I met Erica at BET, where she came to network. She was rather bold about it. She spoke to everyone on the set…including me. I kept her information just in case something came up. It did. Within 24 hours I got a call for a stock photo image of a couple kissing for a Zane book cover. I asked the art designer if I could show her something in a couple of days. I quickly put together a shoot with Erica and a male model, Robert. We shot for about 45 minutes and the art director chose the shot for the cover. I think this makes my 3rd Zane cover.
The image here was taken at Dave and Buster’s in Times Square where Erica met me to receive payment for the shoot, once it was confirmed that the shot was going to be licensed for the cover.
