What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
The book is a romance between two men and it's set in 1933 in New York.
It is not erotica, so I don't want naked bodies on the cover. It's a quiet romance and I'd like a quiet cover with an atmospheric sense of the time period and the setting. Please note: I do not want a cartoon or hand-drawn cover. I would prefer a realistic look (but not too gritty, as the story has a sort of fairytale quality, despite the era.)
The only text on the cover should be the title: If It Ain't Love
And the author name: Tamara Allen
The book is currently free on Amazon and has a cover, but it's a very bland cover that I made, myself. I'd like something a little more eye-catching, but still subtle, if possible.
Two things: Blue jeans on characters feel too modern (though jeans were worn in the period.) If you can evoke a feel for 1933, that's what I'm looking for.If you want to try to include character images on the cover, please get as close to this description as you can: two males, mid to late twenties, one brown-haired, one dark blond. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
