Sub title; The Guardians Series 1 Book 1
Author; Wendy Saunders
I am an independent author I write supernatural mystery/suspense/thriller/romance. My books are not intended for an audience of under 18 years old.
This book is the first of a five book series. It is set in the present day in a fictional town called Mercy in Massachusetts. The town was founded by the survivors of the Salem witch trials.
The story begins when my main character Olivia West returns to Mercy. She was born in Mercy but hasn't been back since the night her father murdered her mother when she was eight years old. But when she inherits a house from her Great Aunt she feels compelled to return.
Soon after she arrives back in Mercy residents start going missing but when the bodies start turning up in the woods near her house it seems there is a killer on the loose and he has taken an interest in Olivia.
The trouble is the murders are almost identical to a spate of murders twenty years earlier that stopped abruptly after her father was arrested for the murder of her mother.
The further she digs the more secrets she finds, as a descendant of a long line of witches she must embrace her power. Something is stirring in the woods, something evil and the murders are only just the start of it.
Along with Theodore Beckett a Witch Finder from seventeenth century Salem who has been pulled through time to help her, she must find out what really happened the night her mother died and uncover the dark secret her family has been hiding for the last three hundred years and stop a demon from rising.

I would like a book cover for Book 1 of a five book series. It needs to be for a paperback (8"by 5") and an E-book these are to be published through Createspace and kindle.
I'm looking for something maybe a bit moody and atmospheric but to be honest I am open to all ideas so be as creative as you like as long as it is eye-catching.
I've attached the description to go on the back cover below. (I've tried to cut it down as much as I can but if its a bit too long let me know and I'll change it.)
Crucial elements to the story are the house Olivia has inherited. It is a stick style house nestled against woods and on the shore of a lake. The house/woods/lake play an important part of the entire story arc spanning all five books.
There is also a clearing in the heart of the woods, its a circular clearing in which nothing will grow, even creatures won't venture into the circle. In the dead centre stands a gnarled creepy dead tree/hollow this marks the place of the devils trap where the demon is being held prisoner. When he finally rises a burning pentagram appears in the ground surrounding the tree.
There is a circular seal/brand which is important as it is found on all the murder victims and is the seal of the demon. It is circular and in it is two opposing serpents curving in an 's' shape and interlocking so it looks as if they form the infinity symbol.
Finally Olivia's 'power' is that she can control fire, not just any type of fire but different kinds of supernatural fire. For example, she can control witch fire which is lavender in colour, demon fire which is green, Hell fire which is blue/black, spirit fire which is silver and Earth fire which is your regular red/gold/yellow fire.
The story takes place late Autumn/winter.
Olivia is medium height slim build and has long dark wavy hair and gold coloured eyes.
As I mentioned earlier this is the first of a five book series and there will be the opportunity to work on subsequent books if interested.
