What's your vision?
In need of a full book cover for a YA Novel (front/spine/back) as well as front only for eBook (attachment is print template) Must abide by Industry Standard Rules: Requirements for the size of your cover art have an ideal height/width ration of 1.6, this means: • A minimum of 625 pixels on the shortest side and 1000 pixels on the longest side • For best quality, your image would be 1563 pixels on the shortest side and 2500 pixels on the longest side • Use color images when possible using RGB (red, green, blue) color mode. Print book size (spine, etc) is in attachment. 5.5 x 8.5 Book Title, Author name & testimonial MUST appear on front cover Back Cover will have Synopsis, author bio/photo (attached), Publishing logo (attached) and barcode. Design Notes: Time period: present. Mostly summer months. Lavender and Cobalt blue are pivotal colors in the story, but pink is also symbolic of ballet - but please experiment with your own vision. Much of book takes place on the coastline of water. Mood/tone of the story: A blend of romance and suspense/action. A coming-of-age story. INVISIBILITY is a HUGE portion of this story. This is a YA book for all YA. Young women & young men. Experiment with how you would show us invisibility on a book. The book mixes romance and suspense - the cover should reflect this. BE CREATIVE!! We want to see what you come up with to illustrate this wonderful tale! Thank you! http://faculty.smu.edu/loris/Some_Act_of_Vision.html
Title: Some Act of Vision Author: Lori Ann Stephens Testimonial: "A gripping and enchanting tale of love and discovery. I want more!" ~ Amy Plum, international bestselling author of the DIE FOR ME series Synopsis for back of book: After ten years of ballet lessons, Jordan Walker has finally landed her first principal role in Romeo and Juliet. Sweeter yet, "Romeo" has asked her to the May Fling Ball at Winston High. But a massive Texas earthquake triggered by the fracking activity nearby tears apart the community and Jordan's future as a dancer. The Walker family survives the earthquake, but wake up the next morning utterly invisible. On the run from a military with nefarious plans, Jordan and her family are forced to abandon their old lives. It isn't until she meets Caleb, a blind musician, that Jordan dares to hope again. And the more their secret friendship develops, the more Jordan understands the danger she's placed everyone in.
