So I’m in the middle of revising the next book in my Silver Foxes series: Celebrity Dish. It features pop singer, Jessica! I’ve started drawing again and so I came up with this:
(The blue of her tail feathers are a bit off, so I’ll have to adjust the colors)
Jessica is a bird of indeterminate species. She loves to take inspiration from all bird species and put them into her in-public costumes. This particular costume is her new look that will be unveiled in the book. It’s based off of the peacock, the male Spatuletail hummingbird, and the female Raggiana Bird of Paradise. Here are some links to pics of each of those birds.

I love the pic, and I think it will make a perfect book cover. In the past, I’ve had Tazia Hall help me, but I’ll be tackling this one myself—with my own art. Sort of a leap for me. I want to make this cover look like it’s the cover of a magazine.
One problem: I’m not so good with my photo editing software. I’m passable, but . . .
My vision for Jessica is to have her outfit all sparkly. I’m not sure how I’m going to accomplish that.
But that’s a post for another day.
Book 6 will be coming soon. Stay tuned!
