This is my third project with Wild Women Designs and as always I have received a great, timely, professional service. I recommend her to all my writer friends in need of a designer.

This is for print and ebook. I am organizing the contest on behalf of the author. Here is info from her:
The first ebook cover is attached. (This is Marquel: A Romantic Suspense.) I am not necessarily wanting the fonts or designs similar. I can't say if the cover has been successful? I polled people and they wanted a photo design versus illustration. The print cover for Marquel is an illustration. The print book does get good feedback when I am at signings.
Design elements for new cover.
The new cover photo is below. (This is the girl in a peach dress on the beach. I'll get a higher-res image if I can.)
In the photo, you see hills in the left corner, I would like the Hollywood sign there perhaps or I don't know if there is anything else that should be added that is Hollywood related. The Hollywood sign is related to the story.
There is a shadowy man on motorcycle stalking the lead, if it makes sense to incorporate.
The St. Blair cover gets lots of comments! It is a great design. I want to repeat that success as far as a cover that grabs readers.
I've attached the first book cover as well as the St. Blair cover she
mentioned has done well (that was a 99Designs contest winner). I'll
send the book synopsis for the back cover as soon as I get it. Thanks
bunches & good luck!
Update from 12/2: I added more pictures from the author. They're of
her daughter, and the author has indicated a strong preference for
using one of them vs. another model. Thanks!
