What's your vision?
I need a cover for my supernatural novel. The title is 'Dark is the Sea' and the author name is Heather Blanchard. The female protagonist is 18 years old, slim and has pale skin and long black hair. She has one green eye and one blue. She learns that she is a witch. The novel has a gothic mood and has elements of fairytale and horror. There is witchcraft, shadow ghosts in mirrors and mermaids in the story. This is the jacket blurb: Haunted by the mystery of her mother's disappearance and plagued by paranoia and nightmares, Rowan Munro abandons London for Dorchay, the remote Scottish village where she spent her childhood. With the help of her eccentric aunt and a familiar face from her past, she unlocks a power in her that is at once terrifying yet curiously addictive. As she uncovers the deep buried secrets of her family, she accidentally awakens something only imaginable in her worst nightmares and must question the trust of those closest to her. Now Rowan will have to harness the magic she has inherited in order to survive. Requirements: Should be suitable for Kindle Direct Publishing format Final artwork to be supplied as layered 300ppi Photoshop or Illustrator file with all text either rasterised or converted to outlines Cover artwork to be laid out as a flat printers spread (back cover - spine - front cover) with a 14mm spine Book size to be B6 Artwork to include a minimum 3mm bleed
I have included some images which are similar to the 'look' I would like for my cover, e.g. moody, atmospheric. I am currently awaiting an ISBN number which I will add as soon as I know.
