I would like a book cover designed for print which includes the front and back cover, and spine.
I would like to use the front cover of the design for the e-book.
The trim size of the print book is 5.25 x 8 inches with 240 pages and it will need to accord with the Createspace specifications.
I am looking for a fun, eye-catching, girly/teenage bright colour scheme, with modern fonts that would appeal to pre-teen and teenage girls in a chick-lit genre.
Perhaps a cartoon/fashion illustration of the main character in mid-stride with the Blue mosque in the background (see description of main character above).
The character does not necessarily have to be on the cover, but I'd like the cover to convey, travel to Istanbul, excitement, fashion, and a bit of a mystery to solve.
I'm thinking bright 'girly' colours or vibrant pastels.
The title of the novel is Ayesha Dean: The Istanbul Intrigue. I envisage this being a series so the series will be called Ayesha Dean, whereas the name of this story is The Istanbul Intrigue.
Author's name is Melati Lum.
Publisher is Melby Rose Publishing (no set logo).
I have rights to use the font "Mixed Stripe" which I like for the "Ayesha Dean" portion of the title and the Author name, however I am happy for other fonts to be used if it fits better with the design.
The blurb on the back cover will be the following:
Travel, Adventure, Friends, and Food!
Ayesha and her friends Sara and Jess jump at the chance of accompanying Ayesha's uncle on a trip from Australia to Istanbul. But when Ayesha discovers a mysterious note as a result of visiting an old bookshop, their relaxing holiday starts to get a whole lot more complicated! Ayesha finds herself trying to uncover a hundred-year-old Ibn Arabi mystery, while trying to avoid creepy villains, and still making sure that she gets to eat the best doner kebab Istanbul has to offer. It's all in a day's sleuthing when you're Ayesha Dean. Lucky she can count on her best friends to always have her back!
