What do you need?
I need an illustrated cover for "Valentina Goldman Ships Out," a novel that is a sequel to the best-selling "Valentina Goldman's Immaculate Confusion," both by Marisol Murano. We are producing the book as an eBook and print-on-demand on CreateSpace.
I need you to design it for CreateSpace (front, spine and back) and deliver a PSD layered file (but not in groups) so that we can edit text.
Who Is Your Audience?
Women, age 24 - 50. People who have read Bridget Jones Diary, Devil Wears Prada, and of course, the first book, VALENTINA GOLDMAN'S IMMACULATE CONFUSION.
We Like These Examples
I am attaching a CREATIVE BRIEF document that has examples of other book covers we like. Plus, since this cover is a sequel to VALENTINA GOLDMAN'S IMMACULATE CONFUSION, it should have some visual reference to it.
We Absolutely Must Have
I have attached a CREATIVE BRIEF with a lot of this info, but:
(1) We want an illustrated character similar but not identical to the photo-illustration in the first book's cover.
(2) She should have the same attitude pout /sneer with the lip that she had in the first book cover.
(3) The cover should evoke travel on a cruise ship -- i.e., she is wearing sunglasses, and having a boat in the background similar to the vintage cruise line posters..
(4) The text and copy is in the CREATIVE BRIEF document attached.
(5) As an editable PSD file, in layers. No grouped layers please. I am attaching a template for CreateSpace for the cover dimensions.
