A Book Cover for middle-grade fiction: “The Snowberry Files – Case I: The Hunt for the Mahogany Ship.
The book is an adventure/mystery novel for children aged 10-12.
The story is about to twelve-year olds (Annabelle Snowberry and her friend Jim) who follow a trail of clues to discover a legendary shipwreck in the dunes (a hundred metres or so from the water) on the coast near Warrnambool, Victoria, Australia. Of course, a very nasty adversary is hot on their heels, trying to beat them to the discovery.
The Mahogany Ship is actually a local myth in Victoria and most commonly believed (and portrayed in the book) to be a sixteenth-century Portuguese ship.
The book is intended to be the first in a series of “The Snowberry Files”. I would like all books of this potential series to have a common design element to make them recognisable, e.g. an image of a suspension file or manila folder. I'd like the words “The Snowberry Files” on the cover looking as if they were stamped on in red and the name of the current case maybe typed in Courier or similar. Please see the attached rather clumsy mock-ups as a starting point.
The first of the slides is probably my favourite. OR the whole book could be made to look like a manila folder.
There could be pictures relating to the story spilling out of the folder. Possible themes for the pictures in this story would be:
- An old ship (a 16th century Portuguese caravel) stranded and partially buried in the sand
- A ship's bell, corroded
- A snake (specifically an Eastern Brown Snake). Note that there are no vipers in Australia, therefore the snake should not have a viper head.
- A modern high-security key
- A piece of an old map or even just a kids' sketch map
- An old ship's compass
- Gold coins
Oh, and I guess my name should be on the cover somewhere.
The only thing I am definitely hooked on is a "file" theme with the words "The Snowberry Files" stamped in red on it that could be carried across as a logo to future books in a series. Other than that, go for it!
And it would of course be good to get the same cover for an e-book as well.
