I need a professional book cover designed, back and front and spine. It needs to be commercial, beautiful and fit with the genre.
So make sure you are familiar with professional book covers in the genres listed.
This will be for an ebook as well as a print book.
About the story:
Five sisters leave their isolated farm to brave a planet violently in tune with the psyche. A Where the Wild Things Are inspired adventure story, with talking beasts, swords and sisterhood.
This book is in the fantasy/sci-fi/adventure genres.
It was inspired by Where the Wild things Are make of that what you will
There are beast characters and human characters
Main characters descriptions: (I’ve listed them from most important to least)
Zelda: Female, 20 years old, Long, dark almost black hair, harsh features, shadows under her eyes – For this character I have attached an inspiration picture. Will have a bow and arrow.
Rar: Girl, 15 years old. Crazy, dirt brown hair. Rough and masculine. Will be carrying a dagger and spears.
Tam: 22 years old, short smooth brown hair. Soft kind eyes. Will be long and elegant. **she will be carrying a rifle.
Tam will be carrying Xandy.
Mye: 8 years old. Smooth brown hair, large brown eyes. Will be carrying a small bow and look the most frightened.
Xandy: 4 years old. Messy brown hair sticking up. Stern expression. Will be carried by Tam.
Clothes: They will be wearing strong leathers that a warrior might wear
Marnie: Female. Long and white. Walks on all fours. With an old face and wise blue eyes. Think the luck dragon in the never ending story.
Holt: Huge and blond shaggy hair with haphazard sharp teeth. Has a similar body structure to Carol in where the wild things are.
Rosie: Has a long snout. Black fur and long black talons. Has flowers in the fur around her neck.
They are huge, think the size of WTWTA again.
You need to capture that they live on another planet and that the beasts are intelligent, think Where the Wild things Are type beasts.
It has a ruthless, huge growing wilderness that has a mind of its own.
The whole planet is reactive to the mind.
**The planet is completely overgrown and covered with green. This is quite important to the story.
***If this is helpful, the planet has 11 moons
Things you might like to include:
Black crystals and pink crystals are important to the story

Required on the back cover:
Space to insert a blurb later
I trust you creative designers to come up with something great but I do have some ideas.
I think all five sisters should be included and at least one beast. I believe they should be in action.
Maybe: All five girls running in the foreground, with Zelda in the middle. A giant black beast behind them chasing them.
But I trust your ideas. So if you have a creative idea, give it a go. I'm open to it.
I have attached some great covers to take inspiration. I would like more action than the Darkfire one and I would like it to be less childish than the land of stories one.
