YOU GUYS! Today is photoshoot day! ZOMG!

I am beyond excited, slightly nervous, and completely amazed that I get to actually post this. 

I have a book. 

My book will soon have a cover. 

Today is the day. 

As if having a finished manuscript wasn't awesome enough. Then I found someone who actually liked it and wanted to publish it. THEN I discovered I could have artistic freedom with the cover, and be totally involved in the process! 

YOU GUYS! Does it get any better??? 

The short answer? YES.
 It gets better. THIS is who is doing the photography for the cover:

My talented and selfless friend Tammy, from FACE ON BY TAMARA, has volunteered to do the photo shoot, and guess what? She's as excited as I am! 
She's amazing, and her work is ridiculous. I mean, she's so freaking good its crazy. 

Here are a few shots from a family photo shoot we did with her a few years ago. 
How rad is Tammy? Seriously! 

I still can't believe I even have a COVER to talk about - its so surreal. But I am so beyond happy, and so blessed, that I get to work with Tammy. She is going to make this cover AMAZEBALLS.
