I am an author. The genre is Suspense / Romantic Suspense
What's your vision?
I would like a cover for my book titled, His Frozen Heart. I like the photo I have attached, but I am not a fan of the scarf. I purchased it from istockphoto but I am not directing that it be used, this is just a possibility, as it looks like the main character. As far as the background: something with an old muscle car, a pool table, a snow scene or a rural town main street could all be possibilities. Please be creative! The book cover should be eye-catching when it is the size of a "thumbnail." The reason for this is most of my customers will see it when it is very small, it needs to catch their attention enough for them to "click" on it to read the synopsis and reviews. Text that will need to be incorporated are the title and my name. His Frozen Heart and Nancy Straight. You are not required to use the stock art I have selected, this is just a good picture of main love interest from the book. Here is the synopsis of the story: For best friends, Candy and Libby, money is tight with hardly enough to cover their living expenses. When they are desperate for grocery money, the girls bet on their pool playing skills to add to their income. A simple wager on a quiet winter evening has devastating results, with a stalker determined to kill them both. With Libby in the hospital after a vicious attack, and Candy being pursued by the same stalker, she vows to find Libby's attacker. What she finds is Dave, an old friend with a secret past filled with misfortune. Will Dave’s past provide the answer to all of Candy’s problems or will it become Candy’s worst nightmare realized?
The book cover should convey that the book is in the suspense / suspenseful romance genre. The book cover should be vertical rectangle-shaped (the height is greater than the width), not squares, and must be a minimum width of 1,400 pixels. A recommended size is approximately 1,600 pixels wide by 2,400 pixels tall (the proportions of most paperback books in the USA, which have height 1.5 times greater than their width).
