Imprint Cover Reveal

HI GUYS! WOW I have some exciting news (which you probably already guessed from the title of this post)… IT’S COVER REVEAL TIME!

I have been working on this creation for what feels like forever, but it’s finally finished and I’m so excited to share it with you!

This cover was a real challenge for me. I went back and forth a lot on the concept and design of it for so long. I am a huge perfectionist, and it felt like nothing I did could ever be exactly what I wanted. Even with a degree in graphic design, it felt like I kept hitting a wall so many times, over and over again. I debated hiring someone to design it for me; I got so, so close to having someone else do the cover, but financial issues and creative differences kept pushing back. It was so infuriating, because as a graphic designer, I had a vision in mind, but I just couldn’t get it out of my head.

So I finally pulled my family in and asked for their help. After I clumsily explained the general vibe and idea I had in my head, my sister drew up a beautiful concept that I immediately knew would be the one. It was simple, but still conveyed the type of meaning that I wanted. It was perfect.

And now, I’m happy to finally present this cover to you! Drum roll please…

And here we are!

I could not be happier with how this turned out! It works so wonderfully with the story, and I love the the simplicity of it. I’m so grateful for the help of family in a time of frustration and need! ^_^

Blurb:

Like so many bookworms, Paige Turner loves escaping into the world of stories. However, unlike other bookworms, she can literally escape into the world of stories through the ink on the pages.

When two strange men set out to kidnap Paige and her friend Markus, she is terrified. So used to hiding from her problems in the world of books, Paige doesnโ€™t know what to do when the trouble begins to spill into her real life. And when the danger looms and threatens the safety of her family, she realizes that terrified or not, she must fight back. And to do that, Paige and Markus must use the gifts to discover why these strange men are after two innocent teenagers.

But the truth turns out to be far stranger than fiction, and it twists their entire world upside down. Can Paige find the strength to battle her anxiety and use her extraordinary gift…or will she lose everything and everyone she ever cared about?

So tell me, what do you think? I’d love to know your opinion on this cover! Let me know in the comments down below! And don’t forget to mark your calendars: Imprint releases August 1st!

  1. I really like it! I think it fits the story well. My favorite part is the pages in the background!! And I love the silhouettes and how they kind of look like they were paper that had to be smoothed out a bit, and the fonts go so well with it all… and yes, it is very simple, but it really delivers on the “meta fiction” genre vibes, which is super cool.

    • Thanks!! I’m glad you like it! The background was a lot of fun to make. If you look closely, you can see that the text is taken from old fairy tales. ๐Ÿ™‚ I like the paper texture too, and choosing fonts was great fun. I’m glad it gives off a meta vibe; that’s what I was hoping for! ๐Ÿ˜€
