Cover Interview and Giveaway (CLOSED) for Two Moon Princess by Carmen Ferreiro-Esteban

I'm happy to have Carmen Ferreiro-Esteban, author of Two Moon Princess here at One Book At A Time.  I asked her a few questions about the cover of her book, and here is what she had to say.

Two Moon Princess

How much input did you have into the cover of Two Moon Princess?
This is the easier question ever. None.

Does any part of the story come to mind when you see it?
 The part of the story the cover brings to my mind is Andrea's arrival in California after crossing the Arch.

I assume it’s Andrea on the cover.  Is that how you pictured her (or close)?
Yes, she is Andrea. And yes, she does look like the Andrea I had in my mind when writing the story.

Is the cover a mix of the two worlds, or just one particular one?
The background on the cover of Two Moon Princess reminds me of the beach in California where Andrea arrives after crossing through the forbidden arch into our world. The arch in Andrea's world is set in a rougher coastline with high cliffs.  In fact, the picture was taken at the Jersey shore.

Is there anything you wish you could change about the cover?
In Two Moon Princess, Andrea travels between her medieval world and modern day California by crossing an arch in her world that also exists in ours. The arch, a real place in northern Spain, was the seed for the story in Two Moon Princess. So, I would have loved to have the arch in the cover.
You can read more about this at:
  That said, I do love the cover.

 How did your react when you first saw the final cover (or when you saw the cover on an ARC or finished copy)?

Honestly? I thought, wow! What a beautiful picture but, where is the arch?
