Kingzapper has captured very nicely the tenor and the theme of the short story, with a cover that is dramatic and compelling.

We asked designers to help us make a beautiful countertop point of sale display. Eli came up with a very creative approach. More importantly, when we asked him to work with his idea, but change the imagery he was able to recreate an even nicer piece. Eli was easy to work with, easy to communicate with and very responsive.

The requirement is a cover for a short story that will be posted for sale on Amazon.com along with my other works. The story takes place in bed, after making love, in a hotel room in Manhattan, with an artist from Bullalo, New York, who is showing for the first time in New York City and a famous radical feminist, who has met him for the first time. The cover should be provocative, without being too risque for amazon. The story is attached in a pdf format. The cover will be attached to the short story and uploaded as a jpeg file. It will talk you less than an hour to read it. I have done this many times with success and I will comment as often as I can on most of the covers submitted.
The two people are a study in contrast. He is tall, powerfully built, with sandy blond hair. She is shorter, with dark curly hair that is somewhat unrully. She is looking down at him, lying on the pillow. Although her breasts are bare in the scene, they should not be visable -- just infered -- in the cover. This story is about art and modern life, and the descriptions might be offensive to some people. If they are, I apologize in advance.
