What's your vision?
I'm looking for a cover for a young adult fantasy novel. This will be published as a softcover (POD) and an ebook so full front and back design is required for the physical copy. Front cover and spine text: ICE MASSACRE Tiana Warner Back: Please leave room for synopsis, testimonials, and barcode. Dimensions: 5.5" x 8.5". Please conform to the attached template from CreateSpace. Please deliver me the photoshop file so I can add in the back-cover text. Image ideas (creative liberties encouraged): The book features a hunt for "sea demons" (scary mermaids). Mermaids are beautiful to seduce sailors, then they transform into flesh-eating demons. Physical traits include: red eyes and sharp teeth like those of a demon, slightly decaying skin, webbed hands. While I don't want nudity, try to avoid showing a mermaid in clothing. :) Some inspiring images: - A sea demon / mermaid: http://bit.ly/1gPvKOd - A creepy mermaid: http://bit.ly/1nmUHYF - This kind of dark fantasy tone: http://j-u-d-a-s.deviantart.com/art/B-r-e-e-d-245852851 Other plot points you could incorporate (though not necessary) - The protagonist is an 18 year old Native American girl. She is good with a crossbow. The story takes place on an island in the Pacific Ocean near Haida Gwaii. I'm a fan of minimalism. Showing only a creepy face emerging from the water, and/or mermaid tail, and/or webbed hand, etc, appeals to me. Big block letters with a texture work best for the font.
This is the first in a trilogy so there is potential business for the next two! Please keep branding in mind for the future, i.e. I like the way the books in The Hunger Games trilogy are easily identified as being in the same series.
