We arrange to have authors' manuscripts prepared for self-publication. For this project, the target audience is 18-45-year-old readers of steampunk, fantasy, and historical fiction. The story is set mostly in Victorian London and involves an alien demonic creature.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We need a book cover designed for both ebook and print formats. The print book will be a 6x9 trade paperback, but we do not yet have a page count for spine width. The front cover will display the title "The Infernal Aether," and the author's name, "Peter Oxley" in a suitable font. We're looking for a steampunk feel (heavy on the steam, lighter on the punk!) that conveys action, mystery, suspense, and impending doom. One idea we have for the artwork would be adapted from a scene in the novel and would depict three rather dapper gentlemen approaching London's Royal Observatory near dusk as a demonic (not satanic) entity is making its presence known (as noted in the comments, this scene may be a bit too much to depict on a book cover).
A rough version of the original manuscript is available online at http://www.wattpad.com/story/6709337-the-infernal-aether-first-draft There is also a book trailer at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ANKlWgzYOvU which might help in understanding the FEEL we are after. The attached file is a very early cover which also conveys some of the misty, old world feel we are shooting for.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Fictivity Press collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.

Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
