This is a pinterest page I set up with some inspiration/instruction for the cover. https://www.pinterest.com/dbrodsky3…ook-cover/
Here are the notes to explain how these can be applied to my project:
RE Lolita cover: Can be: I did not kill my father I did not kill my father I did not kill my father
Fire cover: I like the image like that, perhaps title in the flame?
Love me back cover: since the main character is writing a column called “The Velvet Rope Diaries” about chic bars, perhaps the title lettering can look like a bar/nightclub sign?
Catcher in the rye cover: I like the idea of instead of the rye fields, perhaps it’s flames? And she’s looking down on life below?
Also, this is a romantic comedy/chick lit book, and so I realize it must reflect not just my tastes, but what is working for that genre right now, so please incorporate some of the stylistic detail for these best-sellers, such as font, color, layout, etc. Here is a link to those best sellers:
Please, though, no cartoon-y drawings that can be mistaken for kid's books; more edgy, cool, with a bit of light-hearted tinge.
Not too much text as this will need to be read on amazon and itunes and b&n online mobile shop applications as well as on the kindle reader entrance to kindle shop. I will also be using this design for print and audio versions of the book. Please contact me for book description text and editorial quotes that will go on the book's back cover.
