14-18 year olds who are interested in dark fantasy. Mainly girls because the two main characters are girls.
Book cover type
I would like you to create the front, back and spine of a dark fantasy novel. The story is about twin sisters who have been gifted with supernatural powers and need to protect their town from goblins and vicious gangs. I'd like to see a silhouettes of a young girl on the cover, and dark stormy colours in the background that stretches from the front cover, over the spine and to the back cover. I'd like the font to be in a brighter colour and look like old fashioned handwriting. I want the mood of the front cover to be gloomy and dark and the style to be gothic and dramatic. However, I'd like to see what the designers come up with. Book size is: 5x8 inches.
What to avoid
No photos please I'd prefer it to be illustrated.
