What's your vision?
Eye Catching Covers for New Adult Trilogy I need 3 book cover for a new adult PARANORMAL trilogy. I need Photoshop files with all layers intact and unlocked, including adjustment layers and editable Type layers. All images should have a minimum resolution of 300 DPI. I want links to any stock used as I plan to purchase a license to use in other promotional materials. Details: Size: The books will be 6"x9". The spine's width should be 1.2875" Spine: Must include the PenDreams logo at the bottom (attached eps files) Book 1 Title: One Wish Away Book 2 Title: Two Hearts Asunder Book 3 Title: Three Words Promised I want the book titles to be prominent and use an ornamental, flowing font to suggest romace. I want them to have a similar theme, but vary in color. Author Name: Ingrid Seymour (In a more contemporary font and in all caps) Cover Element Ideas: I'd like to communicate a sense of romance and *magic*, tending more toward the dark. You have freedom to try different ideas. (I have one concept described below, but I'm really looking for a variate of concepts.) I'm not against having people in the covers as long as the design is eye catching. Nothing sexually overt, though. If people included: No more than a young girl and young man. Girl: black hair, green eyes. Man: Black hair, dark eyes, olive skin. If there is a girl, I want her to wear a acorn pendant. Here is a description of the first book: As Marielle’s bloody tears seep into a magical stone tablet, a tantalizing breeze caresses her neck and Faris, a dark, sexy Djinn, materializes at her side. Finding her unprepared to make a wish, he beguiles and romances her with his drop-dead gorgeous looks and tantalizing magic, stalling her to prolong his freedom. But Marielle isn’t one to trust romantic advances, especially from arrogant mythical beings, and certainly not when strange accidents begin to threaten her life at every turn. Soon she realizes that, by releasing Faris, she has unwittingly inserted herself into the middle of a centuries-old mortal conflict between two spell-bound Djinns. They both must break the curse to regain their freedom, but Faris’s brother, Zet, seeks only revenge and power, which involve trapping Faris for all eternity by killing his new master, Marielle. In her desperate fight to stay alive, Marielle devises a plan to defeat Zet. But when the deranged Djinn kidnaps her best friend, she’s faced with the difficult choice of saving Faris, the irresistible Djinn who has stolen her heart, or sacrificing someone she cares for. ***** UPDATED 6/23: I would really like to see other concepts besides the one below!! Maybe even some with people at this point. UPDATED 6/22: This is one concept I have, but I do want to see other ideas, especially since I'm not sure this one will really work and be appealing. I don't want the acorns/sapling/tree to look too "photoshoped" or too earthy, I guess. I don't want them to be quite so literal either. I would like an interesting background. Book 1: A man's hand with an acorn on his palm. The man wears a hide golden bracelet (maybe with a vague design on it or completely smooth) around his wrist, like Djinn sometimes do. There might be a little bit of light coming from the bracelet to indicate magic Book 2: A woman's hand with a sapling on her palm Book 3: Woman and man's interlaced hands with a live oak tree in the distance and maybe a sunrise. UPDATED 6/23: A live oak looks more like the picture attached. In general, the acorn/sapling/oak tree elements could be used in any design. They could very well be the focal points or just other elements. These three elements are important in the books and represent the growth of the story and relationship. HOW ABOUT where these elements are a little abstract even? UPDATED 6/24: Another interesting element that could be included maybe in the background (kind of like in the betrayed.jpg file attached) is to use a Persian pattern to suggest the Djinn's origin. I have attached some visuals, including some covers I find appealing. Have fun with it. I'm open to any great designs as long as they catch my eye.
