If you’ve been following the release of Go Home, Afton—just $3.99 on Amazon—you’ve, no doubt, seen silhouette imagery of Afton Morrison.
Those silhouettes are being used for a number of promotional purposes, including social media graphics and the background image on this website.
And, of course, all four covers:
In line with the description of Afton in the books—throughout which black attire and shadow imagery are ubiquitous—this silhouette of a young woman appears fit and lean, relatively short, and with dark shoulder-length hair.
Well, I’ve received a lot of kind feedback regarding the covers, and I thought some of you might like to meet the woman behind Afton Morrison’s silhouette.
No, I don’t know her personally, but it might interest you to know that these covers began as stock photos:
You can click on any image to enlarge it.
James, over at Go On Write, did a custom job for me here, creating the covers and more, using these stock photos as their basis.
This model appears in a whole slew of other images on Shutterstock, hundreds in all. Here are a few examples, in which you can actually see her face.
She, of course, bears very little resemblance (in good lighting) to how Afton is described in the books, but her silhouette? Spot on.
I kind of wish I knew who this was. Like, I’d love to be able to send her a tweet or an email, to tell her that her darkened figure is now associated with a homicidal children’s librarian. That’s the kind of news every normal person likes to receive, right?
Seriously, though, does anyone know who this is? Name? Twitter handle? Wouldn’t it be funny if her actual first name was Afton?
Anyway, if you have some idea how to reach this individual, shoot her the link to this blog post, or drop me a note in the comments below.
