Title: Weeping Water Author J.T. Ruby Genre: Suspense/Thriller 300-350 pages Weeping Water is a suspense/thriller that takes place in the not-too-distant future. The story is about Annie Ripley, a 27 year-old woman who is killed in an airplane crash. She remains in cryonic suspension for 40 years and once she awakens, she finds that all of her family and friends have died or abandoned her. The story unfolds as desperately searches for connections to her past. Along the way is a story of survival. Once Annie is brought back to life she is imprisoned in an asylum, escapes and then while evading authorities she travels across the country hiding, fighting for her freedom and searching for her long lost sister. Weeping Water refers to the name of the lakeside cottage where she grew up as a child. Throughout the story Annie is feeling isolated, alone and searching for a “home” – with no one to turn to and no one she can trust, at the end of the story she returns to Weeping Water as her last chance to connect with her past. The themes of the novel are: Isolation Loneliness Abandonment Cold
What's your vision?
I am looking for a stylized cover that conveys the feeling of something unsettling, loneliness, isolation, solitude - the idea that the main character is alone and searching for something. The cover design should be for e-book and print. As part of the delivery I would like the final Photoshop or In Design files so I can use the imagery for other marketing purposes. Please have the design stretch over to the back cover. I do not have the back cover text complete but there should be space left for it. In the book, Weeping Water is the name of a lakeside cottage that the main character visits throughout the story. It has special meaning to her as a child and she returns later in life trying to connect with her past. It is the one place in her life that she feels safe. I am open to ALL ideas! I have no pre-conceived ideas about what the cover should look like, so please use your experience and creativity. From a personal perspective I prefer books and album covers that are stylized, abstract and engaging. The overall tone of the cover should be unsettling and convey isolation, solitude, cold and the idea that the main character is searching for something. On the front cover I would like to see the following text: Weeping Water a novel J.T. Ruby
I recognize the importance of cover design and I will do my best to promote you as an artist along side my novel. The chosen designer will have their name and website printed on the inside cover page of the novel and also on my website (still under construction). I will also Tweet several times during the promotion of the book about the cover artist and their website. I currently have 1400+ followers. Finally I have included some of my favourite book covers that I have seen in the past few months as an attachment. I do NOT want to copy these in any way, only want to convey to you that stylistically I like the imagery, tone, text layout/font and creativity. I am available if you have ANY questions - you can reach me anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org
