Book Cover - "The Future Unborn" for new novel about teen pregnancy.
Deliverables: Kindle cover, CreateSpace (paperback format), and Web thumbnails. Specifications included in attachment.
Can you create illustration or original design elements in a week? That's what I'd love to see for this cover. No stock elements. Examples of covers that I like:
• Paper Towns by John Green
• All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven
• Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Saenz
• Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
• The Truth about Alice by Jennifer Mathieu
• Willow by Julia Hoban
• A really good book about teen pregnancy with nice cover: “After” by Amy Efaw.
Book jacket blurb:
Acceptance into MIT means everything to Kansas Jones, a straight-A student, class president, top female swimmer on the varsity team, and member of the local teen robotics club. Her high school résumé is immaculate. Getting pregnant at eighteen is unthinkable.
Then the unthinkable happens.
Twelve weeks seems like plenty of time to take care of the situation. She knows what to do. It’s just that she has to take SATs first… and study for finals for the grading period… and prepare for her local MIT interview. Her Early Action college application is due. The team is pushing hard to finish their robot in time for the R2-RoboCon competition in December. An abortion requires money and time to plan, and she doesn’t have either.
When a close family member loses a child, Kansas sees how she could fix everything, but it might cost her MIT and all her dreams for the future. Is she willing to carry this unwanted pregnancy to term? Will she be able to give the baby away?
