Assorted book covers. (Female models of various ethnicities.)

I write for a living, and I use stock photos for the covers of my ebooks. Unfortunately, I'm having trouble finding photos that suit my needs for a few of my upcoming books.

For all photos:
- Vertical photo orientation preferred.
- Plain background preferred.
- I'm willing to combine two photos if I can do so without too much difficulty.

Cover One:
- Two women (preferably looking at each other or interacting romantically)
- Age: 20~40
- Race: African American woman (preferably with cornrows or natural hair), Caucasian woman (preferably with red or reddish curls; hooked nose a bonus)
- Clothing: Something that could fit in a post-apocalyptic setting. Tank tops, for example.
- Build: The women can be any build.
- Other: Tattoos are not an issue. Color scheme isn't particularly an issue, either.

Cover Two:
- Two women (preferably looking at each other or interacting romantically)
- Age: 20~40
- Race: Japanese
- Clothing: Bonus points for anything even remotely steampunk.
- Build: The women can be any build.
- Other: No visible tattoos, please. Color scheme isn't particularly an issue.

For now, I'll leave it at these two, but any images with Japanese men/women/children that have steampunk elements would also be highly appreciated. I'm writing a steampunk novella series set in Japan during the Meiji Restoration. M/M, F/F, and M/F couples will feature in various stories, but I'll also be writing non-romantic novellas.

Anyway, please let me know if you have any questions. This is my first time posting here, so I hope that this format is all right.

The photographs in your collection look great, but they don't quite fit my requirements at the moment. I'll certainly keep the collection in mind for future novels, though, thank you.

I've got this picture of two women romantically watching each other. It hasn't a steampunk atmosphere, but you could insert some steampunk background if you wish.

Angelaostafichuk: Both pictures are gorgeous. I'll definitely take them into consideration! Thank you very much for sharing them, and I'm sorry that I was unable to reply for a few days. (Traveling for the holidays.)

Mrkornflakes: Thank you for sharing that image. I'll look into that one and the others with the same models; I might have a story they'd suit.

Kunoxian: Here is a link to the works I've written thus far. Not all have romance, and many more will be coming out this year, but maybe one will strike your fancy. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions!

I've written some science fantasy, myself. (The short story bundle called Pendular Motion.) All the best of luck with your future writing endeavors! Feel free to contact me if you pursue Kindle Direct Publishing; I've published through it twice, so I may be able to help.

That would be lovely if you could manage that. I'm trying to figure out whether I ought to save up for a month's subscription... If I do that, I'll probably download all of the images in March, so that's the most likely deadline. What would you plan for an image?
