I have attached several cover ideas that you can work from:
Book Cover Ideas #1:
This book cover is based on an African-American female spy with supernatural abilities, her partner and romantic interest is a Caucasian male with abilities of his own.
I have attached an idea that I believe captures this the female character. She's beautiful, but deadly and should not be crossed. Please do not make an exact copy of the attached example as I do not wish to steal this artist's work. This is only an example to pattern my cover after. This is a paranormal book so I believe the background should be dark; like a dark alley, dungeon type place, dirty basement etc…
Idea: The protagonist is wrapped or tangled in caution tape. She is being dragged away by a huge menacing dark figure who is using the caution tape she'd wrapped in to drag or tie her up.
Idea: The protagonist is wrapped or tangled in caution tape. She is tied or taped to the wall, a chair, or the floor pointing a weapon at whoever's taken her or plans to torture her.
Please don't be afraid to be creative with the caution tape.
Words for Cover: Title: Smoke & Fire Book 1, Adult Paranormal Romance, Michele Wesley
Book Cover Ideas #2:
I have attached some ideas for the pose that I believe captures the main characters. The characters have a magnetic sexual and romantic chemistry, but are deadly, dangerous, spy types with supernatural abilities so they should have guns, knives, etc… The female can even have a knife strapped around her thigh. (Please, no dreadlocks for female hair, the character actually has shorter hair (a bob or cut pixie cut if possible.) Male character is (Caucasian) and hot and sexy. If shirtless, I prefer the male have a lot of kick-ass tattoos on his back. If he has on a shirt, some tattoos on his arms perhaps. I don't like full facial shots (due to keeping the reader's imagination), therefore I prefer their faced remain in profile. The male can have a gun in his hand as well. Work some flames and smoke or something that gives it a supernatural vibe into the background. Please don't be afraid to be creative with the background, character pose, etc... you can even show part of their faces at the top of the cover as long as there is sexy and weapons.
Book Cover Idea #3
I encourage cover artists to used their imaginations on this one. Here is a brief summary of the book. I'd like to see what you create.
Cheating death gave Sori the ability to switch off her emotions at will, making her the ultimate killing machine. Recruited into a top secret spy organization, she quickly becomes one of their best agents. An assignment leads her into a world of mayhem as she trails the deadliest criminal she's ever had to hunt. Forced to unleash her inner-monster, Sori realizes that her emotional switch is minor compared to the beast she keeps hidden within.
Agent Mycale Phillips' is new to the spy world, but his reputation is deadly. His attraction to Sori is instantaneous. As her new partner, he discovers that Sori leaves a trail of bodies no matter where she goes. Following Sori's lead spikes Mycale's body count, but he soon learns that a touch of evil is necessary for survival in a world of Smoke & Fire.
Will secret abilities they are determined to hide from each other be enough to pull them from the clutches of Death?
Artist: Thank you in advance for your time and hard work.
