Haline is a dystopian novel about a “post climate-change” future. The plot is suspenseful and fast paced (it takes place over just 4 days), and early readers tell me they weren’t able to put the book down. Like any great book (a-hem :), Haline is really about its main characters and their personal journeys: Natasha, who has something to prove; Aaren, who has something to hide; and Joaquin, who discovers something about himself that changes the course of his life – and all their lives. The story revolves around an upcoming election in the city-state of Haline, where the charismatic President Gaven Jemmer is seeking an unprecedented third term in a resource-starved world licking its wounds after decades of war and famine following the shutdown of earth's thermohaline flow.
What's your vision?
Hi there! I'm looking for cover art that'll make the book stand out *but that isn't cheesy like most cover art*. No photos of people or animals; something more abstract. I've uploaded a few of my early attempts so you can get a sense at what I'm going for, but I'm *totally* open to something super different so long as it's (a) powerful and (2) not cheezy :) The rings in my early attempts are the six rings of Haline. The center of the city-state is at the center, called alpha, then the ring is the "border" between the center city and the first belt, beta belt. Then the second ring is the border between beta and gamma, and so on. Please be thinking about both front and back in your design. The book will be cut to a 5x8 trim, and is about 220 pages (about a 3/4 inch spine). The focus is on the front; on the back will be some simple text (which I'll get you), and a photo of me; the design can/should carry around the corner of the spine to the back. Let me know if you have any questions!
