Continuing our quest for the right cover for SAVAGE ANGELS, talented artist Holly Knevelbaard turned in a series of cover concepts.
Pulling another scene from the book, she did a concept she called “Procession”.
We liked this one a lot because it gave the reader a good idea of the characters and their personalities, even though seen at a distance.
…but we still weren’t 100% satisfied (picky, picky, picky!)
There were a few issues re costume designs, particular Sister Agnes’ wimple, which in this version looked more like a hijab than a nun’s habit.
So even though we found this design promising, we passed…
As we posted earlier, we spend a significant amount of time & effort making sure we have the best cover possible for each book we release.
We gave the extremely talented Holly Knevelbaard a sneak peak at the manuscript* and asked her to work up some ideas.
You’ve already seen one, her airplane concept. Here’s another try:
Holly called this one “Pray” and it depicts a scene that takes place shortly after the girls manage to reach the island.
Better than the airplane idea, but not quite there yet. The girls are too small in the image, and there’s no sense of the story itself, what they’re doing there or how they arrived in such a predicament.
So Holly took another swing at a cover idea…
* She loves it, BTW, and says she would even if we weren’t paying her! ;)
