When Completely Yours was finished, edited and proofread, the next step I had to consider was the cover. I had created covers before, using stock images from Adobe or other sites, but I had a really hard time trying to find the perfect image for this novel. One of the problems was that my characters are Black and there were shockingly few sexy images out there featuring Black characters.
So I decided to hire a photographer to do a photoshoot for the cover. I didn’t have a a huge budget, but luckily I was able to find a photographer (Leslie Pitt https://www.instagram.com/afrofilmviewer/) who was willing to give me a great price for the shoot. Of course, it’s still more expensive than buying a stock photo, but the result is a unique cover with a gorgeous picture.
