Hello, I am hoping that one of the talented artist here on Dreamstime would consider designing me a royalty free image, to use as a cover for my first book. I have included the link which should take you directly to a short preview of the first story, in the hope that if anyone is interested in creating a cover, there is an option to read the initial chapters and get a feel of the characters and thread of the details in order to help with the creation. I am currently using a temporary cover but unfortunately I feel that it doesn't quite draw the attention of the potential reader.
Sorry...I have just tried clicking on the above link and for some reason it tells you that the server is not found. However if you copy and paste into say, yahoo or google the link does take you directly to the story.
Hi, ideally I was looking at something quite simple on a black background. the main features are the very pale blue eyes, and also an eternal knot, which is a very intricate pure cletic knot. I was toying with the image being black and white, on a black background, but as I say Eternal Hope is the first book in the Eternal saga, and so something that could be carried on and recognised throughout the whole story would be excellent. but also something that is unique and not too twilight/fifty shades! at the moment I just can't decide and stick to one idea, and that was the reason I decided to ask someone who could maybe read the beginning of the book for the first time and come up with a fresh idea.
as for a deadline, I need to submit everything and order a proof copy of the finished book and then ideally have it completely finished by early November.
Not sure if this image could help. Just trying... :) BTW it's not yet available on DT https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10151637562086733&set=a.10151399741136733.1073741826.513661732&type=1&theater

I had decided to try not to use images of specific people for the cover if possable because the story is written with only an outline of the characters physical semblance, so that the reader is able to create their own image of the character.
I have tried to find something very similar to the image that I have had in mind to try and at least give some idea as to one possability, but if anyone has any other suggestions I'm all ears!
The image of the eyes is one that I have had in mind from the beginning as it represents Caleb, the second character in the story. Perhaps instead of the girl, an image of Charlottes gravestone could replace it. The significance of the eyes is that Caleb is Charlotte's protector, more importantly this image could carry on throughout the story so that the cover is recognisable, because as the story progresses his eyes change slightly ie. injury, colour...
sorry to ramble on but I am just trying to give as mutch help as I can.
