We are looking for a full cover wrap for our upcoming title: Wait For It! by A. L. Glennon. This is a young adult contemporary fantasy novel. We are looking for a waiting room fantasy feel for the cover. Please see the attached images for reference -- but feel free to be creative as well.
The three main character’s feet/legs could be shown in their distinctive clothing, of course. Even a blank waiting room might work if it fits (or at least doesn’t contradict) the description of a glass door with WAITING written on it and features gray upholstered chairs with well-worn seats.
Zelda is dressed in Renaissance/Medieval red dress with gold, Martin is dressed in plain khaki pants, sneakers, and a hooded Honor Society sweatshirt , and Zeke is dressed in dirty, dark skinny jeans, black V-neck tee, and black boots.
Below is the synopsis of the book that will be used on the back cover:
When a freak bathroom accident cuts his Earthly life short, academic bowl team captain Martin Van Assen is surprised to find himself languishing in the waiting room of the Soul Reassignment Office with only the overly dramatic Zelda Kozikowski and her maybe-ex-boyfriend, the oft-reincarnated Zeke Zabar, for company. The unlikely trio gets tired of sitting around with nothing to do but bicker while they wait to start new lives, and sneaks through a portal that takes them back to Earth in ghostly form. The search for meaning in their previous lives takes these three lost souls on the journey of an afterlifetime, all the way to the infernally warm intake office of Hell itself. Martin, Zelda, and Zeke might figure a few things out along the way, but none of it will matter much if they have to spend eternity in a pit of fire. Or worse.
