cover remake: Haven + contest

Written by Darlyn At Saturday, January 22, 2011
Amelia at Imagination in Focus is hosting a cover re-create contest of upcoming book release; Haven by Kristi Cook. The author is going to pick the winner!

Original Cover of Haven by Kristi Cook
Book blurb:

One month into her junior year, sixteen-year-old Violet McKenna transfers to the Winterhaven School in New York’s Hudson Valley, inexplicably drawn to the boarding school with high hopes. Leaving Atlanta behind, she’s looking forward to a fresh start--a new school, and new classmates who will not know her deepest, darkest secret, the one she’s tried to hide all her life: strange, foreboding visions of the future.

But Winterhaven has secrets of its own, secrets that run far deeper than Violet’s. Everyone there--every student, every teacher--has psychic abilities, 'gifts and talents,' they like to call them. Once the initial shock of discovery wears off, Violet realizes that the school is a safe haven for people like her. Soon, Violet has a new circle of friends, a new life, and maybe even a boyfriend--Aidan Gray, perhaps the smartest, hottest guy at Winterhaven.

Only there’s more to Aidan than meets the eye--much, much more. And once she learns the horrible truth, there’s no turning back from her destiny. Their destiny. Together, Violet and Aidan must face a common enemy--if only they can do so without destroying each other first.


Here's my cover remake with a little help of my friend, Taufik (thanks!). I kind of have no idea how to create another cover that at least keep the originality of the actual book cover. Thing that I love most of our cover is the blue butterfly (same as on the original book cover) and also the butterflies on the model's hair. Squeee! And the red rose is cool (I don't know what's purpose of it) but the only flaw of it is the cover has the goth element color (black and red). I don't know but it's the best we can re-create. And the second one is another effort of my friend to make another great one. I love how it has so many colourful ambiance on that. I only hope Kristi Cook will at least like it. Well, it's just for fun anyway =)

What do you think???

Update: My entry will be the 1st one (on the left).


  1. I think your cover is fabulous! Good luck in the contest!

  2. Your cover looks amazing!! Like it much better than the original cover!

  3. I like both of them. The first one is dark ans has the paranormal/urban fantasy theme going on but the second is artistic with lighter colors and looks softer.


Thanks for the comments! XOXO ;p
