Fantasy adventure novelist - This is my debut novel
What's your vision?
Design a book cover for my debut novel - a Victorian era fantasy adventure. I would like the cover to convey a sense of magic and intrigue, and be Victorian in feel. I had a cover designed by LuLu (pdf attached below) but I am hoping maybe you guys can do better. My initial idea was to use a tarot card as the main illustration - "the fool" - which represents the main character. The sketch can be seen in the attached cover. You can use the sketch as a basis for your design and alter it as you see fit. I am open to other ideas as well. Basic plot - it is 1854, After a Faerie foretells that Edwin Maussade is destined to play a pivotal role in European social history, Maussade and two agents of Her Majesty’s government are propelled into a case that leaves them vulnerable to attacks at every turn. As the team uncovers fifth column traitors to the Crown, weapons laboratories, and an assassins’ cult, townspeople begin to disappear, leading the team to wonder whether their adversary intends to replace Queen Victoria with an oligarchy. Now it is up to them to eliminate the threat before Great Britain falls. In this sweeping Victorian fantasy, weaponry and romance mix side-by-side with mage battles and man-to-man combat as the team moves toward its final battle. Maussuade, the central character, is depicted as a tall, thin man wearing a top hat and black suit. Black hair with blue highlights, deep set eyes and an aquiline nose. long white fingers and long legs. graceful. Maussaude is just starting out in life and can be pushed in either direction - to good or evil - he is the fool (tarot card), a spirit in search of experience, oblivious that he is walking towards a precipice.
