Need a full book cover (front/back/spine) that will create lots of attention on the shelf and as a thumbnail on ebook for an erotic romance/suspense or “New Adult” novel.
Title of Book: Breaking Möbius
Author Name: T.R. Horne
Print book size: 6x9
Length: roughly 300 pages
Target Audience: 21-35 women (but some men too…so nothing too girlie)
About the Book: Follow three lives on a journey that shows how their pasts can affect their future…and how their decision affect each other. It’s a story of discovery, love (lost and gained), betrayal and revenge. The story involves two women and one man but I don’t want the cover to look even remotely close to a threesome, as that is not the connection between the characters.
Criteria: I would like the back to incorporate the front of the books design. Also, I like abstract, minimalist and striking (almost confusing) designs. The colors I like are blue, gold and red as an accent but I’m open to anything as long as it’s not dark. I want to portray the book as airy, mysterious and mythical (think smoky or hazy) but not dark and sinister. I would like to incorporate a Mobius strip but it's not required. Think less paper Mobius and more bracelet/metal style built in with a human aspect (lipstick stain, abstract of faces in the background). I also like the 3D style like a note taped to the book or a scratched out page where the title is. The challenging part will be incorporating a human edge without having “people” on the cover. If you must use a person, please try to have just the body (maybe a dancer or model). I will be using Lulu for print, so please use their parameters (although it’s pretty basic). (For ebook 1600x2400 pixels) I added covers that I like to spark some ideas. Please feel free to ask me anything!
