Sells novels that I write.
What's your vision?
Book cover (front, spine and back) for my novel MR. COPACABANA, based on my father who created the famous nightclub in the 1940's and was involuntarily partnered with Frank Costello, the head of the Mafia in New York. I want something that looks modern, not 1940's, but uses elements of the iconic Copa design of lady with fruit-laden turban (see attached proposal). Back cover should be laid out for quotes of readers recommending the book, and a short mention of the author's credits.
Book cover must have space reserved for all necessary publishing elements such bar code ISBN number, publishers' logo. Author's Name Jim Proser Synopsis The book is titled "Mr. Copacabana" and is the life story of my father who created the famous nightclub in the 1940's and was involuntarily the partner of Frank Costello, the head of the Mafia. They had a 30 year partnership that spanned New York, Los Angeles and Las Vegas.
