What's your vision?
Book cover for a coming-of-age novel that is set in a rural town in Australia in the late 1970s. Protagonist is a girl encountering domestic violence and limitations based on her gender. This book is an exploration of her attempt to break free. Please note that this is NOT fantasy or sci-fi.
The heat is a big factor in this book, as is the river just out of town. The protagonist feels she's drowning, hence the name of the book is "Floating Upstream". She feels that life is always about trying to make your way against the current. It's important to capture the feeling of hot weather, friendship among 17 year-old girls, growing up in the 1970s. The cover should have a vintage look about it. Here are some examples of covers I love: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/68/bf/de/68bfde1cbc0ac00cec1cc3126647d100.jpg http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-d2-xk3xFAbY/UFELHG7818I/AAAAAAAAAC8/D_Io4-WR3NQ/s1600/OLD+VS.png http://www.google.com.au/imgres?imgurl=http://magicoficecream.files.wordpress.com/2011/05/virgin_suicides_poster.jpg&imgrefurl=https://www.pinterest.com/psychodelikatny/movie-posters/&h=755&w=534&tbnid=SSQdvCUtOFxI6M:&zoom=1&docid=9volA_-71Hj5OM&ei=OFAbVdmeHM2B8gWNh4CABQ&tbm=isch&ved=0CEgQMyglMCU http://www.flyleafbooks.com/sites/flyleafbooks.com/files/Aworldaway_cover_8_11_11.jpg http://www.google.com.au/imgres?imgurl=https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/8d/73/9a/8d739a094979cec0e69c3a27438a492c.jpg&imgrefurl=https://www.pinterest.com/lpsimone/ya-fantasy/&h=356&w=236&tbnid=B7hLEl4D0jjBkM:&zoom=1&docid=Oip9bOShxi9kyM&itg=1&ei=aFMbVa-LNYWY8QXKlIGABw&tbm=isch&ved=0CGYQMyheMF44yAE

Andrew is extremely talented. He has designed the covers for all four books in my Thomerion series of interactive novels and blown he away with his eye for detail, color sensibilities and dramatic style. Further, he is professional and a good communicator. Would hire again and again!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
