I need a book cover/wrap for the first book in a 5 novel series. I have released this book under another cover, which I like, but hope to get something much grander! I will attach the first book cover and the second one as I had planned to use. As a member of Author Academy Elite I am pleased with the other authors book cover as designed by 99 through the contest and am hoping for great results. It is important for "branding" that I use specific elements, but I am looking for creativity. The series covers must "flow" as in the Twilight and Fifty Shades of Grey novels. It is important that the word "angels" in the title indicates a "Godly angel" not a name for a human, the color purple is in the title and author name as it is important to the history of the main ancient heroine of the book. Each novel is about a "modern day heroine" beginning in 1960 and evolving through 5 books into 2060. It is important to note the title of the "future' books as the book design for the first book will need to determine the "Look" for the future books. I like the back of the book, but it is hard to read and need that taken into consideration also. Images - Book 1 current I want to redo, picture with Bible, high heel, gun and angel wing. Book 2 for future info, artist rendering of Book 2 subtitle Lu's Liberation - all future books will have heroines name and point of purpose as subtitles- 3 Liddi's Labyrinth 4 Jess's Justice 5 Rachaels Revolution Also picture of website fan page and business card currently used - girl with angel shadow wings and book
As purple in title and author name is important, I like the white background as I think it will stand out well on book shelf and I like the black and white effect with the purple, and think a photograph of the items on the cover rather than a sketch could be exciting.
I have also attached book covers that I like! Another thought was the image of a girl holding a gun in one hand and a bible in the other, like the girl in the red dress, or a girl with her eyes showing and gun and bible held up or a girl with bible and gun behind her back, total body image from back with high heels on, lights from sky with angel wings in distance?
The tag line on back of book is "Extinction of the female gender is not an option" Readers will find out what that means by the end of the 5 book series as heroines fight crimes against women and children.
Important note: Lu has bright sea blue, aqua eyes and long auburn hair, full Farah Fawcett from the 70's look if you do a face
