Alchemy & Treachery
Mel Norman was born and raised in Western New York in a teeny, tiny town with a population of less than 2,000. An introvert at heart, she spent the majority of her time as a teen devouring books and making friends with librarians. Now, as a just-as-introverted adult, she hopes to one day be the librarian lonely teens make friends with and the author of the books they take comfort in.
Rosaline Abraves lives in a world filled to the brim with magic and mysticism, a world full of complete and utter diversity. Her family has had magic in their blood for as long as they can remember, with only one exception—Rosaline. She just can’t seem to do the fantastical things her family can do so easily. When tragedy strikes Rosaline’s family suddenly and violently, she finds herself on a quest to the renowned Wu Palace in order to make her family proud and find the truth about her difficulties with magic—whatever that may be. However, Rosaline may uncover more than just the chilling truth behind her difficulties with magic in that palace. She just might unearth a dangerous secret that’s threatening the world.
This book will interest tweens, teens, and young adult women. Also anyone looking for Native American (Iroquois/Seneca) representation.
Book cover type
Like the images of covers that I included, I would like perspective and a similar style to be utilized. In terms of specifics, I would like the inclusion of a thunder storm, either a Chinese dragon or the silhouette of one, and for the dragon to have eyes that look to be glowing a golden color. I would also like the title to be a similar gold color and in Trajan font or something similar.
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.
