There will be no author bio on the back cover, but a bit about me: this is my second novel, and the first book in a trilogy.
This book is Paradise Lost and Dante's Inferno retold, the two main characters go to Hell in search of a woman and meet with Satan, angels, and other demons.
18-35; fantasy readers; Christian mythology readers.
Book cover type
I am a very big fan of Wil Staehle's book designs, specifically the cover for V.E. Schwab's "Vicious" and also Cassandra Clare's "City of Bones," but I also want the book to relate in some way to "Paradise Lost" and Dante's "Inferno." I have included some images below that I think would be good to work from. I want to cover to show two wings inverted to point upward and meeting together at the bottom: one wing is the bat's wing of a demon, the other is the feathered wing of an angel--these wings can be simple but I want the reader to be able to tell that they are different. I would like the space between the wings to form a triangular shape, similar to the one in image three below which depicts Dante's vision of Hell; that space should be used for the title, series title, and author's name. I do like the coloring of image one for "Paradise Lost," but I think the red should be darker and there should be some black there instead of gold. Otherwise, take your creative freedom.
What to avoid
I have allowed stock images, but be careful when using them, I need something that looks unique and stands out.
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
