Cover art for the second book, Asylum, in my Time of Death series.
Winner design must include:
•Full paperback wrap cover (print book is 6x9)
•Audiobook cover (at least 2400x2400)
Cover should match the style look and feel of Book 1, Induction (see attached) somehow, so that they are identifiable as from the same series. (I am not opposed to redoing the first cover to match a spectacular design.)
Concept ideas (suggestions):
•I do not generally like people in covers, architecture/landscape preferred.
•Asylum is a mansion (in the style of the Ca d'Zan in Sarasota, Florida), in one scene, the group approaches the mansion and it's got bear traps in front of the closed ominous gate that looks as if zombies have tried to gain access. I can picture this being a possible cover.
•Only a few months have passed since the apocalypse began, so there should be some weathering/disuse, but it definitely needs to look dystopian.
•Other settings in the book are: a shipping yard...containers used as a makeshift safehouse, a highway abandoned that the group needs to drive on the shoulder of the road to pass, and a houseboat.
•Asylum does not refer to a sanitarium, the word is meant more as a haven - the characters are seeking asylum.
Official Book Synopsis for Time of Death #2: Asylum:
TAGLINE (please use on cover): Surviving the journey is just the beginning.
The last two months have brought nothing but death and destruction for Emma Rossi. She survived the initial zombie outbreak with her husband, Jake, and their dog, Daphne, but the cost was steep: Sanibel has fallen.
In a world where the only constant is change, the group is pushed to their limits before reaching the gates of Asylum, a coastal stronghold in Sarasota, Florida.
Once again, Emma must navigate an apocalyptic wasteland filled with relentless hordes of the undead and other menacing horrors that threaten her survival.
Only thing is certain. No one is safe from what lurks on either side of Asylum's gates. Asylum may offer more than just safety.
Sanity will be tested; and many won't live to tell the tale.
