I am a self published author looking to publish my secondbook. The target audience for my book is men and women aged 16 and above who love fantasy and adventure fiction.
What's your vision?
The cover I am wanting designed is for a comedic fantasy epic called Iron Maidens. I require a print, ebook and Audio book cover. The Story Synopsis: Alright so here’s the deal, a couple of hundred years back some old hag spouted some prophesy about this chosen dude who would come along and kick the big, bad, ugly ass of Lord Daron the black (yeah, his branding department needs to work a little harder) , the not-so-benevolent dictator of Eldrasil. Anyway back to the present day, along comes tall, dark and handsome to save the day. He’s some prissy human dude with lot’s of shiny armor, riding a big white horse and he rides right up to Daron with his sword drawn…and Daron slams a giant axe straight through the stupid gits head. So Dastardly Daron is still in charge and the world is still screwed…So much for the chosen one… But never fear, Violet and Jasmine, the two baddest bitches this side of hell have decided to take up the cause. Yeah, don’t get your hopes up too high. The story is set in a fantasy world and the two main characters are a battle hardened elf and dwarf (both are female) The Design: I have several designs in mind so below are some suggestions. Other designs will be considered but ones based on these suggestions will be looked upon more favorably. Any design should have the title clearly displayed in a large appropriate font style and have my name, Stefan M. Nardi in the same font but smaller size. - A white background with black/grey sketch of the two main characters with weapons drawn and with coloured wisps floating around the cover (see the attached sample of Brandon Sandersons books (I absolutely love those covers. - A colour image of the two main characters standing back to back with weapons drawn (standard fantasy style cover, see attached images again) - A cover showing a bow and battle axe as the main features. Design Details: - Ebook: The ebook cover should be the front cover only and should be 6x9 inches and at least 72dpi - Print cover: The front cover of the print version should be 6X9 inches and also have a spine and back cover attached as well. It should be done in CMYK and have a resolution of 300 dpi - Audio Book Cover: The audio book cover should be 2400x2400 pixels and at least 72dpi All 3 versions should be the same design just with adjusted dimensions (obviously the audiobook cover will only show part of the ebook cover. If you choose to do the ebook and audio book cover in CMYK and at 300dpi as well, that is also fine. If you require any further information or have any questions, please feel free to ask.
