Cover for a suspense/thriller novel.
Author Name "David Sterago." Book Title: "Murder by Suicide" Along with the title, I'll need the series name represented. "A David Crockett Thriller."
The first element I really want are an aerial view of Salt Lake City. I have attached an image I really like as an example. The attached image has a great sense of isolation.
My second element I really want is an image of spilled wine on a nightstand with sleeping pills somewhere in the image. With this image I really want to portray that it could be suicide(with the pills) but the spilled red wine gives the impression that there's more going on. I've attached an image that I really like to give you an idea of what I mean.
I would really like the primary color scheme to be a yellowish-brown, like leaves turning color and dying, but feel free to play around with different colors as long as it can evoke a sense suspense or intrigue while still being grounded and catching the reader's attention.
I've attached a word doc with my rough ideas for the cover, as well as the text for the back cover.
