Your comments on my cover choices for the e-book reissue of Reflection were helpful and brilliant! Here are your top four choices in no particular order. Please help me pick the winner. To recap, this is a contemporary story set in the Pennsylvania Dutch country about a woman whom the town of Reflection holds responsible for an old tragedy. It’s multi-layered, serious, full of surprises and the main relationships are between the woman and a man she loves but can’t have, and the woman and her secretive grandmother.
A. ←(ignore the curlicue on her cheek; it won’t be in the final image). I like this image because the tragedy took place in a school and I can imagine that’s a school in the background. Her expression truly reflects her feelings of regret and “what am I going to do now??”
B. →This image received the most votes. I’ve cropped it tighter here so that it would show up better in thumbnail form. I have mixed feelings about it. It doesn’t say much to me, but it seemed to grab many of you and that’s what counts.
C.← This image came in second in your voting. Again, I’ve cropped it tighter. It certainly fits the title of the book.
D. →I’d have to fix her goofy hair and I worry this reads “historical” instead of “contemporary,” but otherwise, I think it’s lovely and evocative.
