What's your vision?
I am looking for a book cover design (ebook) for The Suburban Seducción, a novel (Lloyd Gil Murder Mysteries, No. 1). Ideally, it would have a suburban house with a white picket fence in front with a blonde hair lock and blood stain on the white fence or something else to capture the meaning of this book. I'm open to all ideas, but want to convey it's a murder mystery/legal thriller. Here's a synopsis that can go on the back: Young, handsome and manipulating, Lloyd Gil earns his living for he and his wife as a software account executive in Canyon Base. Everything appears perfect on the outside until police reopen a ten-year-old murder case in Gil's neighborhood. Gil is quickly reminded of his sexually deviant past, which lead to the death of Annabelle Phillips, a young, beautiful, and pregnant suburban wife. Gil remains confident he will stay under the police radar, but once another suburban wife turns up dead, he finds himself at the heart of the investigation in both murders. To help in his defense, Gil enlists his estranged step-brother, a high-profile attorney while quickly earning notoriety as the “White Picket Fence Killer." When he meets another potential victim Eva Flores, she is instantly seduced by Gil, but torn because of his abusive ways that remind her of her childhood. Eva uses psychological games to try to save her own life and “fix” Gil, who harbors a rage he can't even begin to understand. Blending non-stop thrill and courtroom drama with a keen sense of the criminal justice system, The Suburban Seducción explores how far a person will push the limits of justice. It raises important questions about in utero domestic violence and whether it can manifest in rage over time--or worse--murder. As first in a series of legal thrillers, The Suburban Seducción featuring Lloyd Gil, will ask you to decide whether a murderer can ever be redeemed.
"a Novel" should be written after the title of the book and "Lloyd Gil Murder Mysteries" somewhere if it fits on the front so the reader knows it's part of a series. The title and author name DEBRA MARES should be big enough to stand out and bold so it can be seen by readers in a thumbnail.
