I have a talented sister-in-law…

My sister-in-law, Rebecca Avery Petersen, spent countless hours making me these special cookies for THE SHADOWS BEHIND release party.

My sister-in-law, Rebecca Avery-Petersen, loves to bake, and is really good at at it (much like my late mom). One day a few weeks ago, she messaged me and said she’d been playing around with doing something out of her comfort zone with her sugar cookies: my book cover.

If you’ve seen the book cover for The Shadows Behind, you know this is not a small undertaking. I really loved them, and she then volunteered to send me a few dozen for my release event this weekend.

I had to share, because she’s amazing. That’s a pretty cool person who just volunteers to take on that kind of thing out of pure love and passion. And suffice it to say the only thing I can bake is the stuff that comes out of those round tubes!

  1. WOW, look at those cookies! Your sis-in-law did an awesome job!

    • Right? And this was her final design, which I liked the best. She tried the entire book cover with the figure on it and everything, too, but THAT looked like HELLA time consuming, so I guess that’s why she didn’t go with that one. I like the shadow hand better!!
