Entertainment & The Arts
I write dark fantasy books for (65% male) readers from 15-32 years of age.
What's your vision?
I need an eye-catching ebook cover. The cover needs to be clearly a pirate story, but have elements of dark fantasy to it. I don't know enough about design to talk about color scheme or what images would best represent the blend of ideas. This is Captain Hook vs Peter Pan, except Hook is the hero who applies a skeptic's reason to the fantastic events around him in the real world and in Neverland. The story traces Captain Hook's life from 13 years of age to his early thirties. It is a gritty story of loss and long-awaited revenge. Title: Captain James Hook and the Curse of Peter Pan Authors: Jeremiah Kleckner & Jeremy Marshall
Aside from "The Child Thief," this book (first published in 2012) was the first articulation of criticism against the Peter Pan character and had tens of thousands of downloads. It has since flatlined. Your design could be its resurrection. Book Description (for further reference): Captain Hook has been captured by the British navy—and is soon to be hung. As Hook tells his life story to his captor, it soon becomes clear that the fearsome pirate was once a scholarly, if sickly boy—until one fateful night in Port Royal, when he meets the volatile Peter Pan ... Raise the Jolly Roger and discover the book that opened thousands of eyes to the possibility that, once upon a time, Captain Hook was not the villain we know him to be. Experience Captain James Hook's rise to piracy, including his first confrontation with Long John Silver and his service on the Queen Anne's Revenge alongside Blackbeard at the Charleston Blockade. This book is not a retelling of the events of J. M. Barrie's beloved novel. Far from it. It's a defense of the world's most famous pirate, told by the man himself. Captain Hook has reason and wit behind his hatred for Peter Pan. If only someone would listen.
