Need a cover (ebook and print) for DOUBT, the third book in a series about a corporate spy. Please note that this book is part of a continuing series. We will need an additional two covers immediately (titles of books are FAKE and EXIT; all the books have one-word titles), with more to come in the next few months. This contest covers just one book; subsequent books will be by direct-contract (custom project) because we would like the same designer/look and feel for them all. Each of the books has an "international" element, with the primary character, Finn Teller, traveling to different countries. The author's website is www.twistphelan.com
DESCRIPTION OF DOUBT: Finn Teller is a corporate spy. So when her sister’s hedge-fund-honcho husband and four hundred million dollars disappear days before the feds break down his front door, she agrees to investigate. Was Denny Adams kidnapped? Or did he take the money and run? The FBI agent in charge of the case is convinced Denny was laundering money for terrorists, but Finn doesn’t buy it. Then Denny’s secretary turns up dead and he’s the chief suspect. Aided by her sister, Meg, and Meg’s teenage stepson with his own secret, Finn uncovers a larger conspiracy that reaches from the White House to Eastern Europe. Friends become enemies, and only by using her wits and training can Finn unravel the scheme, clear Denny’s name, and save Meg’s family. "DOUBT provides an action-packed introduction to a new and capable hero you'll want to see again. Finn Teller is intelligent, independent, and as inventive in a tight spot as MacGyver. “Financial thriller" might be an oxymoron in less capable hands—Twist Phelan has the expertise and skill to keep the pedal to the metal from beginning to end." —Jan Burke, Edgar Award-winning and New York Times-bestselling author ADDITIONAL INFORMATION BASED ON QUESTIONS RECEIVED For the print cover dimensions, please use 6x9 for the cover; I'll post the spine dimensions as soon as I have them. For the ebook, dimensions are 2820 x 4500 pixels. The book is set in the modern day (the year is not exactly specified, but assume it to be 2015). Details about Finn's appearance are in the doc file attached to the brief, under "Physical Characteristics" at the end :)

Working with Elena has been a DREAM! She was always responsive to input, provided superb feedback, and delivered everything exactly as she said she would. She even offered to help with additional tweaks in the next couple of days, just in case I needed. What a superb artist. Thank you!
