The book, a novel, is about a girl named Saar who is being abused by her dad from age 6 - 15. At night, when she sees the shade of her father in the doorway, she knows she can't escape.
During her dad's 'visits', she mentally flees to a (fantasy) hole in an oak/pine forest. From time to time, she occasionally is accompanied by a wolf.
The target audience is everyone from 30 - 90 years old with an interest in fantasy and a 'heavier' story then just a novel.
The book is called: nu is het genoeg (In English: Now it's enough). The publisher will create the colofon, so there needs to be space for the title and my name.
I would like to issue a threatening atmosphere as a cover. Of course, the intention of the design is that people become curious and want to know what the book is about.
Here are some ideas of my own:
- "The Scream" by Edvard Munch
- A bird or a crouching girl in a cage, with grasping hands around or 'flying' to the cage.
- The cave in the forest. But not to dark and it shouldn't look like a book about nature.
I've put some ideas as a attachment, but all ideas are welcome!
The size should be A5 by the way!
