I am not a cover designer but I can agree that cover layouts play an important role in the overall presentation of books and I must admit, often times I first judge a book by its cover.
Collide by Michelle Madow
Published February 9th 2017 by Dreamscape Publishing
I should have died when I was shot at the Halloween dance.
Instead I woke up—one week earlier, in a parallel universe where my mom’s fatal car accident six months ago never happened.
A world with my mom still in it was all I ever wanted. But in this timeline, everything is different—my grades, my friends, and even my boyfriend. I’m a stranger in my own body, and I don’t like who I’ve become.
But one thing is the same—that shooting will still happen at the end of the week.
I’m the only one who knows. Which means I’m the only one who can stop it.
But first I need to convince someone—anyone—that I’m telling the truth… and then get them to help me.
This cover really appeals to me in a number of ways. I love the vibrant colors used and the dramatic flare of the girl’s dress. Not only that but the picture of the clock in the background. The way the girl is facing it and how her dress flares out around her shows movement. The title Collide is perfect for this cover and I look forward to finding out how it connects to the story. Great cover for a fantasy story!
