send copies of the novel to her, and if she’s willing, post an interview. Wouldn’t you like to know if you were on a book cover?

She modeled for the photograph and I bought the rights to use it, but it’s doubtful she knows it ended up representing the main character on a book cover–with one of her eyes changed to blue!

 

Who is she?

It’s been a year since the novel was published and many people have asked that question, so I thought it’d be fun to try to find her based on the photo, (especially since I don’t know her name!) She’s on the cover of the novel, The God of Sno Cone Blue should be on her bookshelf.

Besides sending her complimentary signed copies of the book, I’d love to request an interview (keeping her privacy and safety in mind). Who is the real person behind the representation of my main character, Grace? Is she a reader? Where is she now? How much older is she? Did she have any idea she was on a book cover?

An update on the novel

The God of Sno Cone Blue continues to be well received: 64 reviews so far on Amazon for a rating of 4.8 out of 5 stars–yay! And I’m still making author visits to book clubs, 30 so far and counting. (Leave a message on my Contact Page if you’d like to schedule a book club visit or Skype session.) However, because I’m self published and the sole marketer, a limited number of people know about the book. And, while it’s available on Amazon worldwide, the majority of its readers are in the Pacific Northwest. So, sharing this post not only helps find the girl on the cover, it will also help Sno Cone Blue find a broader audience.

Speaking of signed copies

Based on requests from readers (particularly for Mother’s Day), I’m also offering signed copies of the novel (along with a matching bookmark). If you’d like one (or more) please share this post and send a check to the address below, made out to yours truly in the amount of $12 per copy (US only). Provided you live in the United States, I will cover the cost to mail the book (signed to whomever you’d like) to your address. If you are outside of the United States, drop me a note on my Contact Page first and I’ll check the additional mailing cost and get back to you.

Thank you

With any luck this post will go viral and we’ll find “Grace.” In the meantime, thank you so much for supporting this effort! It will be interesting to see if we’re successful and how long it might take.

  1. Hi Marcia,
    I met and purchased your book at the Cedar Mill Farmers Market this spring. At the time you mentioned you do author visits to book clubs. It is my turn to host next and wondered if the offer still holds? I am looking at sometime in early November. I live in the Bethany area.
    Let me know so I can plan accordingly. since I get to choose, we are reading your book either way. Actually, I’m almost done and enjoying it.

    Thanks for considering joining us,
    Tammy taylor
