What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
The book (you should at least read the prologue at http://www.100girlnovel.com) is about a Chinese young girl traveling through time when her entire family is mysterious murdered in the 1800s. When she arrived in the modern day (2010) Silicon Valley, she needs to find traces in history to find out what actually happened to her family. As she's solving the case, she discovered more than just the mystery, but also about the human nature and life in general.
When design the cover, please focus on the girl herself - it's about her growth at different times.
To get a visual sense of how she would look like in ancient, search "Qing Dynasty Princess Fashion". Also note the modern setting is at Silicon Valley. Your design should reflect that.
Finally, we have a design concept - see attached image. But it's just a concept and we will need your talents to turn it into art!
If you could make our design concept into art, we'd be thrilled!
