Corporal Justice and the Planet of the Seductress Snake-Woman: An Erotic Space Adventure
I write thematically emotional and passionate love, with just a pinch of humor and a grain of sci-fi.
An erotic romp between a spaceman and an alien snake-woman, including emotion, consent, and an actual frame of story and emotion
adults, female or male, most likely heterosexual
something simple that gets the message across very clearly that this is an erotic story, somewhat playful, with sci-fi and alien elements. Square-jawed space pilot meets alien women and loves them, including consent and respect. Perhaps a snake tail somewhere, a ray gun or space helmet, ship, and planet. Know that the snake-woman does have a woman's upper-body, but covered with scales, and has fangs. Her color is up to you, as she has chameleon abilities. One idea: maybe the snake woman looking menacing from behind with some side-boob, and the space-man backed up against a wall, perhaps with space-suit shirt open, and his ray gun on the cave floor or something. A simpler idea: title at the top, in the middle an arm holding a ray gun that's coiled in a snake tail, and the author name at the bottom. My thoughts are more symbolic and cartoonish than stock-photo-realistic, but I'm open to a good idea when I see one.
What to avoid
no pornography directly on the cover, no female nipples (american censor friendly). A certain degree of uncomfortableness is fine, but there should be no implications of rape.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
JonathanSmall collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
