What's your vision?
I need an ebook cover made for my the first novel of a series. Title: Pull Subtitle: Book One Author: Amanda Miga Taget audience is young adult and adult paranormal romance readers. The themes in this novel are: -Forbidden Love -Love Triangle -Friend's Betrayal The characters have supernatural powers which include their auras pulling/or luring anothers auras when they touch. It adds a seductive element to the story. My protagonist is a guy whose aura is red which also happens to be his name. The love interest is a girl named Violet, whose aura is blue and Red’s friend is Grey whose aura is silver. Red happens to shape shift into a crow which is significant to his history with Violet. When Violet meets Grey they fall in love to Red’s dismay. About the story: The Guardian of hybrids carries the great burden of watching over his kind and seeing to their development as these humans discover they have supernatural abilities, but Red is finding it more difficult since he’s broken a law that's weakened his powers. It’s forbidden for the Guardian to fall in love. He’s fallen in love with Violet, a girl he’s watched over since her birth. Red is torn between what he desires and what he is destined to do, but at what cost? Too many hybrid lives have already slipped through his fingers. While distancing himself from his Beloved Violet, her near death pulls them back together and she’s taken to his sanctuary. How can Red resist her now? Grey believes that his best friend would never hurt him. Red has saved his life and given him a second chance when his past seemed unforgivable, Red was the one who showed mercy; helped lead Grey to a better life. But Red brings home a female hybrid, the one thing that forces him to reconcile his past--which he so desperately wants to forget. Violet has lost her memories, she’s grateful to her mysterious Guardian for saving her life. Her new home is like a dream and so is falling in love with Grey. But a new curiosity springs when she accidently touches Red. Her heart is suddenly pulled in another direction. Is it possible to fall in love with two people at once? I would like the following elements on the cover: A black crow feather or a crow with an aura around it representing Red’s aura. It MUST be a black CROW feather or a CROW not a raven. Crows are smoother looking and ravens look more scraggly. My protagonist has blue eyes, so the crow must have blue "sapphire" eyes. Since one theme is a love triangle I want the other character’s aura colors represented. It’s an element used throughout the entire series. I think having a crow feather or crow being “pulled” in the direction of or “pulled” by Violet’s blue aura. I’m not sure how to incorporate Grey’s silver aura, perhaps his is creeping up it entangling with Violet’s aura. These auras the move like smoke, and have the ability to push and pull others like magnets. I love rich colors and contrast. (Red, Blue, Silver and Black) I love the smoke effect and watercolor look you see on a lot of Young Adult/Teen books. This is a very emotive driven love story with paranormal twist!
VERY IMPORTANT! Please make the book cover dimensions 2,400 pixels tall by 1,600 pixels wide. This represents a book cover that is 1.5 times higher than it is wide. I prefer this size since the ebook will be viewed on iPad, Kindle, Nook and other devices and I will be distributing to various ebook stores through Smashwords and Amazon. For detailed information at Smashwords about dimensions: go to Ebook Cover Image Requirements: http://goo.gl/dRki9 KDP Amazon Ebook Cover Image Requirements: http://goo.gl/q8vCC Book covers must be uploaded as image files (files that end with .jpeg, .jpg or .png).
