I'm a young adult fantasy author.
I am seeking a professional cover design for my book, which I expect to publish in June. I will be publishing to both e-reader and print. The novel, titled "Thorn," is a retelling of the Grimm's fairy tale 'The Goose Girl.'
Attached please find:
- Formatting requirements for e-reader and print editions
- Book cover templates for the print edition (PDF and PNG)
- A document containing an excerpt for the back cover of the print edition, as well as a brief synopsis of the novel and a description of key characters
- The first three chapters of the book (to get a sense of style and character)
I will need Photoshop compatible RGB files with all layers in tact including adjustment layers and editable Type layers. I would also like a final JPEG all images and a final print-quality PDF of the print edition cover. I reserve the right to use these for other promotional materials, including bookmarks and my website.
I do not have preconceived notions of what I would like on the book cover. Please feel free to try what you like; I am looking forward to seeing your designs.
