Who Will Win Nora's Soul by Margay Leah Justice


Did you design the cover?
No, I didn't design the cover.

Did your publisher design the cover?
No.

Did you get to give any input about the cover design?
Yes, I gave some ideas for it.

Is there an interesting story behind the cover design? If so, please share the details.

Well, I had this image in my head of three people - Nora, of course, Peter (the light angel) and Dante (the dark angel) - but it was difficult to find just the right pictures to convey the tone I wanted. Finally, I just told the cover designer that if it was easier to use symbolism to convey the nature of the book, do that instead. The result was the angel wing cover design that is on the book.

Who is the cover artist?

Stacy Castanedo

Are you happy with the cover?

Very much so. I love it!


Tell us what you think is the best part of the cover.

The way she cast a white wing in black shadow and a black wing in white - it perfectly conveys the essence of the story.

Claire and Storyheart, I have to agree that the cover is one of the most unique I've ever seen and it captures the essence of the book in its simplest forms. To me, that is a sign of sheer talent and once again, I top off my hat to the incredible Stacy Castanedo. Simply an amazing job!
