Casting Call for My Next Book!

Aug 26, 2015

This is so exciting! Over the summer, while we were in Uganda on our mission trip with Beauty for Ashes, I met an amazing photographer named Jennifer Ilene (that’s one of her pics above). Well, I fell in love with her epic photos and she’s agreed to shoot the cover for my next time-slip romances, set to release in 2016! She’s going to shoot them north of Portland, OR and we’re on the hunt for the right cover model.

The right cover model will be:

1) Living in or near Portland, Oregon; (we’re going to shoot the photo 1.5 hours away at Fort Stevens Park, OR); if under the age of 21, must provide own transportation
2) Available Sept. 6, 7 or 8–we will shoot both covers in one day, but it might take two; also dependent on weather so flexibility would be helpful (please note your availability)
3) Of Spanish- or Mexican-American descent–or be able to pass for it, with long, very dark hair
4) Between the ages of 16 and 23 (ideally, passing for the age of 17-19)
5) Accepting of the per diem rate of $150 for a day and 1-2 cover shoots, plus 10 printed copies of the book WITH YOUR PICTURE ON THE FRONT and my autograph inside 🙂
6) Able to provide parental permission if under-18 prior to shoot (and provide parental/guardian escort if under 18).
7) Comfortable working with a wolf-dog.

And the model shall grant:

Full rights of her images to Jennifer Ilene, Inc., for full commercial use. (Primarily, but not limited to, Lisa T. Bergren’s covers for the life of the books and reprints from Jennifer Ilene.)
