Entertainment & The Arts
Hello Designers! I am looking for a short story cover. It falls under the literary genre. My future readers are American females, ages 24 to 50 who love to leisurely read both Women’s Fiction and Romance. They are middle class, and married with kids, or planning that in their future, as they value family. These women value other women in power, as that is a source of inspiration, and love to read about survivors of all forms of abuse, who in the end, come out on top. They also love a little spice in their life, and have a great sense of humor.
What's your vision?
This short story is about an eleven year old who is placed on the streets in Las Vegas by her parents after she gets her first monthly time. Apparently that makes her a women now and she is old enough to make her own money by joining the family business. Her father a pimp, and her mother, his main girl, Emma knows her family is not "normal." In her case, like any caged animal, she will claw and fight her way out to survive. Her hope of belonging to someone, of being loved, of finding a real family will cause her to fight for what she wants. The thing is, Emma is not the only one who longs for a better family situation and the person she meets on the way will help them both get their wish. You don't have to use any of this extra information. Emma is emaciated, but beautiful. Her hair black, and eyes green. At some point Emma notices a a daisy that grows in the cracks of the sidewalk, and wonders how something so beautiful, colorful, fragile even, could grow out from something bland, hard, and lifeless. The person who ends up saving her is a cop, one who works in Vice. Lt. Rycroft and his wife have just spent their life savings for in vitro to only fail. Their dreams of a family, all but gone until...Emma.
Since this is just a short story, I don't need a back cover. I don't need to include a formal synopsis. It just needs to be cover, title and my name. This is going to be a Kindle, Create Space download. Thanks.

Estella is both a great designer and a lovely person. I received a large number of responses to my contest (130+) but her designs stood out from all the rest. She provided several very different options all of which spoke to me in different ways. In the end, she kept improvising until we arrived at something that I absolutely loved. This was my first contest and she was very patient as she coached me along through the process. Couldn't have wished for a better experience on 99designs in large part thanks to her.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
