What 3 things would you like to communicate to your readers with this design?
Here's the picture for the cover that I have in mind:
Imagine you're sitting in the driver's seat of a car and you look over into the passenger's seat. A young, curvacious woman (think Anna Nicole Smith) is sitting in the passenger's seat of a car, wearing REALLY short blue jean cut-offs (with those little white threads), a threadbare white t-shirt (midriff) that's ripped in the front revealing excessive cleavage (she's got DD breasts), maybe even show some nipple through the threadbare t-shirt. The t-shirt has a picture of a cowboy with a bushy beard, sunglasses and cowboy hat (it's actually supposed to be Hank Williams Jr.) Her bare feet are propped up, maybe on the dashboard. She has dark hair, but PLEASE cut the picture off near her chin, it's important that you cant see her face. Make it really sexy! She's a prostitute, so she can be trashy. She needs to seem country/Southern. She is holding a green Blowpop lollipop in one hand, and a cradling a copy of MOBY DICK in the other hand. Maybe a faint road map design in the background of the cover, because the book's about a road trip.
