Check out Ella Jakobs's Book cover contest…
Keona: Verbrannte Erde
Wenn professionelle Kaffeetrinkerin ein realistischer Beruf wäre, dann gäbe es keine Bücher von Ella Jakobs. Weil ihr aber bisher niemand angeboten hat, sie fürs Kaffeetrinken zu bezahlen, schreibt sie Fantasy- und Liebesromane. Am liebsten unter der Dauerbeschallung von fragwürdiger Musik, im Wissen um herannahende Deadlines und auf erhöhtem Koffeinlevel. Dabei kämpft Ella Jakobs täglich gegen ihre Vorliebe für schlechte Metaphern und Vergleiche – weil sie dabei aber eher dem Goliath als dem David entspricht, können Sie sich das Ergebnis vielleicht denken.
"Keona - Verbrannte Erde" tells the story of a strong 18 year old woman who desperately tries to survive in a broken world.
German-speaking women between 16 and 30 years
My story takes place in a dystopian world with lots of wasteland showing signs of a past war - think heavily burnt out or otherwise decayed buildings, barren, uncultivated and uninhabited ground. The protagonist is an 18 year old woman who is the leader of one of the few remaining clans. She searches for a way to make everything better. I am looking for a clean, not overloaded cover that conveys the feeling of both: a broken world and the hope for a better future. Because there are a few fantasy elements in the story an abstract approach to the design is possible. This is the first part of a quadrilogie. Every book focuses on a different element, whereby the first one is about the element earth. To link the four books together every cover should contain the matching element in form of the alchemical symbol. The symbol of the earth is a down-pointing triangle with a horizontal line in the middle. Therefore I would like to see this symbol integrated in the cover. To provide an idea about what my taste is like, I like the following covers very much: Suzanne Collins: Die Tribute von Panem 1 - Tödliche Spiele Cecelia Ahern: Flawed – Wie perfekt willst du sein? Ally Condie: Die Ankunft Neal & Jarrod Shusterman – Dry
