I am looking for an inspiring, eye-catching ebook cover for my debut novel - "GALEON": the story is about a young German woman coming of age (18 yrs old) living in Dresden, Germany during the height of the Third Reich - she is blonde hair, blue eyes an ideal model feminine Aryan - yet she hates the Nazis and everything they stand for and this leads her on an incredible adventure, which includes being on the run from the authorities to being hand-picked to be a high ranking SS officer's young mistress - through all this, her one great hope of helping her is her former school professor - a dapper young gentleman who always held great hopes for his young, promising pupil and at the same time is mysterious to all who know him and holds secrets of his own. The story takes place over the course of the war years and in this time the young teenager transforms into a radiant young woman. The main image that I want on the cover is the face of the main character and the sculpted figurehead of a ship (young maiden) - I have a crude sketch/design of my own (see attached) to give you an idea of what I would like it to look like - the young woman's face would resemble someone say like film star- Kirsten Dunst or Amanda Seyfried (Dunst looks more German) the sketch I have here as an example was hand-drawn by myself from a pic of Dunst, as I recall and then scanned into a doc and modified using filters - of course the young woman must have a hair style of the period (1930-1940 era) which I included in my sketch - if you can get this image close to what I have here - excellent - if not something close would work -- the figurehead of the ship (symbolic in the book's story) is the old-world ship's figurehead, usually crafted and sculpted from wood - of a young maiden, found on the front of old ships - the one I have here is only for reference - this part will need your artistic talents most - as my crude sketch is horrible - other images to add to the cover I am open to ideas - I envisioned perhaps a shadowed city skyline of 1930's Dresden and perhaps a Nazi swastika banner somewhere in the design (but less conspicuous) and I once thought of perhaps a small image of the professor included, perhaps holding or reading a book - his likeness to resemble say - Errol Flynn, Ray Milland type - as for color -- I am partial to light lavender and purple hues (a favorite color among females I have discovered) since this book's main target audience will be women - the cover can be variations of this color or if your artistic vision has a different take - by all means, I'm open to suggestions (I even considered the art to resemble the style famous on 1930's/1940's movie posters but perhaps that might be too busy-- the cover would of course include the title - GALEON -- and authors name - S.M. Dyer - as far as fonts - I am partial to caps, serif - Bernhard Modern is my favorite with appropriate leading and kerning for visual effect
I have been as detailed as possible - feel free to contact me for questions, ideas/suggestions - thank you - S.M. Dyer
Cover Design: Needs to be a JPEG file and at least 2500
pixels on the longest side with a height/weight ratio of 1.6
I'm looking for a designer who is an illustrator as well - good with drawing as I have future books which will require covers and prefer designs done by someone who welcomes the challenge and possesses artistic flexibility - a talented artist/illustrator - and particularly good at creating images from the 1930-1940 era - as my second and third book are both set in the same era
*Note: with future projects coming - I will consider upping the ante on the pay out for quality designs
