Style and Content
What colors do you want to see in your design?
Sunset oranges and blacks but not tied completely to those colors especially if the iron gates are used for the cover. Whatever colors that evoke mysterious, fantasy, and exciting sensation along with formal, iron, entrance gates is what I'm thinking about.
The first chapter and last chapter involve passing by partially opened, iron entrance gates on a driveway to an estate.
Title in a bright orange using Garamond font over a black background.
Another possible idea is a male and female silhouette on a beach at sunset, but I'm not tied into that at all. The couple are 18 year olds, young, uninhibited, and in love.
What colors do you NOT want to see in your design?
Purple, violet, pink
