Project Description:
IMPORTANT: DO NOT! PM ME or Message me unless you have finished samples that meet the expected parameters as stated below.

I have spent the last year building a novel and it is almost finally time to sell. For my hard work, I need a book cover that sells my name as well as the title of the novel. Several novelists come to mind in what type of work I desire; names such as Robin Cook, the Author of Contagion, and Stephen King, the Author of Coma. I really like their cover designs. See the attachments.

IMPORTANT: DO NOT! PM ME or Message me unless you have finished samples that meet the expected parameters as stated below.

The criteria for the cover of my book is described as follows:
Visible on the front cover and spine (The Name of the Book): The Heir
Visible on the front cover and spine (the Name of the Author): Binger Ray
Visible on the front cover (The review): "It was a joy to read."-Rhonda, Editor, First Editing.com
Visible on the front cover and small at the base of the spine (The Words): A Novel
On The back of the cover this descriptive:

“Georgia Strawn is out of work mother. She was born on the family farm and was, at birth, given a psychic gift that she has been afraid to use since she was a child. Enter Jeff Swain, New Iberia's most recent transplant from Chicago. Transferred by his employer, he knows what it's like to want answers and would pay dearly for them-considering his former wife has killed their little boy. Can Georgia help Jeff find closure?”

“This story weaves together a group of colorful and unlikely individuals, who, in the end, find that friends can sometimes be just as dangerous as strangers.”

Use these Examples for Cover graphic Ideas:

The setting is on an Old farm with an old, wooden 1 story house (flat)
The main character is a black woman in her 30's who wears glasses
She wears a key around her neck
There is a lock box hidden under her bedroom floor which the key opens
She rides a bicycle for transportation
She is old fashioned
She has an 8 yr old son
There is talk of a fox and a hen house (Chicken coop)
There are an old country preacher, blood and demons mentioned in the book

I expect to see examples of what could potentially be my cover, watermarked of course, before making my decision of who gets the job.

I REPEAT: I Expect Examples of My Potential cover! (NOT of other covers that you have done for someone else)

I have perused many portfolios of "other people’s" book covers but they give me no idea of the creativity involved in your making MY cover for me.
My book, once again, took a year to write and is a labor of love, I expect the same. I do not expect a few cut copy and pasted vectors as an example, unless however, it is befitting of the job. I will not only PAY YOU, but within my book, on the copyrights page, I will list your name as the cover designer when it is available for purchase.

IMPORTANT: Sell MY NAME as well as THE TITLE.

Completion will be expected 10 days after hire. Payment will be on delivery Watermarks expected otherwise. My money is good and is shown in my points. No upfront money until you are chosen, and then, no more than 1/4 of the amount due.

See the added files for examples of what caliber and level of work I expect.
