This week we take a look at Valerie Tibbs. I asked her some quirky questions back in January and got plenty of interesting answers!
Valerie Tibbs is a cover artist for the following publisher(s): Aspen Mountain, Freya’s Bower/Wild Child Publishing, Pink Petal Books, Zumaya Publications. She’s also done some freelance covers for a couple of authors who had some free reads and wanted to use a professional type cover.
Valerie’s favorite color is purple and her favorite ice cream flavor is chocolate. When asked if she’s a cat, dog or both kind of person and if she’d ever own(ed) a snake or some other exotic pet her answers were ~ “Mostly cats, (I have two) but I could be both. I love animals. & No.” Concerning her preference for warm weather or cold she states, “For every day life, I’d prefer the cold. If I was going on a vacation somewhere, I’d like it warm so I could go swimming or snorkeling.” As for where she’d live if she could live anywhere in the universe, “It wouldn’t really matter to me, but if I had the money, I’d just travel all the time. I’d love to go to Australia and New Zealand.” In regard to what time of day she prefers, Valerie says, “Morning person, for sure. Much to the dismay of my 16 year old son.” Her favorite day of the week is Friday and her favorite number is 3. When asked if athletic shoes are sneakers or tennies and if a soft drink is called soda or pop, she responded: Sneakers & Soda
Here’s a scenario posed to the author: “You’re at a conference and an agent comes up to you and says, “I’ve seen your name on the web. I’m interested in taking you on as a client. You have a couple of minutes to wow me to convince me that I should.” You can only plug one book in this short amount of time. What book would you plug to land this contract and why?”
Valerie’s response: This book part doesn’t apply to me, but if someone from a major publisher wanted to hire me on as a cover artist, I would jump at the chance.
