Looking for a cover for a YA novel series. This is a planned trilogy based in the fictional town of Lake Haven, Maine. It is a very intense and dark series revolving around a car accident, two survivors and their lives afterward which begins to lean heavily towards the paranormal. See blurb for details.
Our favorite ideas involve a simple image that can be changed per volume to reflect the mood of that specific book. The author is partial to the butterfly imagery.
Butterflies are deep and powerful representations of life. Many cultures associate the butterfly with our souls. The Christian religion sees the butterfly as a symbol of resurrection. Around the world, people view the butterfly as representing endurance, change, hope, and life. Maybe for second book, butterfly with clipped wings. Maybe for third, the butterfly flying"
This does not mean you HAVE to use a butterfly, if you have an idea that moves you, go for it.
See reference images to get idea of how we'd like the covers to relate to each other.
