Dynasty Effect in collaboration with Meridia Publishers - http://www.dynastyeffect.com
I am Paul, co-founder of Dynasty Effect, which is a lifestyle brand with the attitude of do good to others and have fun in the process. We create and endorse various avenues of entertainment. Lately, we have involved ourselves in Publishing.
My father, Al, finished his long awaited novel "Devil's Eye". He is an award winning, two-time published author and this is his first work of fiction. It is an instant classic, a true delight to read. Amazing work of good vs evil.
My father has been in the game a long time and recently started his own publishing company.
The personality we are trying to get across is spy novel mystery. Below is the synopsis:
"In November of 1958 the presence of the Devil's Eye was gifted to the people of the United States. It pulsated an ancient curse.
Ever since then, the U.S. has had a procession of internal and external setbacks and tragedies that have changed the course of its progressive history.
Colonel Christopher Caine is a commando in the ultra-secret Omega Group, tasked to prevent the theft of nuclear weapons. Dr. Laura Mitchell, is a beautiful and self-assured scholar of French History.
Can they unravel a quick succession of bizarre accidental deaths of senior American officials before an inevitable nuclear surrender of America into evil hands reaching out from ancient times?"
This is an existing target market of fiction novel enthusiasts. The target audience of this book is 18-34 year old males and females. People that are looking for an entertaining read. Something that moves like a movie. Think "Da Vinci Code."
I have created a basic "wireframe" of the website to give you a nice idea about what direction we like. You can view it here: https://gomockingbird.com/mockingbi…c3rtrp/114
Want the background or the sides to really capture the essence of the book.
The middle is where the content will be along with the image of the book cover. If you can take the image of the book cover and make it look like a 3-dimensional book (book image), that will help your chances of winning significantly.
Choice of themes or backgrounds (no particular order):
-Similar theme as cover
-Creative inspiration from synopsis
-Capitol Building (Washington, D.C. reference)
-Faces or people (Must be able to use freely)
-Desert Mountain Monastery/Desert
