Update: Less literal and more abstract is preferred. Bold colors and fonts. Greek design elements. No white backgrounds.
Helene is a supernatural ghost story with a lot of meticulously researched Greek mythology, some romance, and some gore that pushes it toward horror. I'm looking for a big visual impact with bold colors that might incorporate some of the more important elements of the story (the statue of Agias, the tetradrachm coin). Agias character is based on an actual Greek statue in Delphi - I've included photos I own the copyright for that you're free to use.
However, I'm totally open to none of those things being used if you have an awesome idea after reading the book description/synopsis. It can go abstract. A little sensuality thrown in is cool, but if you use images of people please avoid showing faces.
Important locations in the story:
-Temple of Apollo in Delphi, Greece.
-Cambridge, MA near the Charles River
-River with large moss covered boulders in a dense forest
The typesetting and graphics for the chapters is already done. I'll include an example of that, as well as the stock photo used to create them. Castellar was the font used.
If you end up using my headshot, please convert it to black & white. Also I'd like to have the original files in case I need to make changes to text later.
