**Target audience is 13-adult and will contain some mature themes. Think 'Call of Duty meets Avengers'.**
Paperback and eBook Cover for a 'choose your own adventure' style Superhero book.
Title: The Freak Show
Subheading: You take control of the mission!
Subheading: an Uberworld Interactive Reading Experience (this might not be needed on cover - might not fit with design)
Author: Ben Langdon
Readers take control of the story as one of two characters:
1. Ghost: a young Australian man who can control electromagnetic fields such as light and magnetism. He uses it to help him be a covert mercenary.
2. Pride: a young Indonesian woman who can create duplicates of herself, which makes her a powerful team of fighters all by herself.
Both of these characters should appear on the cover, preferably back to back suggesting that they are both equally powerful and good reader choices. I want to appeal to male and female readers.
The readers will most likely be fans of computer games like Call of Duty as well as fans of comic books or TV/Film.
Storyline: Basically, this adventure is an introduction. The two characters are rookies, brought into an organisation called The Freak Show which is like a superhero squad for the CIA etc.
The mission will be to infiltrate a supervillain's headquarters, locate stolen missiles and neutralize the threat. The story takes place in Europe and the Western Africa. The cover could incorporate images such as:
- an underground military installation (metal walls, etc)
- a busy city scene
- a windswept desert
- or something else.
There should be a strong sense of adventure and a call for the reader to pick up and the book and start reading right there!
I will send the brief blurb at a later point, which will only be required for the back of the paperback book.
