Plot description (should NOT be printed on the back of the book):
The book we need a cover for is a novel placed in a fictional ancient world. It is the story of Liria, a novice in a temple in a city that resembles ancient Athens. Amidst a raid in the city by a desert tribe on horsebacks, Liria is captured and kidnapped by their leader, Thrakon. She is brought to the tribe’s village, which is hidden in a vale. After being treated like a prisoner in the beginning, she accustoms to the tribe’s way of living and Thrakon and her begin an erotic and romantic relationship. The book is volume 1 of 3 and therefore we are interested in a long term business relationship.
Main characters: Liria is 19 years old, has wavy blonde hair, a fair complexion and blue eyes “like the sea”. She is very beautiful, yet still a virgin due to her religious beliefs. In the beginning of the story, she wears a long, white novice dress.
Thrakon is a tall and muscular warrior of 27 years, has bronze skin, black hair and a short trimmed beard. His back is scarred from whiplashes, as he used to be a slave and there are seven branding marks (scars) on his torso, that have a certain meaning. His tribe uses battle-axes and bows for warfare. Thrakon rides a huge black mare into battle. The tribe’s village consist of small cottages made of loam.

Perfect colours, a real eye-catcher, also very romantic - but my cover should be more mystical (maybe the font is too modern?)
I like the sinister, erotic touch of this one, also great colours - but my cover should somehow fit the genre "romantic fantasy".
Interesting font, fine colours and "fantasy touch"!
Wonderful colour contrast, simple but beautiful design, could be a bit more romantic and less "girly".
Nice colours, very romantic, the font could be a bit more modern. One of the most fitting examples!
Great colours and background, fits the genre (fantasy), I'm just missing a certain romantic touch and I do prefer if the face is not fully visible.

It would be great if you could use the colour gold to symbolize the desert (the sun, the sand ...). Please take a look at the cover examples enclosed!
The second volume of the series will be called "Wie das Leuchten des Meeres" ("Like the Glow of the Sea") and could be blue, the third volume will be called "Wie Blut im Sand" ("Like Blood in the Sand") and could have red as dominant colour.

It is an adventurous, erotic and bittersweet love story, inspired by the story of Daenerys Targaryen and Khal Drogo of "Game of Thrones". The cover should not look cheap or kinky (it is no “bodice-ripper”), but it should also not look like an epic fantasy novel’s cover – please keep in mind that the story is very romantic! Maybe you can capture the atmosphere of the desert, using warm and golden colours or colours of the sunset.
Lo que debe evitarse
Faces should not be too dominant, so the reader is not pushed to picture the characters with a certain look. Please show only parts of faces, only the silhouette or from far away.
And PLEASE don't copy from each other - take a look at my cover examples, they all look different and I like all of them. If I give someone a high rating, that does NOT imply I only like his or her idea.
