New Cover. The Vampire Diaries. The Return:Midnight

The last book of my first trilogy for The Vampire Diaries, The Return – by L.J. Smith. I shot for the incredible HarperCollins Publishers, who I LOVE, they are all such a great group of people! This cover was art directed by the incredible and warm-hearted David Caplan, graphic design by the lovely and talented Jennifer Heuer, hair and makeup extraordinaire Roshar, one of my favorite team members. First asst Derrick C.

The shoot was lovely, I adored our model!! She became the character Caroline in the novel. What an amazing day we had on set, it’s an incredible series to be a part of. Congrats to all the success of the books and tv show and everyone involved, esp the fabulous L.J. Smith.

The Vampire Diaries Hits Shelves

Here’s my first cover for the new Vampire Diaries trilogy by author L.J. Smith. The Vampire Diaries, The Return: Nightfall, is said to be a long overdue continuation to the original novels but well worth the wait. Already on the NY Times Bestsellers List, its no wonder that the rumors are flying that the WB will be making this series into a television show starting next fall. Those rumors have been confirmed  by Perez Hilton (so it must be true 😉 ) + the trailers have already started leaking all over the internet, the publishers have confirmed the rumors of the making of a pilot to air in September.

Book Two is already finalized and and waiting for release, and book three has already been shot and will be finalized soon. Book two has my fabulous friend Pi on the cover, you might recognize him from last years Gillette commercials. He is also in another fashion spread & cover I shot hitting news stands in Mexico this April. The third cover is a gorgeous model who is just as captivating in person as they are on film.
