Buzz Books is pleased to introduce the winner of our PROM DATES TO DIE FOR cover model contest, Morgan Gover, a 17 year-old junior from Altus High School. Morgan is also Miss Altus Teen and will be participating in the Miss Oklahoma Teen competition this summer, but we didn’t know that when she applied. We held an open casting call at BodyTrends BoutiQue in Casady Square in Oklahoma City and all contestants were photographed by Leigh Thompson so we could see the models in person and judge the photos fairly. It was a tough call with many great choices, but in the end, we felt Morgan would be the right choice for our paranormal prom cover. Stay tuned for pics from the amazing couture prom dress collection at Bodytrends and the final cover model shoot this weekend. Prom Dates to Die For is Young Adult paranormal prom anthology releasing in May.
In other news, a big thank you to Kansas Writers Association for having me speak at their conference two weeks ago on The Little Brand That Could, which will be a Buzz Books Biz title later this year. Photo by friend and great photog Ken Davis.
And in the news, this nice buzz about Buzz Books in the Edmond Sun. Gotta love local papers!
