I would like two ebook covers designed (with a possibility of more in
the series) for existing novels - The Taming of the Bastard and The
Bastard Takes a Wife. Both books are Chicklit/Romantic Comedy/Humorous
romance with the first book centring on the couple becoming a couple
and the second on problems surrounding the organisation of their
wedding. The covers I have at the moment are straight from a stock
photo site and thus look unprofessional but I don't want anything
romance-ish. They have to be fun and quirky with cute fonts and tie
into each other so that the series is easily recognisable. As and
example, the style of covers I like are those by author Jill Mansell,
Lindsay Kelk and Rachel Schurig.
The blurbs for each book are as follows
The Taming of the Bastard
Nanny-slash-waitress, Millie McIntyre thinks she has her life all
mapped out. All it will take is a small mortgage, a fat deposit and a
lot of luck. Then, she'll be off living her dream life, running a B &
B in Bali. That is, of course, after she learns how to cook something
other than steamed vegetables and organic chicken.
Nobody warned her about Sam though. He's new to The Lederhosen and his
presence has everyone in a spin, including Millie.
Sam is cute. Sam is intelligent. Sam has lovely muscles which Millie
finds utterly distracting.Yet, despite his obvious appeal, Sam has one
massive flaw. He has an ego the size of Western Australia and even
worse, he plays Rugby Union.
Could Sam be the one who will ruin all Millie's life plans? Is she
really smitten with a man who loves Bruce Willis and proudly proclaims
his abilty to burp the national anthem?
One thing's for sure.... something has got to change.
The Bastard Takes a Wife
At last... the hilarious sequel to The Taming of the Bastard!
Yes, Sam and Millie are back, along with all their friends from the
first book and a few new ones. And this time, they're planning a
Sam has popped the question and Millie has agreed.... well, in theory.
All she wants is a sunset ceremony in Kings Park with a tasteful
reception afterwards. It doesn't take her long, however, to realise
that there are expectations surrounding these nuptials and none of
them are hers. Sam's money might be able to buy Millie anything she
wants but she never pictured herself as a minor celebrity.
From small and elegant, Millie watches as her wedding spirals into out
of control tacky. Hideous invitations, cinderella coaches and a
fifteen thousand dollar wedding cake are enough to stress Millie to
the tip of her glitter sandals. No one seems to care. Not even Sam.
There's also the added stress of Sam's mother and sister, who see her
as unsuitable and will do almost anything to get rid of her.
A wedding on the beach in Bali would have been so much easier.
