I was working on some covers for my Chances Are series. I was trying to find stock photos, but then I saw a neat picture on Fotolia and got another idea. This was the picture, although it was in black-and-white, not blue and obviously it didn't have text on it.
Anyway, the silhouette and shadow gave me an idea. In the first book a grizzled cop named Steve becomes a young woman named Stacey, so I thought of using a woman's silhouette but with a man's shadow, like this:
In the second one Stacey becomes a little girl, so this one has a little girl's silhouette with a woman's shadow:
Finally in the third one she's getting married, but a killer Steve put away 25 years ago breaks out of jail to come after her. So I thought to use a bride silhouette and then a skeleton shadow.
I'm not thrilled with the skeleton; I think I need to find a better picture for it.
Anyway, these are just prototypes. I'm just curious what you think of the concept, if it's neat or if it's stupid.
