Entertainment & The Arts
The Hawaiians is a historical fiction novel about a young east coast boy in the 1820s who sails to hawaii aboard a ship. Here's the synopsis: "Surfing is not a crime, but it was in Old Hawaii when the Calvinist missionaries held power by influencing the royalty. When a group of young Americans jump ship and start the first surf camp in a downtrodden and practically deserted Waikiki, Head Missionary Hiram Bingham becomes apoplectic with rage. A cast of memorable characters fill this novel with many plot twists and ideas that are as relevant today as they were almost two hundred years ago. In 1824 sixteen year old, orphaned William Goode was put aboard ship in New Orleans as an apprentice seaman against his will. A young man with unique abilites, he began an adventure that took him to Hawaii, forging friendships and making enemies along the way. Spanning more than a decade, this fast paced narrative is written in a blend of James Michener and James Patterson, full of accurate history and a rousing ensemble of characters presented in a page turning style. The Calvinist missionaries want to make sure no one is having any fun while William and his friends just want to work their little farm of taro patches and fish ponds and go surfing free from religious oppression. From the beaches of early Waikiki to the chilly winters of Boston, this novel moves back and forth, around the Horn and across the vast Pacific, with enterprising surfers, a beautiful Hawaiian princess, runaway slaves, and a renegade priest. You will fall in love with Hawaii, fall in love with the characters, and see Hawaiian history in a whole new way." The Hawaiians is a 393-page novel that is currently being sold on Amazon kindle. My father wrote it, and for his birthday I'm going to let him choose the winning design to replace the stock image cover he currently has!
What's your vision?
Ebook cover alone, to include the title "The Hawaiians" and the author's name "Steve Stelle". The original vision I had for the cover was a drawn theme similar in style to the "Kona Brewing Company" art as seen here: http://oregonscreen.com/blog/aa-blog-uploads/2013/10/kona-bigwave2.jpg But, feel free to be creative for this book that falls in the historical fiction/young adult genre. Ideally, the book cover would include the famous "Diamond Head" volcano silhouette in Waikiki, but note that the book takes place in the 1820s and 1830s, so there are no hotels, only natives and Calvinists! Also, the ship that the characters sail to Hawaii is an old barque, and looks like this: http://members.pcug.org.au/~kelmar/mellish.jpg So it would be great to have the ship included in the cover, along with the main character, who is a teenage boy probably wearing a puffy white sailing shirt from the 1800s.
