I'm looking for an e-book cover and a POD cover. [The same cover for both is what I want. I just need the additional spine and back for the POD book.] The novel is a mystery.
Night on a street lined with undefined, loft-like non-residentail buildings. No lights are on in any of the buildings. All windows are dark.
Two couples embrace each other. One couple is two women. The other couple is a man and a woman. The faces are not clear. Both couples wear clothing that is general and not too detailed, but clearly feminine or masculine. One detail makes it obvious that one of the women is part of both couples: she wear a bright red scarf.
We also see the upper third of another woman. Her body is clothed in something dark and casual. Nothing is clearly defined, but we see enough of her face to know that she is an attractive, African-American. She is at one side, slightly above the two couples who fill the central important space, and is observing them.
A dead middle-aged man lies in the street.
Also somewhere on the cover is the title: Black Lotus by Lita Lepie
Copy for the back cover which will help give you an idea of the book will run something like: This mystery is film noir in a book.
One by one you will meet a group of men and woman as they go about their personal and professional lives. You will see them as they live, love, and betray for power, money, revenge and honor.
Here are a few of them: that guy lying dead in the street; a disgraced African American detective trying to redeem herself; two dangerous, not-to-be trusted women; an Ivy League attorney who works for a drug cartel; and the Drug King who controls a complicated hide-and-seek game.
The dead guy? The woman in the red scarf is his daughter and she just happens to be involved with his death. But here's the kicker: she's also the Police Chief who's looking for the killer.
This novel will give you a read you'll not soon forget. Guaranteed.
[The spine will say Black Lotus by Lita Lepie. In addition to the copy, there might be an author's pix on back and a few endorsements. So this can be laid out as a template to contain these elements. ]
