Hi there, I am a 38 years old independent author who comes from Germany. Up to now I have written poets and published two books. "Hinter den Felder" ("Behind the fields") will be my first children's novel.

Descripción del libro
"Hinter den Feldern" ("Behind the fields") is a coming-of-age novel: Ten year old Leon has many reasons to be upset: He's got asthma, a mother who knows more vetos then the school regulations, mean classmates, summer holidays - and no idea what to do with them all and himself. Fortunately, grandfather lives with them, he is Leon's best friend. He tells the best stories and teaches Leon everything about trees and plants and animals. When he tells Leon from the healing power of a magic flower, Leon is sure it grows somewhere behind the fields in the woods and he tries to find it. But it is no flower that's waiting for him behind the fields ...
"Behind the fields" is an exciting and heart-warming story about self-doubt, loss and acceptance, but above all a hymn to grandfathers! Recommended to all grandchildren from 9 to 99 years.
Público al que se apunta
The book is mostly for boys from the age 9-13, it's a coming-of-age story (with NO fantasy elements!), and is set in summer time in rural Germany; a little dramatic, a little funny, and most of all a hymn to grandpas!
Tipo de portada de libro
Tapa blanda o Paperback
I do not know the fileformat yet, but the size of the paperback will be 12 x 19 cm. The whole picture with backcover and spine (1,08cm) has to be 26.08 x 20 cm. I prefer public domain fonts.

Well, I need a cover for a coming-of-age novel, a story set in rural Germany in the 1980s during a boy's summer holidays. The boy's gonna experience an adventure that will change his life. So what should the cover contain? A boy, a field of rye, cornflowers, a tree swing, woods in the distance (and an old white half-timbered house nearby), blue skies, the smell of summer... All of this or only part of this or something totally different. I'm open to any ideas. There are so many ways to express these melancholic childhood feelings. I added a few pictures which style and colours I like. So, I think warm and strong colours would fit, the cover should be "painted" or "animated". Dreaming, longing, sighing, crying and smiling at the same time. This is the story about - this should be the cover about.
Lo que debe evitarse
Please no photos, especially no stock-pictures that have to be paid. Please no hills or mountains: the setting is plain rural land with fields and trees :-)
