“Electronica” by Jessica Benya is soon to be released October 2014 but needs an amazing cover to adorn the first book in the trilogy of this Young Adult Science Fiction Novel. The book will be released in both paperback and e-book formats and will run about 300 pages in length. Please consider the Createaspace pdf & png templates in your design. Both the title and author should be on the spine and the back will have the synopsis. It will be on various websites like Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kindle, and eBook.
The idea I have for my book cover is of a girl in the dark with a bright light shining behind her that makes her a silhouette. She is wearing cargo pants, and a sports bra. Her hair is rather short in the back with two longer strands in the front that frame her face. If the light strikes it then the hair would either be golden blonde or red. The color is either blonde or red, do not mix them. There is a road barrier in front of her, if it received any light it would be metallic, and it reaches her just above her knees. the girl has her foot on the barrier, in sneakers. Then she has a pair of white headphones on with a blue wire that runs off the page, then reappears on the barrier spelling the author’s name “Jessica Benya” in cursive. “Electronica” would be written out on the barrier above the author’s name.
On the back of the cover in the center of the top, I would like the symbol of a treble clef with the straight line of the treble clef bent into a lightning bolt. Then room for the synopsis:
“In a republic, not so different from our own, social standing is not based on the accumulation of wealth but on music, dance, and what drives human emotion. The Nation of Vesper competes with fellow nations not on the field of battle, nor in the realm of politics or markets, but each nation is judged by its next generation of youth. In our own world, the young control the media and fashion. In this dystopian society, the actions of the young determine the fate of nations.
Coming of age in a society based on music, Diana Nova steps onto the world’s stage. By winning early rounds, she is sucked into the political intrigue of the rebel fraction. She finds herself pulled by the issues of the day and the desires of her heart. Diana Nova, who likes to be called DJ, might just be the answer to a hurting world.”
This is a young adult science fiction novel. If there are any other ideas I am open to them, as long as if there is a picture of a person that the face is not visible, and the symbol of the treble clef with the straight line of the treble clef bent into a lightning bolt is present. It is perfectly fine if the symbol is in the front in a different design, I can’t figure how to put it on the front. The main motifs in the novel are of music (genres), light/darkness, and economic class.
