I am looking for a quirky, funny and perhaps cartoon orientated book cover for my book: "The Soaring Kiwi and the Sauerkraut". There will be both an eBook AND a printed book version of my book available, so please consider both sorts when designing the cover.
The Soaring Kiwi and the Sauerkraut is the humorous account of Phil Southward, a hang gliding New Zealander who makes the mistake of marrying a grumpy German and moving within 500, too close for comfort, kilometres of his in-laws, to Munich, the German city of Lederhosen and that celebration of big beer, the Oktoberfest. A big life style change for the kiwi that is commonly known around the world as:
a) a small brown furry fruit
b) a brand of shoe polish
c) a motorcycle helmet.
but is in fact a small brown, nocturnal, flightless bird, unique to New Zealand. Somewhere back in the low level mist of time that is New Zealand history, New Zealanders, lacking other fierce wildlife, decided it would be a good thing to be named after something brave enough to wander alone in the bush at night.
From reliving every teenage petrol head’s wet dream of driving at more than 200km/h, legally, experiencing the destruction of manhood when being overtaken at said speed by a chick in a Mini, inadvertently asking his German teacher if she is horny, to attempting to become a hang glider competition champion without the slightest bit of natural talent, Phil manages to find humour in almost everything, including, and especially, himself.
