I am starting a mystery/crime magazine. I need a cover template. There will be different artwork used every issue. You work will be credited in every issue.
The magazine will come out four times a year. I need a template that is suitable for the mystery genre, that has space for the title of the issue as well as for the artwork.
This magazine has to appeal to mystery readers, who tend to be older and well-educated.
The cover needs to have the name of that particular issue. The first four issues are:
Sins of the Father
The cover must have the name of the magazine on it: Mystery, Crime, and Mayhem. Extra points if you also develop a logo for MCM. Plus the issue number and name.
There also needs to be a place where we list names of authors who are in the issue, plus a separate line for "Essay by:"
The issues will be dark, light, and everything in between.
