kristofer X got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Book cover: A novel on how the perfect crime becomes the ultimate revenge
Check out kristofer X's Book cover contest…
Davinci manages the rights for the novel that the book cover contest is for and the book will be published and distributed by another publishing company. The novel will have nationwide distribution backed by a major marketing campaign. This is what we believe the target audience looks like: - 25-45 years old - Strives to be sucessful, puts efforts in their career - Has an entrepreneurial spirit - Strong individuals with a personal drive -Enjoys stories like The Shawshank redemption, Breaking Bad, Count of Monte Cristo, The Millenium triology etc. where someone wins by being smart rather than being powerful
What's your vision?
We need a book cover for a Swedish writer, publishing his first novel. STORYLINE: The book is set in the posh quarters of Stockholm and the story revolves around a 35 year old man, happily married with a well paid job at a hedge fund. However, the couple´s appetite for a good life leads him into dodgy business to make extra money. Doing this he discovers that his boss is a big crook using him as a scapegoat for making millions in illegal insider trading. Our hero goes to jail, losing everything but in jail he makes a cunning plan for revenge to destroy his enemy, get his wife back and to make enough money to leave the game for good. ESSENCE OF THE STORY: The essence of the story is never to give up or let anyone stand in the way of your dreams, even how dark the future looks and how evil and strong your enemies are. As long as you´re smart enough to create a plan, there is always a weak spot in your opponent that you can leverage. In this case the weak spot is greed. For him, greed got him into trouble but realizing that, he turns the same weapon to his enemy creating an epic revenge.
NOTES ON THE COVER: • The cover needs to stand out and catch the eye. • The hero in the book creates a very clever plan in the story, so if there is a smart twist to the cover it would be great. • The most important thing is that it conveys a feeling. • The story is set in a posh environment, but I´m thinking we should stay away from the obvious clichés. • It is a story aimed for a large audience and the story in itself is very cinematic. So it needs to have a broad approach and I don´t think there is any contradiction between a great story and a very commercial approach. STYLE: • I want something modern and simplistic. • People should feel cool and smart when they sit at the airport reading it and bypassers see the cover! The title of the book is "Den som gapar efter mycket", which is a proverb meaning something like "If you are too greedy, you will lose it all" -- Breaking through as an unknown writer is very hard and everyone is telling me that "don´t expect too much" But, just as the story in the novel, I believe that nothing is impossible. I have created a grand plan for the launch, surpassing much of what even the largest publishers invest in launching books for very famous writers. I believe in the story, just as much as I believe that the book can be a success. The book has been in a previous 99designs contest, but the story has developed since then and new stakeholders have come in to the project which makes us want to get a fresh view on the cover.
