I'm a twenty-five year old from NSW, Australia. I've been writing for approximately ten years, and now I’m choosing to self publish my debut novel. If you're interested, you can find out more about me by visiting my website http://www.madelinedrew.com and looking for my about section.
Ficción, Joven adulto
Descripción del libro
When the three of us got here everything was white and everything sucked.
Good thing I’m a genius and I figured out how to get rid of the awful white.
But, we’re still stuck here, which is s**t. Especially because Layla and Aaron keep flirting and I’m third wheeling.
This place is kind of a big deal, so I made Layla write about it. The content in this book is what she came up with… But she can’t have credit for everything. I helped. A little.
Anyway, read this.
Público al que se apunta

Diseño de inspiración
Love the font and the ‘peek through’ look. Maybe the white is peeling back to reveal the colourful land they’ve created - rainforest, mountain, buildings, a park?
I really love this. It’s fun but so simple. Pull a few words from the first chapter?
It’s so busy, it’s hectic. It goes against my original thoughts for minimal, but I feel like Miles definitely made this - Miles coming through on the cover is more important than the minimal design.
I love this design because it’s simple, eye catching and focuses on displaying a few themes of the novel. Think an eagle in flight, a parachute, a letter addressed to Layla, Aaron and Miles..
Looks hand drawn. Nice and simple.
This font looks great!
Miles can draw. This is what his drawings would look like. He’d draw an eagle in flight, a parachute, a rainforest, a monkey.
Fonts compliment one another perfectly. I could see the water being replaced with a rainforest and the centre focus being whiteness.
Again it looks Handwritten, rushed! I like that there isn’t a visual hint towards the books content. I adore this font it's very permanent marker/sharpie style.
I dislike this font. But love the concept of a very white background with Miles falling, to his death because his parachute failed.
This font Is amazing! I mostly love the alternation between caps and normal and the changing colours.
Font heaven! This is what I like!
I really love that there’s nothing aside from the handwritten title!
Id imagine Miles would write like this font if using caps
This is my favourite of all uploads. I love this. It’s rushed, sarcastic, handdrawn.. It’s what Miles would do after being fed up with being told to design the cover. Follow this as your main inspiration and I'll be pleased.
Great font, great design.
¿Qué colores quieres que tenga tu diseño?

Ligeros y neutrales
Otros requisitos relativos al color
Don’t be afraid to splash around some colour.
The background should be mostly white.
Blue is a re-occurring colour in the novel, but Miles loves Orange and Yellow.

Necesidades de diseño
Miles is the star character. I would love for readers to believe Miles has 'designed' the cover. He'd rush it, and probably make a few mistakes, but it would still look great. See the 2nd attachment.
Ideally the designer will come up with a book cover that can be adapted to fit each 'colour' theme (bk 1 - white, bk 2 - grey, bk 3 - black), and therefore would receive design work for all three titles in the series.
The book will be paperback, most likely normal trade format.
Focus on attracting a young adult eye.
Focus on recreating the inspiration covers (especially the fonts).
Lo que debe evitarse
Avoid showing faces or too much detail if including visuals of people/characters.
I'd prefer to see more words and less images (repeat 'the white' over and over?)
This is the first chapter if you're interested.
Layla annoys Miles as she encourages him to design the cover and name their book.
