Entertainment & The Arts
I am an adult horror and sci-fi writer.
What's your vision?
I am looking for an artist who will stick with me through my series. Currently there are four novels planned a few novellas and possibly a fifth novel. I have many more books outside this series planned. Cover Design: I wanted a scene in which the main character is pushing against a door, trying to hold the zombies out. Instead of looking at her simply trying to close the door I want to do a split between the sides so you can see the main character and the zombies. Similar to the cover for the Rainbow Six: Siege video game. I don't need black and white and would be open to more color in the cover. The main character is a Caucasian woman with long brown hair, in a brown leather jack, jeans and black combat boots. She's dirty from days on the run from the zombies. She can either be forcefully pushing against the with her hands or desperately leaning into the door (see picture below). For the zombies, they are more infected humans than the walking dead. They can be bloody, missing limbs, guts hanging out, anything but they don't have the blank stare. They snarl, sneer, snap and are otherwise incredibly aggressive. I was only thinking one or two zombies on the other side of the door but I wouldn't be opposed to a horde. I want one (or a few) of the zombies reaching through the gap in the door (see picture below) for the main character, perhaps have her ducking out of the way of the hand. This scene takes place in a school in the front office. The background does not need to be incredibly detailed but I do want a background. I am somewhat open to other designs but they must be dynamic. The book is fast paced and I want the cover to convey that.
I need an ebook cover and print cover. Front Text: Across the book title, "Devour". The series title will state "Book One of the Death & Decay Series" smaller than the book title. I will writing under the name "R. L. Blalock". I am open to colors and fonts. Back Text: St. Louis is falling to pieces. In the midst of rioting, a dangerous new disease has sprung pushing an already dire situation over the edge. Those who are infected suddenly become extremely aggressive, attacking and even eating those around them. And Olivia "Liv" Bennett is caught right in the middle of it. Liv’s hectic life of school, work, and motherhood grind to a halt as the city around her begins to devour itself. Forced to flee from her car with nothing but a diaper bag and her eighteen-month-old daughter, Elli. Liv must trek forty miles on foot across the feral infested suburbs of St. Louis to a safe haven that may not even be safe. What other hope does she have? As her world begins to crumble, Liv is left clinging to the hope that Slag Stead, a two hundred and fifty acres, self-sufficient farm, remains a beacon of light and not another slaughter. But getting there just might kill her. Print size: 5 inches by 8 inches
