Take a Tour Behind the Scenes of the Sing Sweet Nightingale Photo-shoot with me – Kit Nichole.

 

 

"How did you get approached to do this?"



My mom is actually friends with Danielle Ellison, the editor, and she asked if I would be willing to do it, and I said I would love to.  We’re also friends with Jeremy West who is the cover designer.

 

"What was the most exciting part of photo shoot? What was the hardest?"



The most exciting part was definitely getting to play with the masquerade masks! We all had different ones, and with our makeup and masks we looked really dramatic and it was so fun!  

 

The hardest part was probably trying to depict Mariella when I hadn’t actually read the book! Erica gave me a summary of her character though, so I think we did a pretty good job!

"How long did it take to get that shot that was used for the cover?"


 

Well we tried a few different set-ups, so that took a little while, but that specific picture was super easy! They told me to lie down and pretend to be asleep, so I did, and we were done in no time!  

"Do you feel an extra connection to the character since you portray her?”



Unfortunately my copy of the book hadn’t come in the mail yet, so I haven’t been able to read it! But anytime I read a book with a picture of the character on the cover, I constantly flip back to it to remember exactly what they’re supposed to look like, so I think it’ll be funny to flip back and see myself ;)

"Did they know exactly what they wanted for the cover or did you guys play around with it?"



We played around with it a lot! They had a few ideas and a bunch of different props, so I would just pick different things up, and they’d tell me what to do with them, we had a lot of fun with it!

 

 


 

"Who was there with you on set?"



With me personally, I only had my mom, but Jeremy, Jeff, and Lauren (the photographers) were there, a few members of the wonderful Spencer Hill Press staff, along with the other two girls (who were posing for the covers of the other books in the series) and we all had a lot of fun together. It was a great group!

 

"What are your favourite book covers?"



That’s a really tough one. I would definitely have to say the new Harry Potter covers (obviously ;), The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin, and Entwined by Heather Dixon!



"If you could be on the cover on any of book, which would you pick?"



I think I would have to say Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins or Die for Me by Amy Plum , if I’d get to go to Paris ;) Or maybe Burn for Burn by by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian because I heard the models had a lot of fun during that shoot!

 

"What did you find most rewarding about the whole thing?"



I think the most rewarding part was getting to watch Erica’s reactions as we portrayed her characters! She was so excited and it was so cute!! I loved getting to do that for her:)

 

"Can you tell us something we’d otherwise never know about the Sing cover?"



Originally the cover photo wasn’t supposed to wrap all the way around the book, but after taking a few shots in other styles, Jeremy brought in the couch, and it was so pretty we wanted to be able to see the whole thing, and Jeremy said he could do it, so he did!



Also, everyone knew I had blonde hair like Mariella, but it wasn’t until I walked through the door for the shoot that they also realized I had brown eyes like her too! And I’ve never read a book about a girl with blonde hair and brown eyes before, so that was really exciting :)

***

 

Well I definitely learned a few things from reading this! Thank you for the insight Kit, it really looks like you had fun. It was great to have you on the blog.
