I need a cover for my book "9th Circle."
It is a literary thriller in the vein of the movie "7" and "Silence of the Lambs."
Therefore I do NOT want any gore!!!!!
Yes, the book is filled with a serial killer recreating the horrific images of the 9 Circles of Hell, but I do NOT want any blood or gore.
I have left examples of the type of stylized cover I am looking for.
Another tricky aspect of this book is that I do NOT want any supernatural elements. This book is set current day and has absolutely nothing supernatural about it.
It is a human killer trying to make his way to purgatory, however it is ALL current day!
The book is set in Seattle, however I would really rather not have the space needle on the cover.
Again I am looking for a New York publishing house quality, graphic interpretation of a literary horror novel. NOT a slasher cover :-)
I have attached my first impressions of the cover, however the winning cover will be far more textured and complex :-)
Here also are some links to some covers/movie posters that I find intriguing.
