I am a self-published author working on my first book. It is a fantasy fiction series for young and mature adults.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I am looking for a one-piece cover design for a 6X9 paperback book. Dimensions are 31.10cm + 1.282cm(spine) X 23.49cm. The file must be PDF, JPG, GIF or PNG.
The book is about a young male Remnant that has a light which enables him to communicate with all plants and animals in his world. His world is a little more primitive then ours.
The rulers of his world call themselves Elders. They too have powerful lights that have enabled them to take control but they are going to destroy their world. He is the only one that can stop them. But he can't do it alone. He will need to find someone from our world to help him.
I want a simple cover. The setting is rustic and is themed after my Native Ancestry. Willow trees are a very important symbol throughout the book and I was thinking of a black cover with a gold silhouette of a willow tree. I would like the title in, or coming from, the roots of the tree. I want the title (Ecliptic: Book 1) and author name (J.M Cleminson) on the spine as well. The back will have a description of the plot and my ISBN (attached file). I am not too sure what to do with the back cover, so be creative. I am a fan of celtic design but again simple - not busy.
This is the first book in a four part shadow series
Back Cover Description
Juma is a young Remnant growing up in a world that he knows is in trouble. A world with a lot of rules and hidden secrets, which his kind has accepted and suppressed over the generations because of fear. Fear that has been engrained, from the ones that they have now learned to respect; the Elders. But Juma is developing his light, trying his best to keep the Elders unaware of what he is, what he knows, and what he is destined to one day do.
He is forced to confront the inevitable, when events out of his control, begin to unravel. He will need to enlist the help from his friends, who may harbor their own secrets, and find a way to stop the destruction of his world.
Along his journey more truths are revealed and those he feared, become more trustworthy than those he loves. He finds out the hard way that some secrets are best left in the past.
