Help me design a book cover for my upcoming novel!

My upcoming YA novel is coming along in lurches and stalls and lunges. It’s a departure from my usual approach to fiction — which is a light-hearted, fun romp kind of approach — this one’s a thinky kind of story. Turns out, thinking is harrrrrd. 😉

So, I thought I’d take a break and fool around with cover ideas. Would love some input!

The book is tentatively titled, SHE. I’m not going to tell you more than that right now, because I want your opinion — if you saw this cover and that title, what would you think?

(The reason her nose is blurred out is because it’s a stock image I will purchase if I go forward with this design, so I smeared the watermark so it’s not so distracting for testing purposes. Never fear; if this is the cover I go with, a) I will purchase the image, naturally, and b) she will have nostrils.)


If you play along and give me some input, I’ll give you more info — and probably other designs — as this evolves. I appreciate the help!
