Book 1 - Ange'el Morgan arrives in New York, where she is speaking about her Hope Foundation at several high-profile events. When she finds out that her life is at risk, she is not sure whom to trust—disoriented by an intense attraction to a very charming and controlling Gabriel, she attempts to regain control of her life only to find herself in the middle of a war between different factions of an ancient civilisation. The people of Ahe’ey hold the key to the future of humankind within their genes. To unlock it, Morgan and Gabriel need to help them move beyond the medieval rules that are holding them back. The price of failure may be the end of the world. http://www.angeelseries.com Target audience: Women 25 to 55

A book cover made available in two different sizes/formats: - Kindle - ebook (Dimentions - A minimum of 625 pixels on the shortest side and 1000 pixels on the longest side. For best quality, your image would be 2820 pixels on the shortest side and 4500 pixels on the longest side. More info here: https://kdp.amazon.com/help?topicId=A2J0TRG6OPX0VM#dim ) - Createspace - Paperback - 6" x 9" (15.24 x 22.86 cm), book has 323 pages. Require full cover: front and back. All the elements of the current book cover ( http://www.angeelseries.com) are correct but the cover is just not working. I spend a lot of time with the illustrator so you should reference the original cover for the specific features of the characters. Key elements: Copper haired female warrior with the sun shining behind her. Hair high, tribal look Dark haired male Angel with goatee with the full moon behind him.Hair to shoulders. Book title - Ange’el Author’s name - Jamie Le Fay The colors associated with the characters are important: - Angel dressed in white - background turquoise/ blue/ Silver - warrior dressed in golden Armour - background red/orange/yellow/gold Feel free to simplify the design, or to make it more adult in style as at the moment looks very "young"/comic book in style **** I used all my good judgement to guide an illustrator on the existing cover, and unfortunately it does not work well (although I LOVE the illustrations). When the cover is small it does not look good and the style seems to put off an older audience. So I am leaving it totally up to you, please play to your strengths. I am looking for a great concept and quality execution. The sketch I attach to the brief with the Warrior and the Angel upside down (02_sketch.jpg) is currently the one that most appeals to my taste, because if done well can really pop out amongst the other books on amazon. It is also a little arty, unusual and funky. I also like the colours used on that sketch. But I am totally open to your ideas. Use the existing cover to guide you on the physical appearance of the characters if you decide to go the photo-realistic route. ____________ PLEASE DO NOT LET THE EXAMPLES MISGUIDE YOU, I AM OPEN TO CONSIDER ALL STYLES INCLUDING PHOTO MONTAGES, THE USE OF SYMBOLS INSTEAD OF FULL CHARACTERS (aka hunger games style), ILLUSTRATIONS ETC.
I am totally open to a fresh take on the cover. The simplified draft sketches I attach are interesting to me, but feel free to send your own suggestions. text for the back of the paperback: "Packed with invigorating ideas and prose, Le Fay's novel is a nuanced exploration of feminism and its potential--for good or ill. A finely grained achievement that challenges the status quo on all fronts." - Kirkus Reviews Morgan arrives in New York, where she is speaking about her Hope Foundation at several high-profile events.

I’m so fortunate to have come across Milan for my first project. Milan was very accommodating, adaptive, and made outstanding adjustments from simple feedback. From the early book cover concept, Milan captured the essence of the story in the design and carried that through into the final product in a timely fashion. I’m appreciative of the continued support, proud of the final cover, and eager to work with them again.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
