I don't have a company, i'm an human and i have a dream: to be read. I'm looking for a book cover that can attract young and not-so-young people (target 16-35 years old). An ironic but highly believable book cover with a thriller, misterious style. I'm looking for a cover that can transform my self-pubished book in a professional book. -------------ITALIANO------------- Non ho una socità, sono un essere umano e ho un sogno: essere letto. Sto cercando una copertina che sappia attirare ragazzi giovani e non-più-così-giovani (target 16-35 anni). Una copertina ironica ma estremamente credibile con uno stile mystery, thriller. Sto cercando una copertina che possa trasformare il mio libro autopubblicato in un libro professionale.
What's your vision?
The title must be visibile and readable with this capital letters: Jack lo SquartatorTe. The capital T is a must because inside it there is whole the sense of the book: it contain the difference between Jack the Ripper (Jack lo squartatore) and Jack the CAKE Ripper (Jack lo squartaTORTE - Main character of my book). It is the difference between a real Thriller made of human victims, killers and my Thriller; because my book is humorous, ironic, surreal: the victims are not persons but cakes, however the mystery is authentic and realistic. A surreal story writed and lived as a real story. So this is how I expect the book cover: REALISTIC. -------------ITALIANO------------- Il titolo deve essere leggibile e scritto con queste maiuscole: Jack lo SquartatorTe. La T maiuscola è fondamentale perchè racchiude tutto il senso del libro. La differenza tra un Thriller reale fatto di vittime umane e assassini e il mio Thriller; perchè la storia che racconto è umoristica, ironica, surreale. Le vittime non sono persone ma torte, però il mistero è autentico e realistico. Una storia surreale vissuta dai protagonisti e scritta come una storia reale. Così mi aspetto la copertina del libro: REALISTICA
Remember it's an humorous story but must look realistic. I will attach the image of the actual cover. You don't need to follow this idea, i'm sure you will have more imagination. But at least you can see all the elements.
