Das Zirpen der Grillen
L. U. Cephir
I write Science Fiction and Fantasy novels, mostly for (young) adults.
Constance Escher is a young xeno biologist working for the secret services. Her current job to uncover a smugglers' organisation by infiltrating them. She joins a mysterious smuggler on board of his sleek space ship "Silver Eagle" on his quest to travel through an uncharted worm hole to gain unimaginable wealth. They encounter the alien "crickets" and Constance needs to communicate with them to prevent an intergalactic war.
This book is the starter of a Space Opera series and is intended for fans of "soft" Science Fiction (not "Military" or "hard").
The cover must convey the main genre Science Fiction and hint at the encounters with the alien species (think of ants or crickets (= Grillen)). Some points to consider: ** I am looking for sth realistic / photoshop'ed showing the space ship / lead character against a backdrop of stars, galaxies, black hole / worm hole, ... maybe somehow featuring the aliens ("Grillen" = crickets). ** The story features some strange "black cloud" that "eats" (military) space ships. The aliens' territory lies behind a "worm hole" that is one of the corner stones of the story. The space ship "Silver Eagle" gets some alien modifications in the end, which transform it from a sleek "yacht for the ultra rich" to something more organic "grown". Constance's looks: 32 years old, ice gray eyes, short brown locks, pale skin, strong cheek bones (can pass as a man)
