Post by Globalmyths » Sun Jun 29, 2014 3:05 am

My daughter has just sold a ready made book cover to Clifford Irvine famous author for one of his books he is writing.
she has sold a few other covers but the first to a famous author.


An example of her art is the picture in my avatar thingy of a young girl taking a tiger for a walk.

If you Google. Michelle Douglas Fantasy Art pre-made book covers you can see the book cover that Clifford Irving bought.

Google him. The way I read among the things he has written was the autobiography of Howard Hughes that turned out to be a hoax

I had heard the name, have not read any of his work.

What I have found really interesting since viewing Michelle's work has been the concept that authors buy a cover. I suppose I had imagined the publishing house would organise all that sort of thing, but I suppose these days, with kindle and being able to upload your own writing, it makes sense that there is a market for ready made covers!

A publishing house has examples of Michelle's work which they show to authors if they like it they pay for it the house takes a commission and Pay Pal deposits $50 in her account.

Fame she may gain, but she isn't going to make a fortune at those rates. I get paid more than that when someone
uses one of my photos. Give me the money over fame anytime. :wink:

I don't know how many she has sold or for how long but on Google it seems a fair while
and a fair amount. I only found out last week what she was doing. Shush don't tell daddy.

From what I can make out there are different artists on the site selling there work. I don't know her
name so I can't check which are hers.

If you click on the link beneath each cover, it says something like 'search this artist's covers' and when you do that, the exact same covers come up, so I am guessing that is a link to her work as there is only one page of covers there.

I couldn't swear to it, but I would be pretty sure they are all hers in that link. I copied it from her facebook site (Michelle Douglas Fantasy Art Pre-Made Book Covers).

I don't think she would mind me saying her listed business name is Michelle Douglas Fantasy Art because she once asked me to share her links if I could.
