Historical novel set in England during the "age of chivalry". BLURB -- Anno 1360 – Twelve-year-old Robin is reduced to the life of a stable hand when his father, the Earl of Waringham, is executed for treason. Subjected to the tyrannical whims of the new earl’s son Mortimer, Robin flees to the battlefields of the Hundred Years’ War. In the service of the charismatic Duke of Lancaster he rises to knighthood and fame. But Lady Fortune’s Wheel is spinning endlessly, and while the irresponsible young King Richard II. threatens to ruin the realm in the turmoil of war and Peasant’s Revolt, Robin risks losing everything he gained when he falls in love with Blanche, the wife of his lifelong foe Mortimer
I would like to commission a cover for an e-book edition of my historical novel „Fortune’s Wheel“. The book was originally published in German, and the cover I am looking for now is for the English translation edition. You can find the cover of the German edition here: https://www.amazon.de/Das-L%C3%A4cheln-Fortuna-Historischer-Waringham/dp/3404139178/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1504011775&sr=8-6&keywords=rebecca+gable The e-book cover I am commissioning can be similar but doesn’t need to be. The typeface used is lelf_noir_du_mal and I would prefer it be used for the new cover as well. If you decide to employ a medieval-style drawing it should depict or include the “Wheel of Fortune” which was omnipresent in medieval art. However, I would prefer not to pay for image rights. Recent covers of English language historical novels I find interesting and modern are for example “A Column of Fire” by Ken Follett or “Stormbird” by Conn Iggulden , but I am open to fresh ideas deviating from these or from my own traditional book designs. I do not, however, like photos of people in my covers.
