Book title: Firefly
Author: Malcolm Harding
The novel is to be distributed initially as an E-book and I am looking for a simple cover that grabs attention and provokes curiosity.
Synopsis: The book opens with the central character traveling home from work in central London to his flat in Kentish Town - in the rain. A typical grim urban mix of work and commuting. Salvation comes in the form of an unusual bequest from a great aunt, who leaves an old fishing boat, moored in Barbados.
The majority of the novel is based in Barbados and the story revolves around a sunken ship (18th century) and a mysterious hidden treasure which dates back to Britain’s colonial past - sugar plantations and slavery.
Description: Although the word Firefly does ultimately have an importance it is not central to the story line. I would like the word to capture the attention of readers and the background to convey either the storyline, the beautiful setting or a combination of both.That said, having given quite a bit of detail on the storyline I would prefer designers to feel free to be creative.
Only the novel title and author’s name are required to be on the cover.The novel is essentially a modern day treasure hunt set in a beautiful Caribbean location. It is aimed towards both sexes and contains history with travel and romance.
