I would like a book cover for my novel Oranges for Christmas.
The novel is set in Berlin in 1961 at the time of the building of the Berlin Wall. It concerns a family separated by the Wall. There are two points of view. 17 year old Sabine lives in East Berlin and her 20 year old brother Dieter lives in West Berlin.
Sabine gets arrested by the East German Stasi (secret police.) Dieter joins a group of people digging a tunnel from West to East Berlin to try and get their family members out of East Berlin.
The story switches back and forth between Sabine in the East and Dieter in the West so it would be good if the cover could suggest the two halves of the city. There also needs to be a sense of danger because the Wall was guarded by armed border guards who operated a shoot to kill policy for anyone trying to escape to West Berlin. At one point in the novel a young man is shot trying to climb over the wall. But there should also be a sense of hope because the novel is ultimately about the characters' determination to be free.
The novel is fairly literary in style but also quite fast-paced, almost thriller-like. The cover needs to appeal to teenagers as well as adults.
In 1961 the Berlin Wall did not look like it did by the time of its fall in 1989. It consisted of large blocks and was topped with barbed wire - see image below. Life in East Berlin was grey and restricted. Life in West Berlin would have been livelier, although it's still only 1961 so not that long after the war.
I need a paperback cover, an ebook front cover and, if possible, a square cover for a future audio book.
The paperback version is published through Createspace and the dimensions are 5.06" x 7.81". The number of pages in the paperback version is 308 and the interior is printed on white paper. The paperback cover needs to be at least 300dpi.
The ebook cover will be the same as the front of the paperback.
The audiobook cover, if included, should be 2400x2400 pixels at 300dpi.
