Paranormal/Mystery Book cover --Paperback
The Man With the Green Suitcase book
Hi everyone. I’m a first time fiction novelist and here is my project. Thanks in advance for all submissions. Read the back of the book description to get idea of what my book is about, but I have a fully developed design concept.
Design needs: spine, back of book, and ISBN barcode (I have that)
Specs: 5 x 8 paperback book, 328 interior pages, uploaded already on Createspace so you can access if needed
Also need this formatted for Kindle.
I need hi and low res versions, and a thumbnail of cover
I will give you design credit and I need all rights/control over the design.

Must be familiar and use Kindle specs:
1. Character Description:
Old, homeless man with green antique suitcase, he’s standing from the side—we only see his profile, his features are not very clear, maybe he’s cast in a dark shadow. I have an attachment of an old man, to give you an example of what I think of as old and homeless looking. You don't have to have this much detail to him. Plus I want my man to be standing to the side and have more shadowed features.
He’s wearing raggedy, holey clothes.
Thick dark black and gray hair
Deep wrinkles, face glowing
Green Suitcase glowing
Standing in an alley
Streetlight in background with a light shining on him or in background.
2. Scene: should look very mysterious like covers of a mystery book.
3. Background needs to be dark-darkish( black, darkish green or even black fading into dark green)
4. Front Cover Text on the book is: The Man With the Green Suitcase By Dee Doanes. Choose colors that show up well on background color
5. Clothes: He has on baggy, holey, clothes. Dirty green jacket, torn white shirt, holey dark blue pants or darkish pants, and dirty high top white tennis shoes He should look disheveled and homeless.
6. Suitcase: He's holding an old antique beat-up looking green leather suitcase, red fabric and white fabric is hanging out of the bottom. The fabric and the bottom of the suitcase where it's hanging from it is glowing.
The Man With the Green Suitcase
(You can play around with formatting, font, etc. But this starting portion that ends with the question probably needs to stay in this format to stand out. I'm attaching a Word document with how I aligned it originally)
A corrupt businessman and
A disfigured young woman
Have in common with a mysterious, old homeless man who carries a green suitcase?
The old man comes into people’s lives
because it is important for them to experience the visions
that he is somehow able to show them—visions that even he doesn’t understand. But whoever he connects with will go through a transformation that will change the course of their life,
for better or worse.
The old man has no memory of who he is or even what the suitcase holds. But one day he will find out all about his own secret and dark past…
This story is a mix of fantasy/paranormal, a mystery that needs to be solved, and a man and woman who will finally realize that they were meant to come into each other’s lives and remain forever.
