Help me with a book cover!

Okay, so it's been a while, but I've been busy. Life is busy. Sometimes too much so, but alas, that is our plight in this modern world.  This is the exciting part. I am very close to publishing my second novel. I have done about ten major rewrites and feel like it is finally in a good place.  But I have a problem. I can't decide on a name. In the beginning it was called, Bubble Land. If you read the story you will understand it. But most people who haven't read the story aren't going to get it. So I changed it to, Escaping Bubble Land. Still people don't get it. So then I went to A Broken Road. But there are lots of books with that same title. I want something a little more unique.  So this is where I need your help. I need your opinion. Just a quick answer will do.  What should the name be called? And what cover do you like the best?  After reading a small blurb about the book, check out the photos and let me know what you think.

   Twenty year old Cass gave up on life after the death of her little brother. Six years later she has made a mess of her life. A college drop-out facing her first DUI and six months of probation, she is forced to return home to live with her parents and get her life back in order. But Cass has secrets that keep her from believing change is even possible. When she meets James-- a former secret crush now working on her parents fledgling farm for the summer-- she is resigned to believe that with all the mistakes she has made her chance of winning James' affection is zero. But some things haven't changed: her love for James. Even when she discovers that he has a serious girlfriend, Cass can't help but fall in love with James' kind and nurturing ways as he works to bring the failing Wyoming farm back to life just as he encourages Cass to believe in herself again. But temptation lurks behind every corner and the possibility of her secret past coming to light forces Cass to choose if she has the will to change or if she will return to her life of alcohol abuse.

Here are a few cover possibilities:   Lights will guide you home

                                                Healing Hands, or Light to guide you home or Will to change or
                                                  Bubble Land, or Girl in a Bubble, Broken wings.


  1. I like the second cover, and "Will to Change" or what about "Road to Change" or "Hard Changes" or "Choice to Change"? I am excited to read, am super curious of all the changes from the first go round! You rock!

  2. I like those. Will to change and road to change are good. Yes, many many many changes. Somethings will be very familiar though. Thanks for always being willing to read. Hope you are doing well!

  3. Hi Rebecca,

    I was wondering what you would charge to Direct a couple of scenes shooting Monday the 17th in the evening in SLC? It is for my three hour musical Sisters Go Ye. They are some transition scenes.; 810-424-0772 in Michigan.
