I am an author.
What's your vision?
I am looking for a book cover for my most recent book. It is a thriller, titled "The Fourth Target", the tentative book description is at the bottom of this section. I have attached samples of my current book covers. I would like the new cover to look like a consistent brand alongside them (perhaps similar fonts / placement of title and author name). Whilst the 'brand' theme is important it is most important that any design can compete against current best sellers in the thriller genre. I have also attached a couple of thriller covers from Amazon top sellers to give a flavour of the current competition. (I'm not a big fan of the plain silhouette of a man but it is clearly popular! Some interesting twist on it would be good to see.) It will be used for a paperback and ebook so I need the design to have front and back cover (as shown in the two samples of my own books attached). The majority of my sales come from ebooks so it must look good at thumbnail size and there can't be any essential design elements only on the back cover. The book's description is as follows: A criminal mastermind trying to have a normal life. An elite assassin with an unknown target. A detective out to prove herself. Seth Mortimer is the Architect, a criminal mastermind on the brink of taking over London’s underworld. Unfortunately he is also in Italy with his girlfriend who knows nothing about his work. And he is a little bored. So, when he decides to take on a particularly difficult assassination in the UK remotely, he realises he will need help. Enter Caitlin Sowerby, elite assassin. Seth will develop the plan and Caitlin will execute it. Pitted against them both is Emma Mills, a rising detective in the Metropolitan Police who is desperate to find the assassin before she strikes again. But before she can do that she must work out… Who is the fourth target?
