Creating a Book Cover … by finding inspiration in unlikely places

I thought I’d share my inspiration for the cover of book two. First of all, I LOVE Candles. Always have, always will. A lot of times when a candle burns down to the end of the wick and there is still a lot of wax left, I’ll break up the left over wax and slowly feed it into a new candle. If you look at the photo below, it was a white candle that I fed it the remains of a brown candle. I think back when I came up with the idea of the candle on the book cover, I’d fed in some red wax to a white candle and it sort of looked like blood. And a book cover was born …
