What's your vision?
I'm looking for a thought provoking and eye-catching book cover for a paranormal romance, "Allure of the Incubus." The novel is set in rural Ohio (farm country) and involves a young woman who's refurbishing a haunted house. Here's the back cover info: Jennifer adores living in Allure Valley, Ohio. But the town is hiding a secret. A secret that dwells in the 200 year old farmhouse she is rehabbing. Handsome and charming, Morgan, an incubus who has been preying upon the women of the town since he was murdered centuries before, chooses Jennifer as his next conquest. Deprived of his own true love, he is desperate to find one as pure in spirit with which to share eternity. Naïve and innocent, Jennifer is overwhelmed by the deliciously carnal experiences he offers and gives in to a sexual appetite she didn’t know she possessed. But there is a price to pay. After each increasingly passionate encounter, she feels weak and nauseated; chilled to the core, and Morgan is moving ever closer to his heart’s desire by draining her life force. Before she succumbs to his deadly embrace, Jennifer wants to break free and build a life with Nathan, her intriguing neighbor, and the women of Allure Valley know how. Targeted by the sexually hungry Morgan, each was able to throw off his consuming advances. They resisted Morgan, but they aren’t talking and Jennifer is growing weaker every day. If the women don’t give up their secrets in time, Jennifer may lose herself in forbidden passion and join Morgan in love and death.
The book is 5.25" x 8" (front cover dimensions). The front graphic will be used for both a trade paperback (print) and a digital eBook. As a result, the graphic must be adaptable for both media. The front, back and spine must be included in the final design, but for the initial consideration, only the front is critical. The final graphic must be in a layered PNG format to enable me to modify the title, author's name, etc. A specific location must be left for the barcode; this is fixed and cannot be moved. The preferred color scheme is RGB, not CYMK. The attached file is the winning design for my "Modern Family" book cover. Notice that the back is an open design that allows me to put in my author's picture, bar code, blurb, etc., without disrupting the design. The title for this book is quite busy; "Allure of the Incubus" is much more simple. As the design progresses, we can work to fine tune these elements. Also, "Modern Family" is a highly graphical design; "Allure of the Incubus" should be softer, more realistic and, above all, romantic.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at €269.
Full copyright with production-ready files for digital and/or print.
