I waited about a month more to be able to post this edition of Design Talk because I wanted it to go hand-in-hand with tomorrow’s big reveal. Yes! Tomorrow’s the cover reveal for my latest release, Waiting in the Wings, and it’s simple yet gorgeous cover was designed by fellow author and artist Miles Tan.
My first “encounter” with Miles was back in 2015, when I picked her book, Finding X, as one of the requisite three #romanceclass books I should read before entering Mina V. Esguerra’s #SparkNA workshop. I enjoyed it a lot I even recited nakakakilig passages of the book to my friends Chi, Kush, and Rix while reading it one afternoon in San Pablo City. Months later, I met Miles at The Study by Enderun, where we were treated to the very first live reading of some #romanceclass books, courtesy of the OG, Gio Gahol and Rachel Coates.
It wasn’t until much later that I learned that apart from being an author, Miles was also a graphics designer. And when author Ana Tejano revealed her cover for Keep the Faith last year, I knew I had to get a Miles Tan cover for myself someday. And I did. ^_^
But that is a post for tomorrow. Today (or tonight, more like), here’s my interview with Miles. <3
