The author says:
Growing Amaranth is a retelling of Rapunzel. Amaranth lives in a secluded cottage with her mother when she meets a young boy who helps her realize she’s not as free as she thought. Her mother traps her in a tower when she discovers her friendship. Amaranth starts at 9 years old, but it follows her until she is 17. Its for YA, focused more on emotionally abused youth/adult. It is set in a fictional medieval/regency time.
It’s a nice image. Let’s make it pop!
- It’s the Rapunzel story? Make the braid longer! I don’t care if it actually figures into the story. Make it longer!
- Play with the contrast and saturation. Make the picture come alive!
- Why are you hiding your byline in teeny type? You wrote a book. Be proud! You’d got that extra space along the top — put your byline there, then make the title just a bit larger to take up the space you just vacated.
