A simple and eye catching design. It should be clear from the cover that this is a DARK MYSTERY set in the LATE VICTORIAN PERIOD (1890's). The emphasis should be on dark, to reflect the title, which is Something Sinister.
The other books in the series have a sepia coloured background. This book should have the same so that it remains consistent (see attachments). See my website for more details about my previous books (http://www.olivierbosman.com)
It would be great if the cover showed elements of VICTORIAN PENNY DREADFUL publications (see attachments).
I have attached some pictures which I bought from shutterstock, in case you might want to use them, but personally I'm not so mad about them. If you do use the picture with the old man, perhaps you can somehow blur his face a little.
I'll be using the same front cover for the e-book. It should therefore be something that can stand out in thumbnail size (and I would need a separate file for it)
The book size should be 5" x 8". The length will be around 60 000 words.
