I am a first time chick-lit author.
What's your vision?
I am looking for a book cover design for my first novel, Elly in Bloom. Elly in Bloom is a chick-lit book about a chubby high-end wedding florist who lives in St. Louis. It's witty, smart and funny and very fun, with a lesson about overcoming your past and embracing your future. I have attached a query letter here which sums up the plot. (Think Bridget Jones Diary or Good in Bed.) What am I looking for? GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF WORK: Book cover for eBook to be published on Amazon, Kindle, e-books and paperback trade fiction. REQUIRED COVER TEXT: Title: Elly in Bloom Author: Colleen Oakes -I am looking for a book cover (PDF file I believe?) that will confirm to Amazon's Create Space publishing requirements (https://www.createspace.com/Services/SupportedCoverPDF.jsp) -I am looking for a book cover that has bright and pretty colors. -I am looking for a book cover that will draw the eye of all women, young and old and will stand out on Amazon as a thumbnail. - I am looking for a book cover that features flowers in some way, whether they are the main star of the cover or integrated in some other way. However, it must have flowers somewhere on it, and I'm very picky about what kind of flowers since my main heroine is a wedding florist. I've attached a document here that has the types of flowers I would like featured and a few book covers that I love. - In my mind, I see a white book cover with bright coral peonies, but I am not tied to that. I believe in your creativity!!! Elly in Bloom is the first of three books, and my hope is that each book will feature one different type of flower on the cover. For instance: the first book Elly in Bloom will have peonies or ranunculus, Elly in Love will have orchids, etc.... - If I am happy with the designer, I will certainly be using them for all three books. -I tend to lean more towards photographic covers than illustrated covers (or cartoons) that seem to be popular for chick lit. -I have need the back book cover blurb to be included on the book. I've attached it here. - I love whimsical, pretty things, but mostly I am looking for a book with a strong impact that makes a woman say "Oh, this is fun!"
I am just looking for a cover that really conveys the idea of the book: Fun, flower-oriented, a book that a woman would say "Oohh..pretty! That looks fun!" and picks it up. I do not want it to look like a self-published book with a generic cover. Thank you so much! Your creativity is so appreciated and I can't wait to see the designs! -Colleen (You can read my blog at The Ranunculus Adventures.)

Lan designed a book cover for my Chinese book about some sinologists. Our cooperation was very smooth, she modified the design several times on my request and also provided her opinions when she thought it's right. I'm very satisfied with her design. Definitely will hire her again!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
