What's your vision?
Book cover for my parody novel: To Kill A Mockingjay. I will be providing a rough mock-up (attached) of what I am looking for as well as some "inspiration" samples of the original book's cover. Similar to (but hopefully better than…) my mock-up, I want something stylish, but relatively minimalist. I definitely want the tree to have a cut in it and "A Parody" in the tree's knot hole. Also, there is symbolism in the trunk of the tree looking somewhat like a doric column (think of the towering, fluted columns in front of any government building or courthouse). If there is a way to make it a natural looking part of the tree, but also column-like that would be awesome. My other thought was to have the upper branches look tentacle-like (the octopus reach of government), but that might be too weird (a doric column-octopus lovechild…see what you can do) I really like the idea of the blindfolded Lady Justice with her scale missing and holding an ax instead of a sword. However, I am open to other interpretations. I intend to publish it as both a paperback (via Createspace) and eBook (via Kindle Direct Publishing) and will need versions that meet their specifications. Designers already familiar with these would be preferred. Also I will provide a document with the back cover text, which should be fully justified on the cover. I am open to different types of fonts and looks, however, I do want the writing to be large enough (no 8 pt font!) and bright enough (colors that contrast) to be easily read by anyone. On the back I have an author's quote to use: "I loved the satire and tone. Like Vonnegut meets John Kennedy Toole." -Jarod Kintz, Author of This Book is Not for Sale (title in italics) Also, FYI, I will do the About the Author inside the book, not on the back cover.
