I need a cover image for an ebook. The image will be included in the ePub file as the cover, and used on websites for promoting the book. The image should be provided as high resolution jpeg (minimum width 1400 pixels).
The image must include the book title and author's name, and suitable illustration or other design elements to draw in the intended readership.
Although I am looking for a book-size image, most people's first view is likely to be a thumbnail image in search results, so the design should work at thumbnail size.
Book title: The Barley-child
Author: Robyn Hogan
Primary readership: Women aged in 30s and 40s
Keywords: finding one's identity; family secrets; Australia; Italy
Blurb: Fidelma Dunne nursed her dying academic husband, Kevin, and is trying to pick up some literary work, remake a career for herself. Then her mother dies, leaving the question of her paternity ambiguous.
At the home town funeral, Del is told something that makes her mother's dying statement ring a little truer. She follows up with questioning her older sister, Anne, and a courtesy aunt, her mother's best friend, about the summer before her birth.
All the time she is worrying about who she is and following leads, she is also trying to establish herself as a researcher and writer. One commissioned task takes her to southern Italy and excerpts of her work, set in medieval Apulia, are included in the narrative.
The Barley-child, set over the years 1943 to 1992 and ranging from Sydney to Italy, is one woman's story of trying to re-build a meaningful life for herself.
“Went beyond the basics, to show an understanding of what was really needed.”
