I'm self-publishing a young adult fantasy novel for print (Createspace) and ebook (Kindle, Kobo, Apple, Nook, and Smashwords).
What's your vision?
"The Blood Moon" is a young adult fantasy novel about two brothers, Josh and Chris, who are witches and are faced with the growing threat of their uncle, Will, who is a dark knight and is secretly taking over the demonic hierarchy of the supernatural world. Along the way they meet another young witch, Holly, who brings a host of conflicts to the story. This book will be the first in a series, so I would like some level of consistency between the books in the series, whether it be a small logo or the same font among the books. Right now I'm only looking for the cover for "The Blood Moon." I would like a simple design that symbolizes the book as a whole rather than depicting a particular scene in the book. I was thinking of a couple different ideas, but I definitely am open to other suggestions! 1.) Two boys walking down an alley at night. Their bodies are shadows and the blood moon is in the sky amongst clouds. 2.) Simply an image of a blood moon in the night sky surrounded by clouds. Be creative, but these are some of the ideas I have.
Some of the themes in the book are the battle between good and evil, and I want the cover to showcase the spirituality of the magic they use, but it's not essential. I don't want the cover to look like a typical fantasy novel (e.g. http://tinyurl.com/pa688ur). I do like the simplicity in the covers like the ones in this series: http://tinyurl.com/n525qot
