The dominant image on this cover should be a beautiful golden leaf falling at night. I want it to be a simple symbol for that magical feeling of first falling in love. It should bring to mine one of the sexier scenes in the book where my protagonists take a tumble in the leaves after an impulsive chase through the woods at night (chapter sample attached) It should also bring to mine one of the more romantic scenes where they are dancing under the stars, surrounded by a forest covered in golden white Christmas lights. It should do all that and still be just a pretty gold leaf.
Here are some more specifics:
Leaf color: yellow gold, whiter gold or almost moonlike in color, or gold with a slight hint of brown
Leaf shape: feathery/curvy like an Oak leaf (or more almond shaped like an Alder leaf, but should resemble a species native to Northern California)
Leaf pattern: This is where I would like to see some experimenting. Leaf lines could be realistic: sharp, veiny and natural looking. Or, the patterning on the leaf could be a bit more abstract. My female protagonist is an artist, and Kory is often whipping out a Sharpie and a leaf of notebook paper to doodle all kinds of stuff, everything from swirls and intricate patterns with numbers and hidden symbols, to her favorite comic book characters) An abstract design for the leaf pattern does intrigue me, but also sounds a lot more challenging to pull off.
Other images/colors around the leaf: there could be a subtle spray of gold flecks around the leaf, kind of like magic dust, starlight, or those Christmas lights I mentioned earlier. The rest of the background should be black so the gold really pops. Only other color I am interested in would be teal. Work it in somehow and I will be happy. Maybe for the title.
Font Style: Something pretty but easy to read. The title Browning’s Crossing could get lost in a really elaborate script .
Lo que debe evitarse
Adding red and/or an apple. I don’t need this looking like Twilight.
If the leaf resembles marijuana, that would be an epic fail.
Avoid one leaf turning into a pile of leaves with a couple of half naked teenagers rolling around in the middle. I’d like the cover to keep some things up to the imagination even if the story does not.
Cute, cartoony, juvenile looking. This book may be about teenagers but it should not be marketed like some young adult cuddle fest.
