ebook cover and possible print edition for CreateSpace. Need a cover that captures the essence of the story line. The cover has to have ambiance. the lead female is 34 years old. Wheat colored hair. Curly, messy, atop her head, ponytail. Male character is brawny, dark hair, dark eyes, hair a bit curly--not neat, collar length. Beard stubble. He is a telephone lineman and tanned. Prefer head shots. No naked bodies or abs...no wife beater undershirts or tats. Sleeves cut out, muscular is fine. Unbuttoned shirt is fine. Jeans...Couple not to be kissing. I am attaching the current cover. I like the colors. I despise the font. Font must be visible and easy to read in thumbnail. No curley cues. Title is not to buried in color. There is humor in the story The character featured is far too solemn and looks depressed. Also she is in a sweater and the story takes place in summer. Author name to be at the bottom of the cover...I'm not selling me, I'm selling a book. Note to artist: I'm not selling art either. Artist gets credit on copyright page. The book is title The House on Persimmon Road. It is one of my better selling books. Background can be interior or outside. I am attaching the current cover. I'm also attaching the cover Count the Roses, another of my books. The couple on Roses is a bit more upmarket that the couple in The House on Persimmon Road. Here is the book description for Persimmon Road: If Justine Hale had the time, she'd get in her car and go crazy. She owns two kids, an ex mother-in-law and a bankrupt mother. Money scarce, she moves all into a run-down, two-hundred-year-old house. Lottie Roberts offers to help. She's bossy. She cooks. It's her house. So what if she's betwixt and between? Before Lottie can say squat, Tucker Highsmith steals her thunder with his lazy grin, sexy Alabama drawl and Mr Fix-it talent. Plagued with the demands of her family, Justine dismisses ghost and guy alike. But hidden agendas prevail and Justine is caught in the middle.
The house has a benign ghost who speaks her mind, but no one can hear her. She's funny. As is much of the dialogue between the two grandmothers. I would hope for the face of an elderly woman faded into the background high and off sides to represent Lottie, the ghost. Readers adore her. I have attached a pic of one I like. Something similar is good. This is down home Alabama, an old tobacco farm house.
