Check out brookeestanton's Book cover contest…
Entertainment & The Arts
The Misadventures of Catie Bloom is a novel. A romantic comedy in the style of Sophie Kinsella or Meg Cabot. Book Description: Catie Bloom has it all. A gorgeous husband, loving dog, cooking skills to rival Julia Child, a wildly successful column for Simply Chic magazine, and the The New York Times just labeled her the younger, hipper Martha Stewart for the next generation. Except, it’s all a lie. No dog. No husband. And she can’t cook. It all comes to a head when her boss invites a TV crew into her home to film a Christmas special featuring the latest media darling, Max Euston, a wounded war journalist. Now she needs to find a dog, learn to cook, and get a husband, in less than two weeks.
What's your vision?
The book cover needs to include the title, author name, and tagline. The Misadventures of Catie Bloom Brooke Chirone A Romantic Comedy The cover will be used for both ebook and print editions. I would like the cover to reflect humor or misadventure. Someone not quite hitting the mark. It can be illustrations or photography. If you put a woman or man on the cover, I don't want to see their full faces. I want the readers to use their imaginations to picture the characters. A hint of what they look like, body shots, silhouettes, is fine. The heroine and love interest both have brown hair. BUT don't feel you have to put the heroine on the cover. Also, if you put the dog on the cover, it's a greyhound. The cover needs make it clear that it is a romantic comedy and be easily read and understood when viewing it as a small thumbnail on places like Amazon. Catie Bloom has long, brown hair. She's elegant and chic. A stylish career woman in NYC. She's a journalist for a lifestyle magazine and her passion is interior design but she fakes that she is also an expert on cooking and animals and has a husband. Her audience/readers think she has it all together but she's hanging on by a thread. I'm just brainstorming here, but the damsel in distress ideas that capture a girl in trouble I'm thinking are: she's hanging off one of the letters of the title, about to fall. Or the dog and other elements of the book are barely hanging on and she's perfectly put together (though, that may be too busy). Or she's on a pile of something and is about to teeter off (like on the cover of The Knockoff, which I attached). Or she's on a tightrope balancing (maybe the guy is helping her stay on or ready to catch her). Not saying you have to do any of the above, just giving ideas. I don't want it to be too busy, though. You're the designer, so I'll leave it up to your professional knowledge of clean and concise book design. Also, please don't just do the front cover design, but show what the back, spine, and front cover would look like together. Thanks!
I'm attaching book covers I love from known authors in my genre. I've also attached my author headshot for the back of the book to be used next to the author bio.
