I write American Civil War novels for ages teen through adult for the US market.
What's your vision?
I need a book cover for the second novel in an American Civil War trilogy. I have uploaded two previous book covers. One can easily see both books are by the same author, so I would like to maintain that consistent branding. The cover font is Mrs Eaves Smart Lig Bold, originally supplied by Grey Matter.
The title of the book is "Prairie Dog Town." Much of the book takes place in the city of Vicksburg, Mississippi during the siege of 1863, when many of the residents lived in caved dug in the ground. This explains the title. Many recent photos of Vicksburg and the National Military Park may be found on the gallery page of my website at www.kbacon.com. Old photos of Vicksburg may be found on the Library of Congress website at https://www.loc.gov/collections/civil-war/. Just search on Vicksburg. I have attached one such image to show what it was like, but don't limit your creativity just to using that photo on the cover. I would like the overall cover color to be a shade of white, ivory, or light gray. Our national colors are red, white, and blue. The cover of the first book of the trilogy was red, the second will be white (or ivory or light gray), and the third will be blue. Note also how the cover of "Until Shiloh Comes" has one brass eagle button for book one. I would like two such buttons to appear on the cover in the same location for "Prairie Dog Town."
