Entertainment & The Arts
I am a prize-winning novelist, N. Y. Times & HuffPost essayist, screenwriter, Novel Consultant for the world renowned Truby Writers Studio (with many thousands of subscribers), speaker at conferences all over the country and at the UCLA Writers Program. I need an ebook cover for the first of my 6 books, which was originally published in hardback by Random House after winning the Pirates Alley Faulkner Prize. It has never been an ebook before. It will be sold everywhere, promoted heavily, and will be seen by major publishers bidding on my new non-fiction book proposal in November. I will refer the winning designer to my students, clients, and give credit on my website www.leslielehr.com. A new website is being designed now with a blue theme that will flatter this book.
What's your vision?
I need an ebook cover for 66 Laps, a novel that is in the category of literary fiction as well as commercial/contemporary fiction. When a new mother suspects her husband is having an affair, her insecurity about aging and identity lead her to an infidelity of her own and tragedy ensues. She swims to think. They are in the film business, real people behind the glamour but the culture of beauty and youth loom large The story is about love and loss, seduction and betrayal, jealousy and suspicion... a young mother who makes a tragic mistake. The water is an antidote and the ending is hopeful. The original cover was not effective, but will still be displayed so it would be nice for the new cover to have a similar element, maybe water. (Other symbols in the story include a red bikini, a woman's sunglasses, but not necessary) Okay to put a small gold medal on it, since it is a prize-winner. I will attach the original cover. I will also attach another image for anyone to use, but no pressure. If you do use any stock image use, please be sure its inexpensive, thanks! My name is now: Leslie Lehr
The title must be Easy To Read and the image must catch a reader's eye in the SMALL thumbnail size on Amazon.com or on an iphone. The cover must look professional in case I want to do another paper printing at some point.
