Make the cover design grab my target audience's attention, raise their curiosity and immediately cause them to ask questions like: What is a "Talking Palm?" How can a coconut talk about childhood storms?
I want readers to pick up the book while they are brimming with the crackling questions and dash to the checkout line.
The design cannot contain licensed products. The design will be my company's logo and must be exclusively mine.
The front cover picture/image should include at least a picture/illustration of a mature coconut. If you can show the coconut's eyes and still have a beautiful cover, that would be perfect.
In my novel, the protagonist saw a mature coconut, which triggered her memory of childhood experiences, many of which involved the coconut in one form or another. (see excerpt attachments)
In this autobiographical novel, the main female character grew up in the Caribbean.
I like smooth primary colors and a neat, minimalist cover design.
Design the cover for print and ebook.
