Rich’s Petal Cover Design 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 Petal

Originally, I was trying to create a cover image using a white rose which is a key element in the story.  But as I continued to work on it, I realized the falling red flower pedals against the white background seemed to better capture the emotional and romantic feel I was looking for here.  The photo of the girl  seems to have an emotion pull which could be love, relief, sadness or a sense of overcoming.  It is a little more vague or mysterious but again, I think it works nicely in capturing the feel of the story.

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!
