Sexy! And I Know It!

This announcement is largely unrelated to anything DIY or house like. But it's still pretty awesome. As everyone knows I've grown up here in Colorado essentially my entire life, and I've met some really great people along the way. Just like anywhere else it's not always about what you know, but rather who you know. And I just so happen to know a really awesome author! Personally!

Her name is Patti Hill and she was my fifth grade Sunday School teacher. Patti and her husband own a gardening store called Bookcliff Gardens here in town. It's pretty awesome. Well Patti has written several books (you can find them all here on her website) and recently got the rights back for a few of them. A series  called "The Garden Gate" series. Now Patti wants to turn those into Ebooks to sell for Kindles and other ereaders online. The problem is that she has to supply covers for the ebooks herself.

Here's the original covers:

The character in the novels is actually about ten years older then I am (I'm 22. Yay.) But Patti asked me to be her model for the covers of her ebooks. Pretty sweet right? Sure they're not published but how many people can say they are on the cover of any books?? I'm pretty excited. I am also quite grateful that tall redheads are in short supply around here. I'll keep you posted on the progress!

Happy Wednesday! :)


  1. Ahh! That's so exciting! I was going to ask if you were going to be posing all seductive with some long haired man, but then I saw they are Christian fiction books, so probably not. Which is probably a good thing because that would probably be a super awkward photo shoot.

  2. cool! I gotta check out Patti Hill books. I am all grown up and still love Brio novels.

  3. Congratulations! I don't know you, Meaghan, but I love Patti's Garden Gate series, so I feel like I "know" Mibby. If you haven't read the series, I hope you will - you'll love the way Patti weaves her stories and involves you in her characters' lives.


I'd love to hear from you!
