K. Alex Walker
I'm an author of contemporary romance books that have consistently topped Amazon bestseller charts; however, I'm a little awkward, painfully shy, and intrigued by romantic relationships. Think pilot trying to perform surgery. HI, I'm Alex.
Taryn is a retired flight attendant who recently moved to a small town with her commercial airline pilot husband, Oliver. Soon after they move in, she realizes they're not the only two people in the house. Jonah, a former soldier who served during the U.S. Civil War, haunts their new Victorian home. And, in communing with Jonah, Taryn uncovers a mystery that has remained unsolved for over 50 years while trying to keep secrets of her own.
Women Ages 25+ Primarily USA, UK, Europe, and Canada but my readers in India, South America, and Mexico are growing.
Usually, I provide a lot of detail here, but because of these two AMAZING images, I'm going to let you, as the designer, work your magic. The book is technically paranormal romance, but it's heavier on the paranormal with subtle fantasy elements. The cover image is the ghost in the story. Other elements from the story that could be inspiring: - The house is an old Victorian. - A full moon, a crow, and/or the color red. - Woods, dried leaves, porch light glow. Note: I'm running two contests right now if you see my name 2x or recognize my writing style. If you need me, I'm here. I wish the standard was more than 7 days :-)
What to avoid
I'm a fan of bold, easy-to-read text, and script isn't always easy to read. On Google fonts, something like "Passions Conflict" could be a good script. Otherwise, I'm cool with a good serif or sans-serif.
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.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
