Teresarocks42 got their new book cover by running a design contest:
book or magazine cover for Why I Married a Murderer...and How I Survived the Divorce
Check out Teresarocks42's Book cover contest…
A memoir of the men in my life who made me the woman I am today. However, the main focus is what on earth would possess a smart girl to marry a man in prison, how she fought to get him out early, the mind games he played with her heart, and how she lived thru the emotional hell of the divorce only to realize that just because a man is not a criminal, that doesn't mean he still can't be an asshole and break your heart.
What's your vision?
Idea #1: Art done similar to this (or like many books out there right now including 50 Shades, etc) http://www.amazon.com/Rayven-Skyy-Presents-Pen-ebook/dp/B008DYXT5S/ref=sr_1_9?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1367513882&sr=1-9&keywords=penpal Image would be pen laying almost laterally, held delicately by a man's strong hand but gentle grip, NOT like he is using it as a stabbing instrument, but NOT like he is writing with it either.. almost half between that he could go either way in a split second. The pen is dripping red ink that looks like blood but at first its coming out forming little hearts, but as it streams to the puddle/pool below, the hearts turn into daggers. The transition from hearts to daggers would have to be subtle... but noticeable. The two things that should catch my eye (I would think) would be the silvery tip to the pen that would make it look sharp even tho its not, and the somewhat large pool of ink/blood on the bottom (I may want to use the bottom of the pool to frame a subtitle, my name as the author, etc.. ) Idea #2: On right side there are just enough jail cel bars to show an arm extending thru the bars holding out an engagement ring (like he is proposing thru the bars). On the left side is me, either a photo or a character drawing of me similar to the one of me at www.teresastales.com where I am holding a torch. However, in this drawing, I would look confident, yet skeptical, curious, yet hesitant... maybe with arms folded and foot out like I am saying "give me one reason why I should". yet I have that look like I already know I will, I am just playing hard to get. In this image, it should basically BE the hook that draws the reader in to find out what he said/did to convince me to marry him.
NOTE: The 1 Page Ad - Cover file is working copy cover. The characters on cover are same type characters that are the chapter headings. I don't really want this type of 'cute' on the cover, but I can't have something dark and diabolical on the cover either when the inside is light, humorous with a sprinkle of evil mind games.
