I have just finished a 73,000 word novel and I am self publishing. I need a paper back, front and back cover, 13 X20 cm. This book is entitled "The Expatriate's Wife". It's about a young Asian girl who married a Western man and how she had to adapt to the different cultures of the countries that she's been to, in order to fit in, and the price she has to pay.
I don't like cartoons or cartoon like drawings. I like a photo which I own and want this to be on the front page BUT the man's face must be changed. In terms of colours- orange, yellow or earthy tones are good. But I am not fussed. The author's name is Hery deHaan. I also don't mind good illustrations. The photo conveys a strong message of what the book is about, and hopefully is a good jumping off point for you to show me your creativity. Good Luck!
The genre of the book is general fiction aimed at women, in particular, Far Eastern women. The book takes the reader to many countries eg Abu Dhabi, an obscure English village, Amsterdam, Singapore , Jordan and the state of Virginia, America. As an example, I like Andrea Levy's 'Long Song'. At this stage, I am not sure if the title should be "An Expatriate's Wife" or "The Expatriate's Wife". This book is about identity , inter- racial relationships, betrayal, fortitude and starting over.
