Estella was wonderful to work with. She's clearly creative, skilled, and knowledgable. And patient! When I made a minor mistake in the size requirements in my initial ask, she made a quick correction. Definitely recommend!
He did a good job following my suggestions. Quick responses and easy to communicate with about making small changes.

How Alex Wagner started their book cover journey
Mord im Okzident Express
Alex Wagner ist a mystery writer from Austria.
first (short) novel (approx. 150 pages) in a contemporary (cosy) crime series with an amateur/private sleuth. new installments every 2 months (more design work needed :)).
the story is set in a modern luxury train based on the orient express. poisonous spiders and a micro-robot are involved in an Agatha Christie style murder plot. it´s a murder in the family. the setting (outside the train) is the austrian country side (mountains) during a heavy snowstorm. the amateur detective is a young woman who is quite nosey and somewhat nerdy. :)
fans of (cozy) crime (series), fans of (amateur/private) detective and mystery fiction, fans of shorter reads (approx. 150 pages)
What colors do you want to see in your design?
looking for a cover that signals the cosy crime genre very clearly (see pictures provided). maybe featuring a train station (of the smaller country variety), inside or outside (on a platform?) ... but open for other suggestions. :)
