Descripción del libro
Hector Hargrove and his partner, Detective Keith Coleman, pursue a serial killer as he preys on victims throughout the state of California.
I like the boldness of it, the slightly warped perspective. I don't like the font, it's too whimsical.
I like the gradients. The font is too retro and the figures are too abstract.
I think I like this one because of the simplicity and similarity to my first book's cover.

Necesidades de diseño
I want something which is similar to the first novel (which is included in the additional files below), thematically, but more polished. I liked the font for the first book's cover, plus the simplicity/retro feel, but I'd like this one to be more professional looking. The novel spans the west coast from San Diego to Canada, and one of the common threads is that this killer dumps his victims in water, so water of some sort needs to be present on the cover. A pacific coast vibe would be good too, since a good portion of the book takes place in Los Angeles. A palm tree like on the first book's cover would be nice. I like the idea of west coast sunset colors, like the first book. The Mulholland Dam in LA is where another pivotal scene takes place, so you could implement that. The overall mood should be retro Californian. Think Hotel California album cover by the Eagles. Also I've attached a copy of the first book cover.
Lo que debe evitarse
Pictures which show a face. I don't want my readers to associate my characters with some stock photography model.
