Rich’s Floating Girl Cover Direction for SAVE ME

Our cover designers have created some amazing cover directions for SAVE ME by Jenny Elliott, and we’re counting on you to choose which one actually goes on the book! We know it’s a big decision so today we’ve asked our Art Director Rich D. to share the story behind this gorgeous cover approach:

Save Me Floating

As a cover designer, my main focus is to capture the feel and emotion of the story. I usually have more success going with a abstract visual or concept rather  than a literal interpretation of a scene from the book.  Blending different elements from the story allows me to create a visual that best represents this approach.  The beautiful image used on this cover option by artist Adam Andrearczyk seems to really capture the emotional and romantic vibe of Save Me.  The background scenery reminds me of an Oregonian  setting while the floating girl with arched back symbolizes the spiritual-like energy and vulnerability in the story. The final cover will need some minor adjustments to better match some specifics in the book but the feeling is well represented in this image.

If you love what Rich is doing here, let us know by leaving a comment and voting for this cover direction. And remember, this is a cover direction, not the final cover, so if you have suggestions for making it even more Swoonworthy, share it in the comments!
