I am so excited to present to you the model who will be gracing the cover of DIE FOR ME: the face of Kate, Michelle Cartwright.
Back last summer, my editor, Tara, told me that she was going to send me some photos of models that they thought would be appropriate for my book cover. A few days later she sent me one photo, saying that HarperCollins’s art department liked her so much that they didn’t want to look any further. Tara asked me what I thought. I took one look and responded immediately: “Please tell whoever chose her that they were reading my mind. She’s perfect.”
Since the photo shoot, Michelle and I got in touch and I learned that she is eighteen, is from New York, and is with APM Model Management. Her star is quickly rising, and I’m glad we get to use her as book-cover-Kate before her face becomes instantly recognizable elsewhere.
You’ll be seeing Michelle again as soon as I do my cover reveal. (Tweaks are still happening at this point, so it won’t be right away.) And then, hopefully you’ll see her again the next time I go to New York — we plan to meet for tea and take an author-character photo just for fun!
Et voila, Michelle Cartwright, the face of Kate Beaumont Mercier, a.k.a. the heroine of DIE FOR ME.
