Book cover for a riveting suspense/thriller/crime novel
Check out Brad.e.spencer's Book cover contest…
Entertainment & The Arts
A suspense/thriller/crime novel for men and women ages 18 and up.
What's your vision?
A front and back book cover in 5"x8" (12.7 cm x 20.32 cm) print format and for digital e-book. Book title: The Upshot. The book falls in the suspense/thriller/crime genre. Setting is mainly Arizona, there's plenty of mountain and desert scenes. I've included a generic preview cover of just a desert mountainside. I'd like to stick to the desert, mountainside look somehow. Book consists of three main characters. Two males, one female. All in their early 40s. The female is beautiful with blue eyes black-hair, and prominent tattoos. Her tattoos include two pistols pointing downward at the small of her back mentioned in the book. Not looking for anything borderline racy or salacious. It is a violent crime book, but it also has some endearing qualities in regards to friendship and loyalty. This is what I had in mind but I'm open to anything: An image looking at the backs of the three main characters atop a rock formation on a desert mountain, with, on the left, Sam McElroy's character with a .38 (a handgun) tucked into the waistband of his back. In the middle, Holly's character, with her jet-black hair tied with a white bow (that's another chapter name: Long white bow). And on the right the chiseled, muscled up J. Cuddy-character (he was briefly a Marine) with a camouflaged rifle over his shoulder (this is another prominent weapon in the story). All three holding hands. Sun-rising. If you have any questions along the way, please feel free to ask me! I'm excited to see what you all come up with. THANK YOU!
Backcover text should be easily readable, and contain story preview text as follows: As children, Sam McElroy, Holly Karlan, and Jimmer Cuddy were inseparable. Growing up on the same block, the trio became best friends. All three seemed on the cusp of bright futures. But their indelible bond unraveled after a tragic incident during their teen years. Forced to keep a secret that changes who they are, the friends travel down unintentional paths, riddled with guilt and shame. They are weakened emotionally by the tragic event of the past and conflicted about how to ultimately avenge it. Rory James is a lifelong acquaintance of the three friends who is on the verge of running a blossoming drug empire. He is the reason for the upending of their lives. His arrogance and his wealth cannot save him from his own sadistic behavior. In his debut novel, Brad Spencer evokes a hard-edged Elmore Leonard-style in his writing to produce a riveting and harrowing thriller complete with explosive action, a wickedly evil villain, and troubled but endearing heroes. Backcover should also contain the attached author headshot along with the about the author text: Brad Spencer spent more than twelve years as an editor/writer in the newspaper business before becoming an independent professional writer, journalist, and columnist. The Upshot is his first novel. For more information about his writing, visit BradSpencer.net Barcode/ISBN area 2"x 1.2" Spine width 0.5275 5"x8" (12.7 cm x 20.32 cm)
