My name is Anna, 25 years old, and I’m an author. I’m about to finish my first novel (genre: urban fantasy) which I will distribute as an e-book, so now I am looking for someone who would like to create a cover for it.
This is a paid commission and I will need rights on the cover you create. I might even like to get more illustrations for it (e.g. characters or places), but maybe only for private use.
Here is what I’m looking for:
I imagine the cover as a distanced view on a city, hidden between mountains. Maybe two characters are looking at it from a hill or something. But: I’m totally open for your suggestions, too; you are the artist after all!
Anyway, it would be great if you can draw landscapes (forests, mountains), buildings/cities and humans (can be a silhouette). The setting is Japan, so, well it should look like it’s set in Japan and it would be helpful if you know about Japanese landscapes and architecture. Manga/Anime-style is perfect. Also, I prefer digital art.
Here is the abstract of the book:
When Nicolas watches the seemingly normal girl Soe fight against some strange guys, he doesn’t know yet that he will spend the rest of his semester break in the hidden city Yamamachi. This is where Soe takes him because he has seen her, which may never happen. Soe is a descendant of the Senshi people, widely known as the legendary Ninjas. But their existence has to be kept secret from the outer world. And soon enough, Nicolas notices that her double identity is not Soe’s only secret…
So, there are ninjas, fights, secrets, a hidden city, and of course Japanese culture in this book. It will be for age 15 +.
Please be aware that I’m a German author, so the book is in German. I can provide you with an Expose and further details on the story and its characters in English though.
I plan on publishing the book in October/November, so you’d have enough time to design the cover even if you’re busy right now.
I would prefer it if you already have experience in designing e-book-covers. If you don’t, please make sure to inform yourself on the “rules” of e-book-covers.
Anyway: If you are interested, please comment samples of your work and roughly your commission. You can also send me a message if you like, especially if you have further questions.
I hope I didn’t miss anything and I’m looking forward to your offers.
