Used own designs and ideas, and listened to my feedback. I really enjoyed working with Bachec.
The designer created a mockup book cover very fast and it looked great. The designer worked on two projects for us at the same time. We appreciate the quick turnaround and we work great with this designer.
rock1984 produced a great design, and was very helpful and prompt in addressing my concerns. I would definitely use him again.
How chestnutbuttonpublishers started their book cover journey
Mamo's Magic Motorhome
Mamo's Magic Motorhome is about a grandmother (the author) called Mamo (what my grandchildren actually call me) who travels with 2 dogs in her motorhome. She has lots of adventures. The book is written from the perspective of the magic motorhome (which Mamo does not know is magic at first). It will be a series of short stories (5 pages) - each story a separate adventure.
It is aimed at children between 3 and 5 if their parents read it to them, slightly older if they read it themselves.
(1).It is clear that the train is the subject of the story (the motorhome is the subject of my story.
(2) the fact that the same cover could be used for different short stories but that the orange section could be changed to show a new title and images relevant to that title. In my book, the orange section would be 'Sunset at Loch Moon', and the bottom section would be Mamo's Magic Motorhome
It is clear that the bath is the main part of the story
It is clear that the horse and rat are the main part of the story
What colors do you want to see in your design?
The cover that I am asking you to design will be used for all of the short stories, so will almost be like a watermark (i.e. the motorhome and the title / sub-title Mamo's Magic Motorhome. On top of this watermark (somewhere) will be the name of the short story itself and this will be changed for each short story (in the example that is attached it is Sunset at Loch Moon). Essentially I want readers to know what all the short stories are part of the Mamo's Magic Motorhome set of short story adventures, but also to be identify the specific short story it relates to.
