We are authors who write and sell books aimed at primarily women over 40 who are looking for more in their lives. These women tend to be married, college educated, and employed.
What's your vision?
This is the first of a 5-book series of contemporary romance. The series is called The LateBloomers, a series about 5 women friends over 40 and their adventures in finding love, and the first book is called Wild Rose. The main character is Rose. We'd like the cover to be one that is easily duplicated in style across 5 books, and we'd like to commission the rest of the 4 covers from the winning designer after this project is done. We are drawn to a cover without specific faces on it so the reader is free to imagine herself there. Some types of covers we like are: http://goo.gl/0jwoQA and http://goo.gl/u36hBh , though we would love to see your imagination on this. The "late bloomers" are 5 close friends who are each single, independent, successful, and seeking something more for their lives. Each book will be dedicated to a single character and the story of her finding new love. The books will each be set in a different city in the world so travel will play a part as well in the stories. The "Late Bloomers" title refers to the age of the characters and also the flower names of each of the main characters. The first book, Wild Rose, tells the story of a 41 year old woman who has spent the last 20 years raising her daughter as a single mother. She owns her own landscape design firm, but is tired of living a life so restricted. When her daughter takes off on a year long adventure she finds her opportunity to spread her wings. The book takes place primarily on the shores of Lake Como where Rose meets Mateo, a 45 year old Spaniard who now owns and operates a restaurant there in Italy. The goal for the cover is to correctly portray Rose (long reddish-brown hair) and Mateo (dark wavy hair and a trim beard) and the story of their falling in love. This is not a "bodice ripper", but instead a love story between 2 mature adults finding love over 40. We want the cover to appeal to women who can see themselves in the story. We are open to various design ideas, but our goal will ultimately be to create a standard design we can apply to the future 4 books in the series. We are fine using stock images as well, but want to ensure any models are age appropriate and not half naked. It is important the cover reflects the tone of the story itself.
