With the release date only days away I thought I'd share not only the official cover, but also some of the ideas that popped up for the cover.
The original picture was black and white, but there was a haunting quality to her face and the way she was reaching out. I considered using the original as is, but I thought it was too plain and didn't have any life to it.
Here is the original picture:
Once I decided on the picture, I went through a number of color schemes. I originally wanted a red, simply because I loved how the background popped. But with Lil's red hair, she became lost in the picture. Purple gave her a washed out look and the muted red seemed too boring, especially after how good the bright red background looked.
Here are the first ideas for the cover:
Her sisters think Lily has the easy gift. Who wouldn't love to heal people with a simple touch? But all of that pain and suffering has to go somewhere and Lil's the one taking it all in.
Then someone close to her dies and suddenly Lily's life spins out of control. She clings to her best friend Micah, trying to feel something. Then she finds herself falling for him and she realizes that while healing others is easy, healing herself is much harder.
