I have a story that’s being written right now, and covers are pretty important to me so I’ve been throwing around some ideas on what I should make the cover like. Here’s the synopsis of the story:
When Liron is institutionalized after a suicide attempt, she learns that mental wards are very different from what she thought- in some ways good, other ways bad.
Here are the ideas I have:
-The mc of the story running away from something in a psychiatric hospital hallway (the mc would be facing forward, so it’d look like she was sort of running towards you)
-A shattered mirror, showing the reflection of the mc doing some sort of shocked or freaked-out facial expression, kiiiind of like the bloody mary movie poster, except, y’know, less shitty
-The mc with a hand wrapped around her mouth, sorta looks like the movie poster for that 80’s movie bad dreams
Which idea sounds the most likely to look like a cover that would draw you in?
