Book cover design for novel: "Silk"
Against the high stakes backdrop of Americas love affair with silk during the Roaring 20s and Japans booming silkworm industry desperately trying to satisfy it, Aiko Sato, a shy, self-conscious Japanese girl emerges from her cocoon to become a fiercely independent woman who must save her familys centuries-old silk company, when a Tokyo conglomerate threatens to swallow it up, silkworms, mulberry leaves, and all.
Forbidden to compete in a mans world, she disguises herself as the enemy and sails to America to sell her familys silk direct to a New York merchant. But when a Chicago mob hijacks the multi-million dollar silk train racing coast-to-coast, all bets are off. She must get it back with the help of her American security chief, Jack Kelly, and Al Capone, too, who help this tough but tender fighter turn tragedy into triumph, and her wildest dreams for love and success into happy reality.
Silk is a coming-of-age story wrapped in action-adventure and surrounded by historic characters who are alive and kicking in the booze-and-broads world of the Charleston age when silk was silk, blood was blood, and love showed up in the damnedest places.

We Like These Examples
Attached my self-designed cover, but want Art Deco, "Roaring '20s," gangster feel, with Japanese Geisha overtones. Maybe monochrome with color touches in title.
