Self-publishing. Target audience is male + female, children of 70's culture specifically, but should appeal to all.
What's your vision?
My second novel, Finding Grand, is a love story set in the Grand Canyon in 1979. I need a cover that captures the feel of the seventies and ideally blends it in with something Grand Canyon-like. And I need it to be broadly appealing (to both male + female). Prefer retro, old-fashioned feel with more muted/faded colors. I will publish as an eBook for Kindle to start, and later possibly for other devices(Nook,etc.) or paper copy. Simply needs to meet Amazon Kindle specs for now. I'm attaching a file, which contains a logo that captures the feel of my ideal vision. I really like the idea of seventies colors/lines/shapes to create a Grand Canyon-like scene. Only other things required to be on the image somewhere would be title, Finding Grand, and author name, Tim Holsten. Thank you very much.
I prefer not to have a stock picture of the Grand Canyon with the book's title pasted across it. I believe a novel with a stock picture of the Grand Canyon on the cover will NOT appeal broadly. Also, note that this is not solely a Romance-categorized book and there should not be any realistic romance on the cover. Below is the Synopsis for this book if it will help for the creative process: If you observe someone’s eyes as they pause at the rim of the Grand Canyon, you can tell they’re looking for more than just nature’s awe-inspiring example of erosion. Their mind is in overdrive seeking meaning, hoping to use the big void to fill holes in their own life, and contemplating what they are truly capable of when something so beautiful can be created out of rock. Locals call it finding grand. In 1979, the last year of a decade disco dancing its way from counterculture to conservatism, Kevin and Mae, two lost youths, meet while searching for that meaning. As they descend, they discover that the danger in the canyon can exceed its beauty, and that love and faith, like rock, are also vulnerable to erosion. Will they find what they’re looking for in each other, and can a three-day romance in the Grand Canyon be deep enough to last a lifetime—or, at least, longer than disco?
