Books in the series:
Ta Ta For Now!
When I released Ta Ta for Now! In June of 2011, I had no idea what I was doing. I used Createspace's Cover Design for that cover, as well as xoxoxo. For Ciao, I decided to do something different and had a photo shoot with my sister and brother in law. Now, over two years later, I'm excited to re-vamp the series leading up to the release of book 4, TTYL. I'm so grateful for Kelsey at K Keeton Design for doing a mass photo shoot for all four covers, and to Allie from B Design for the cover design. I love how fresh and fun she made them. I hope you love them too!
