Title: Halloween is for Lovers
Written by: Nate Gubin
optional taglines: Happily ever after... after.
Death reigns supreme but love conquers all.
I originally envisioned the cover having a 20 something couple passionately kissing in a foggy graveyard.
Then I thought about having the couple in Halloween costumes passionately kissing. The male dressed as a zombie, the female dressed as a princess.
A foggy graveyard that fades to white at the edges?
The files I uploaded are my hack attempts at promo pieces for the work in progress.
Here's my "place holder" web site for the book: http://web.me.com/nategubin/Site_3/cover...
