Here it is!! ISN’T IT PRETTY???!!!
The cover art was done by my mother, Susan Kent Berrier, and I am so in love with the way it turned out! She referenced a lot of pictures on my Pinterest board to get a feel for how Ellsie looked in my mind, and I think she totally nailed it! (Don’t you just love that skirt??)
Here’s the back, also…
I had a last minute crisis about what color to make the background… Ever since I started working on this story, I’d always associated it with blue and silver. A lot of the critical scenes in the book take place at night and under the stars.
But then—like, a week before I printed it—I thought, “Hey, what about red?!” and I redid everything with a red background instead. Which, I’m not gonna lie, looked pretty cool, and tied in with the fire. Ultimately, though, I’m happy I stuck with the blue and silver. It just seems to fit the tone of the book better.
So, anyway, there it is 🙂 Now that the cover is officially out, I have it up on Goodreads, if you wanted to add it. (You’ll totally make my day if you do!)
