What's your vision?
Looking for a convincing cover for a new german psychothriller to be published as ebook and print version. I don't have the final metrics yet.
I need a thrilling Bookcover for a psychothriller. It is about a scientist working with genetic engeneering and believes that he can initiate a new evolutionary step with his research (that's why the press calls him the new messiah). But something really strange happens to him right in the beginning of the story: he wakes up in a hotel-room and finds out that he lost one year (he can not remember what has happened). He looks totally different now with a beard and strange old clothes (normally he used to wear designer colthes, expensive suits etc). So the question is: What has happend? Well, love plays a crucial role here. But this love results in a brutal murderer. The book plays in munich and zurich, so in citys. There ist a lot of paranoia in the book. Somebody feels whatched. The main protagonist doesn't really know who he is. He doesn't know if he is on the good or on the bad side. Somehow he is chasing himself. Would be cool when this mood can be transported to the cover. The bookcover needs a white background (maybe with a structure) and black or red typos. The authors name is: Markus Ridder. It can be stressed on the second name: RIDDER. The name of the book is: „Das Messias-Projekt“. „Das“ is the article and can be written smaller. Translation: The Messiah Project. We need the genre on the title: „Psychothriller“ This is are cool covers: http://www.amazon.de/Blood-Snow-Der-Auftrag-Thriller-ebook/dp/B00WWNQ5AM/ref=zg_bs_5870289031_5 http://www.amazon.de/Kr%C3%A4henmutter-Thriller-Catherine-Shepherd-ebook/dp/B016UKKMEM/ref=zg_bs_5870295031_1 http://www.amazon.de/Gebrannte-Kinder-Psychothriller-Inca-Vogt-ebook/dp/B00R83PW3M/ref=zg_bs_5870305031_1 ... but please feel free to develop your own creative idea.
