Had the pleasure of working with Deb.E Howell on her Deadly touch series last year. This Is the cover for her first book in the series "Healer's Touch".
It's a fantasy novel set in a dark western world, but with a strong romance element also. She has the ability to heal and is hunted for her powers by a skilled warrior, who also becomes her love interest. I really wanted to capture those 2 elements, the dark threat and the lighter romance elements.
I felt like this cover captured that quite well in the end, the warm romantic sunset lighting but with her love interest but also threat, looming dark in the foreground. I really spent a lot of time trying to get the right sense of emotion in her face, a kind of cautious yet curious look. Her healing powers also added a way to bring some more warmth and light to it also and not make it overly dark.
Had a really great time working on this one, Deb was very open to ideas and had a lot of fun collaborating and running ideas back and forth.
