Stories around my fantasy trilogy - Breaking the Tranquillity of Solitude.The Image of Pleasure and Pain…
I was on a mission. I had to get this picture into my book somehow.
Then by a combination of sheer luck, determination, and cheek I managed to get chatting online to a guy in America who turned out to be the boyfriend/partner of the very girl in the picture. Well after a very embarrassing “sorry to ask but…” type intro, it transpired that the picture was very popular and had been stolen, copied and plagiarised many times before and the guy was actually quite complementary about the fact that I had the courage and decency to actually ‘ask’, he very kindly said he would speak to his girlfriend and ask her if she minded the official usage.
Not long after the beautiful miss Sarah French contacted me and duly gave her consent and was interested to see how it would look in my cover. However she then informed me that the photographer would also have to give permission as he was the copyright holder.
I managed to contact him and thankfully he also agreed that usage was OK ! Wooooo Hooooo ! Here is the image, although this is not the best resolution copy it is I think you will agree pretty damn HOT ! You will have to wait to see how it cleans up and finally becomes part of my 2nd cover.
