A Plan to Kill
T. R. Schaap
T.R.Schaap is retired and lives with his wife, Juanita in Idaho. After being a hobby writer most of his life, upon retirement he was able to commit to his writing passion fulltime. T.R. also loves wood working, candle making and playing music. He plays drums, keyboards, guitar, writes music and plays occasionally in a local band.
An accidental shooting between gangs in East L.A. comes to a brutal climax, far away at a guest ranch in the mountains of Idaho, when ranch cowboys try to protect a young Latino gang member, hiding from the rival L.A. gang coming up to kill him.
Young adults, older readers, middle age readers, certainly women but I believe men will find this book entertaining and full of adventure. Not a dull moment. Some off-color language, due to the nature of the gang members. Easy to read. A fun, interesting mix of action between the gangs in L.A. and Oscar's new experiences in the mountains with the cowboy culture.
Book cover type
I'm not sure. This is my second book, and I didn't do to well on it's design, so I'm looking to you for ideas that will pop. If this works, I'll be coming back to you to do a redesign of my first book, on Amazon, called The Hiding Door, (Look up under my author name)
What to avoid
I would like to see something showing about gangs in east LA and mountains with trees, like in Idaho.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at $299.
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
trschaap collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
