A cover for Melange Books. For this one, we focused on conveying the genre of the book, rather than particular characters.

For the back cover, I flipped the background from the front cover with a few adjustments. Also, I saved the bow and arrow silhouette as a smart object so that it could easily be resized and added to the spine if the publisher chooses to do so.
