How ftfarber started their book cover journey
I enjoy writing in many different genres. I have authored picture books, chapter books, a young adult novel and a legal thriller, as well as the biography of a Holocaust survivor. I am interested in self-publishing my YA novel because my literary agent has not been able to sell it.
Ice Queen, a contemporary YA novel, is a vindictive sexting story that pits 16- year-old high school outcast Blair Evans against the class mean girl, Krystal Cooper [the Ice Queen.] When Blair ends up with the Ice Queen’s ex-boyfriend, David Woods [high school soccer and ice hockey jock], she is thrust into the midst of a cyber-war with her archrival who tries to seduce David back and plays dirty getting Blair arrested for sexting using a racy photo of her taken off of David’s cell phone. When Blair finally works out a plea deal with the prosecutor, new sexting photos of her materialize, derailing any hope of working out a deal with prosecutors. The only way to defend herself is to figure out who took the new explicit photos … and how. Blair’s diverse set of friends form super-sleuth group C-6 to help her solve the sexting mystery. But if their crazy plan doesn’t work, she’s headed for jail.

What colors do you want to see in your design?
I envision the title Ice Queen to be in an ice crystal font and the cover should incorporate a cell phone somewhere in it. Possible cover ideas are to have Krystal sitting on an ice throne holding a cell phone, a love triangle image with Blair & David up front and Krystal in the background, or a cell phone cracking out of ice with a very blurry image of Blair in a hot pink lacy bra & panties set on the screen –-for this cover option the title would need to be a dark color to be visible over the ice background. I am also open to any interpretation of the information I provided but wanted to plant some seeds for inspiration. Here are descriptions of the main characters: Blair is thin & pretty w/ light blue eyes, a smattering of freckles and long curly reddish-blond hair. The Ice Queen has shoulder-length straight dark hair, lots of makeup and big boobs, and is always surrounded by a posse of nameless followers. David is handsome & fit with dark wavy hair and chocolate-brown eyes with honey-gold specks.
