The Age of My Model is...

First, let me announce the winner. I entered each name into a hat and had the model herself choose. She pulled out: Emma Michaels! Congrats, Emma. Emma guessed the model's age to be 15. Was she correct?

Nope, but she was close.

The model is 17. How do I know this for certain? She's my daughter! She is now and was 17 when the photo was taken.

A little backstory: I have another daughter who is two years younger than Lindsay (the model), but everyone has always thought she was older than Lindsay. Lindsay has always been thought to be younger than her true age, so it was great for her ego to see all of the twenty-something guesses. I would REALLY like to know how old the person who wrote the review thinks she is. But, alas, I suppose that will forever remain a mystery.

Someone asked for a front shot of her face, so I've included it below. Thanks to everyone who made a guess. My daughters and I have had a lot of fun with this. Your book will be on its way soon, Emma.

How Old is my Cover Model???

On B&, someone left a review of Heart on a Chain. This is their review in it's entirety: "the person on the cover IS NOT 17." So, that inspired me to have a contest. I know the model personally; I know her exact age. What I want is to know how old you all think she is.  Everyone who leaves a comment is entered, whether you guess correctly or not. I will send the winner a copy of Heart on a Chain autographed by both myself and the model. How often do you get to have a book autographed by the cover model?

To enter, all you have to do is leave a comment at the end of this post with the following info:
1. The age you believe my cover model to be
2. Your email so I can let you know if you're the winner (I will never use anyones email for any other reason)

The only rule is this: If you know the model personally yourself, you are still welcome to enter with your guess, but please don't say anything along the lines of, "I know her so I happen to know she is...." so that you won't ruin the fun for everyone else. Thanks, and have fun!

Contest ends at midnight, February 27.

Here's the cover so you can be sure you're looking at the correct model:
