Unofficial Girl, the cover...
I've rethought the cover for Unofficial Girl, dragooning the offspring into posing for me. She's a few years younger than Beth, my heroine, a little thinner, and has the WRONG HAIR. Beth's is long, curly and red/gold. As you can see from Remix's cover, the daughter's is long, blonde, straight as rain, and wants to stay that way.
So I spent an hour with curling tongs, hair grips and a lot of extra-strength hair lacquer, and you can see the results in the new cover. I changed the colour on Adobe Photoshop.
All my future heroines will have whatever hairstyle my daughter has at the time, I've decided.
