I would like an ebook front cover (suitable for Amazon Kindle Direct
Publishing) for my children's book, The Christmas Curse. The book is
aimed at ages 7-10.
The story features a twin brother and sister: John (age 10, chubby,
dark hair, blue eyes), and Laura (age 10, auburn hair, brown eyes,
freckles); and a talking Christmas tree called Mr Tree. I would like
the tree and book title to be most prominent on the cover, with the
children also featuring.
The tree is a traditional fur, around 8ft tall, which comes alive in
the story. He is in proportion to a human, with a head at the top,
including a mouth but no visible eyes, ears or nose. I would like it
to have two little branches as eyebrows to convey expression. He has a
gold star at the top, and is decorated with gold beads and baubles.
This book is a magical tale, with lots of festive fun and the cover
-should have vibrant festive colours including red. I would like the
cover to look modern and appeal to today's children - cartoon style
rather than a traditional watercolour illustration. The book is set in
modern-day England and should capture the magic and fun of the season.
The book is a light-hearted comedy for children; it is in no way
sinister (i.e no references to witchcraft or black magic).
- I'd like my name at the bottom of the cover.
- Having seen a few examples, I'd like the primary background cover to
- The description of kids and tree must be followed, and the tree
needs to look alive.
