Hello! I need an ebook cover for ERIS, Vol. 1, a collection of short stories describing the misadventures of the worlds worst demon hunters. A paranormal fantasy adventure, each story revolves around a continuous cast of characters (if you know the television show Archer, you have an idea of style, tone, and humor). ERIS, the agency of demon hunters, is named for Eris, the goddess of chaos and discord known for using a golden apple to encourage an argument between Athena, Hera, and Aphrodite, which triggered the Trojan War. I have attached the first story in pdf format, for reference. I need a cover that conveys paranormal action and humor, with a slightly cartoony feel (for an adult audience, 16+). Cover needs to meet size standards for Amazon and Kobo. I have two ideas (added #2 after the original post): IDEA#1 ERIS COMPANY LOGO WITH ACCOMPANYING CHARACTER(S) The logo is a golden apple with a tentacled Cthulhu demon (the owner of ERIS) engaged with the apple (straddling it, wrapped around it, busting out of the core, maybe tentacles poking through the apple like a worm—you get the idea). I described Cthulhu demon as having one eye and fish lips, but you can go to town on the rest of it. Give it weapons if you want. For additional elements, there are three central characters that can be added (they should have weapons--modern, medieval, magical fantasy, anything cool and destructive). The characters (all demon hunters), in order of importance: (these descriptions are vague because I don’t specify much in the stories. You can go with your own imagination, except where specified): (1) a slightly over the hill frat boy ex-jock man-child (caucasian, birthing the start of a beer gut, late 20’s, wears a business suit, wishes he were James Bond), (2) a woman who likes big guns (latino, late 20’s, athletic, stern), (3) a bi-horned rock demon (can have eye glasses, a badass scientist who is above everything). IDEA#2 THREE CENTRAL CHARACTERS IN STAR WARS/JAMES BOND POSE Character 1 from above as the center. He should be holding an apple in one hand and a modern destructive weapon in the other (crossing the two over his chest?). Characters 2 and 3 on either side of him. Some suggestion of the Cthulhu demon (character 1's possessive demon-mother)
I trust that you have a much better idea than I do on how to make an attractive book cover. If you have some ideas other than the above, shoot me a message or just go for it!
