Sub-Title: A Mystery Thriller
By: Paul J. Heald
Back Logline: Sequel to Death In Eden
Size covers (front and rear): 5.5” x 8.25"
Spine = .75”
Bleed elements must extend beyond the document size (final trim) by 0.125" on all 4 sides
On Spine: allow room for publisher’s logo 1” from bottom
On back cover: [allow for 250 words + allow for portrait author + bio 75 words
Please design as one cover, then on approval, I will need a separate psd for each:
1. the front cover with all fonts,
2. a copy of the spine with all fonts, and
3. a copy of the back cover (no text except for back logline).
All these separate elements are needed to complete the InDesign final files and allow for adjustments later please. However, if the front image wraps around to the back, that is fine, it can be one image (one psd) for the front, spine and back.

Stanley Hopkins cannot resist the invitation from a honey-voiced U.S. attorney asking him to track down the source of photographs of a young dance major abducted five years earlier from her apartment in Clarkeston, Georgia. A journalist has stumbled across newly posted pictures of Diana Cavendish on the internet, apparently taken just days before she disappeared with her boyfriend. While Stanley deals with vexing personal problems and scrambles to identify the owner of the web site who acquired the photos, small-town journalist James Murphy and federal prosecutor Melanie Wilkerson uncover new evidence of the crime--and cover-up--that ranges far beyond the confines of the victim’s quaint Georgia college town.
Government subsidies, bribery and corruption, for cotton farmers is at the center of the plot.
The second installment of the Clarkeston Chronicles presents new challenges for Hopkins that take him far from the California base he established in Death in Eden (2014) and introduce him to a fascinating group of collaborators who will keep him anchored for a while in small town Georgia.
