I am looking for a beautiful cover design for our short stories, novellas and series. The designer should have a good grasp of typography. The cover should be high resolution and be delivered in jpg and pdf for digital and print. (I think that Amazon specs are 2400 X 1600) - I am looking to find my 'go to' designer(s) for our Christian romances. There are to be no crosses or churches on the cover, and any model used must be modest (as in no cleavage or abs showing), no tattoos and preferably with no makeup or jewelry (Amish women don't wear it).
For clarification due to several emails I've received (thank you for bringing this to my attention) AND several concepts delivered with it: the Heroine is NOT Amish and has never been Amish. Therefore she should not be portrayed in their traditional garb. The Hero IS Amish.
The second cover to be awarded here is titled, A Chance to Choose by Alyson Manes. It is fiction, not fantasy, and the ages of the readers are 35-65. I see this story in shades of earthtones and of the fall harvest - think wheat fields, hay piles, corn golden in the fields, low mountaiins in the background maybe. The story is about a city girl who ditches her city gear to live plainly (somewhat like the Amish) during summer on her father's farm, and the hardworking Amish farmhand who secretly loves her. The story is about innocence and unrequoited love. It is a coming of age story.
I see the cover more dreamy or artistic than a plain photograph. However, you are the artist ~ so show me your wares.
I anticipate this will be awarded within the next 5-7 days. So...I look forward to what you create.
I anticipate initiating a third project by the end of the week - different artisty framework. So watch for it.
Note: the subgenre for these books are Amish romance.
Note: there is a fourth cover which has similar titling and may go to the designer who wins this project, and a third cover which is completely different that this set. I will post the third cover by the week's end.
