¿Qué te inspira y qué diseño imaginas para tu empresa?
Book cover for my new novel "Valdamar" which should evoke the period
in which it takes place and potentially references the themes of
the novel. Without limiting design inspiration, this might include
reinterpreted old photos from the period? The book is likely to be
mostly sold as an e-book but I would like to anticipate a design for a
print book as well and have uploaded a create space template as a
guide for this. I have also added some draft synopsis text for the
The book is an historical novel set in Sydney, Australia between 1893
and 1900. It is the first in what will be a series of connected
novels. The main character in "Valdamar" (Book 1) is is Mary
Cavendish. The novel looks at such issues as the suffragette movement,
women's rights, discrimination, homosexuality and the "new nation" as
Australia is becomes a nation in its own right. After the death of her
father Mary inherits a house in Manly (a beach side location where
Sydney people of that era would take their holidays) but not until
there is a dispute with her brother over the estate. Mary becomes
involved in the suffragette movement and meets Valda Harris. Mary
begins to acknowledge her sexuality and they slowly develop a lesbian
relationship. Distanced from the family because of brothers attitude
towards her, and with no income, she decides to live in the house at
Manly (a large Victorian House) turning it into a boarding house and
refuge for women and other people that "polite society" has rejected.
They decide to call the house "Valdamar" (combining Valda and Mary).
The book is about people but it is also about what the house
"Valdamar" becomes to represent as a place of refuge where people are
safe and accepted.
