What's your vision?
I need a cover for my new book, Stranded Naked Blues. This is book 3 in my Wes Darling Mystery Series. This book begins at the Stranded Naked Cheeseburger Beach Party in the Bahamas. This is a boater's party (no nudity involved). The main character in the series lives and travels on a sailboat (sloop). The story ends with the main character stranded alone on an island during a hurricane. A treasure map, a buried treasure (gold coins), and several murders are part of the story, and any of these items could but do not have to be built into the cover. My protagonist is a thirty-something ex-P.I. who lives on a sailboat and travels by boat to different locations where he is dragged into a bad situation, usually by a beautiful woman. Each of the books in this series is laced with subtle humor, unique characters, beautiful women, and dangerous situations. I would like a tropical/island setting. (The Bahama Islands) A touch of humor in the cover would be a plus.
I have downloaded copies of of the covers currently in use for my other 2 Wes Darling books, Key Lime Blues (set in Key West) and Dog River Blues (set in a marina on the Dog River off Mobile Bay in Alabama). Stranded Naked Blues is set in the Bahamas. I am considering redoing the current covers if the contest cover lends itself to branding my name and the series.
