The Bayshire: The Story Behind the Cover

Hey readers!

Welcome to the world of the Teen Spy Organization! The second book in the series, The Bayshire, was just released on June 8th! You can purchase it as an ebook or a paperback on Amazon! The ebook is also available at Barnes and Noble, Baker and Taylor, Scribd, and more!

Today I want to talk about the cover for the book.

I designed the cover myself in my front yard and on my computer. Designing the cover was a lot of fun!

For those who haven’t read The Bayshire yet, the image depicts a scene in the story. I chose a scene that I think shows the character’s arch and development in a really fun way. On the cover you see Agent Alexis Mills. My sister modeled for me in the front yard where I taped a sheet to the garage as a makeshift green screen, and the magnificence of modern technology allowed me to tweak the photo.

Using an awesome platform called, I was able to design the cover. It took a while to make it look the way it does, but it was a very fun process!

A lot of people hire cover designers to create wonderful pieces of art. I had the privilege to learn how to design not only one, but two covers for my stories so far. I hope ya’ll enjoy the story and the cover as much as I enjoyed creating it.

Happy reading!
