Eye-catching Young Adult Cover
Need a paranormal young adult cover, both ebook and print. I need Photoshop files with all layers intact and unlocked, including adjustment layers and editable Type layers. All images should have a minimum resolution of 300 DPI. I want links to any stock used as I plan to purchase a license to use in other promotional materials. The title and author name must be visible in thumbnail
BOOK TITLE: Unreality
AUTHOR NAME: Ingrid Seymour
SIZE: The books will be 6"x9". The spine's width should be 1.2875"
SPINE: Must include the PenDreams logo at the bottom (will attach eps files soon)
CHARACTER: 18-year-old girl. Red, curly, bushy hair. Freckles. Green eyes.
POSSIBLE SETTINGS: beach, forest, cliff, school front.
The girl wears a bluebird bracelet. She loves to hang glide off the cliffs of the San Francisco west coast. She has a psychic power that allows her to see things that have happened in a place when she touches objects. She sees a multitude of people from different pasts. She goes to Berkeley High School.
ONE CONCEPT: I have an idea of a cover with the background of a beach. The beach is upside down (clouds at the bottom, sand at the top) The girl faces the beach, so we see her from the back. She has one hand up—about face level—and wears the bluebird bracelet. The arm and hand look blurry, repeated, like sample picture of man running (She is not upside down.) The beach is darker and monochromatic (blues and purples work well.) Her red hair and bluebird provide the color. The title is in a striking font with “UN” in a different color and “reality” following right after. There is a glowing effect (very popular at the moment)
OTHER CONCEPTS: I am opened to other concepts that make use of your design skills to sell me an eye-catching cover. In the past, I have selected both covers that adhered to my concept and covers that didn’t. I will simply select the most striking cover that uses the elements described.
I provide feedback and use the stars to mark my favorites. I've attached a few sample covers. I can get stock images from DepositPhotos if needed.
