Yesterday was a happy, very happy day in my life as I was notified by Trevillion Images about three new book covers, all very special to me.
I took this photo in my dining room back in 2014. It is virtually completely an "as found" image with hardly any arrangement of the objects. What did take some time to achieve was finding a good angle of shooting. The fact that a photo of a scene from my home has been bought for a book cover makes my feel overjoyed. Needless to say, I am so grateful to the art buyer for this Swedish book cover. The book, "There is Always Forgiveness" in translation , is a general fiction novel by an acclaimed Swedish author, and is the fourth book in a hit series. A separate license has been bought for an audio version of the book, too.
There could not have possibly been better news for me on the book cover sales front than my best selling image having sold in Croatia too! This image of mine was used for the original German edition of the "Die Betrogene" ("The Deceived") crime book, and they have stuck with the same image for a Croatian edition too. It is my first Croatian book cover and, being Croatian myself, one that naturally means very much to me. I am so proud to just look at this cover with its title written in my native language. I can't wait for a copy of this edition to adorn my book case.
