Art & Design
I'm an Indie Young Adult Urban Fantasy author. Target audience are fans of things such as Buffy and Supernatural. Ages 16++
What's your vision?
I need a print cover designed for Book 6 in a series. It is a YA Urban fantasy series that plays homage to Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Mixes drama, action and comedy. This book features 2 heroines. One lives in our world, and her other half lives in a world based on comic books and day dreams. They are different sides of the same coin. The 'slayer' lives in the comic book world and is a tongue in cheek reference to comic book heroines. She fights villains, silent mimes, and Chicago style gangsters on a regular basis. The hero in the real world is a paladin. A quiet, reflective brunette leader who is succumbing to the pressure of living in a town being torn apart by time lines, parallel words converging in her town. Enemies become hero, those long lost in the fight against evil never died, and no one can tell fact from fiction. TITLE: Resolve SUB: Book 6 AUTHOR: Jill Cooper Trim Size: 5.25 X 8 (CreateSpace) DESIGN ELEMENTS: Story takes place in Vermont (Rutland, VT) So some sort of woodsy background, small town feel, or bubbling brook, with some police do not cross tape would work. A young woman on the cover . The heroine feels like everything is coming undone and she feels trapped in her role as leader rather than warrior. So a design element that represents that would be great. Bound arms. A gag. Something tugging upon her, or her clothes. Or something you come up completely on your own. BOOK BLURB It's all come to this. This moment in time. Everything Natalie Johnson has fought for. Newly promoted paladin commander Natalie Johnson is about to bring the demonire tracking system online. If she's successful Meadow's Creek may finally be safe from bloodsuckers. If not, the egg on her face will be enough to make a gourmet omelet. But when old friends and foes begin showing up in town under questionable circumstance, it's clear something new is on the horizon. The murder of a prominent official threatens to cripple the brittle peace Natalie has brought to town. Alternate realities and timeline jumps all converge revealing truths, deceptions and worst of all, roads not taken. Natalie must face her worst fears, her biggest regrets, and most of all a deep longing that nothing will ever be the same again. Meanwhile a long sought after ally brings them all to the brink of madness. And his betrayal? Could be the biggest heartbreak of them all.

To get a feel for the other books in the series, that this one needs to fit with, I am attaching the PSD files that my previous cover artist has graciously given me. .My current designer unfortunately is unavailable for the final two books in the series so if this goes well, there's another gig in it for you. I have PSD files she has sent me that show the effects, fonts, and other elements she has used in the cover Being the 6th book in a series, it is most important than the cover fits the theme of the existing books. Such as font, the police 'do not cross tape in each book' and the gritty feel. Other than those items I am open to the creative interpretation of the designer.
