When I first saw the new cover for Solstice, I tried to place exactly what it was that worked so well for me. Sure, there are a million young adult book covers out there, and I like some more than others. But with the cover for Solstice, there was something special. Something that really drew me in.
It took me a while to figure out what it was, but after staring at it for hours and hours on end, it dawned on me.
This cover was me!
Like somehow the artist crept into my brain and picked out all the things I loved, and managed to get them all on the cover. Score! I just won the cover lottery!
With this in mind, I’m going to share four things that inspired the cover for Solstice (or at least inspired the words inside Solstice which then inspired the cover for Solstice).
