I'm falling behind on nano so i want a cover for inspo lol

Title: The Truth About Samantha
Author: A.R.Willows
An 18 year old boy named Jess learns that his next door neighbor, Samantha, is not only the love of his life, but his sister, causing what he once thought was a stable and manageable life to turn upside down in a world of confusion, panic and therapy. Jess attends college hoping to get his life back under control, only to find himself, once again, thrown into an unfair system where bad luck just keeps happening to him. As he struggles to stay afloat in the storm, Jess may just find love in another, and learn to understand his new feelings for Samantha.
Genres/Themes: Literary Fiction, Drama, NA, coming of age, poc, lgbt
NOTE: please add your wackywriters username small, in the corner of the cover

Inspo type things: I’m thinking this should be a typography based cover, or something done with artwork, not irl people.(but it could be a photograph edited with photoshop to look like art if that makes sense) (note, jess is a poc, samantha is Caucasian) I don’t know why but the color pink is really sticking out here in my mind
I’m kind of feeling something like this

sketched it in 5 secs flat

but go freaking wild, im so open to ideas! you can always pitch a sketch to me to see if i like the idea

payment…um…this is the hard part cuz I have ZERO time to read anymore, but if i select one I could make that person a logo( i designed the banners for wacky pumpkin and wackynano)


Boop!(because i only seem to make topics when the site is dead)

I’m thinking of doing this, though note the thinking lol I have no idea if I’ll have time. Can you describe the characters a bit more?

Yeah ofc lol
I don’t think I have any set in stone written “this is what they look like” So this is mess with able as im coming up with it off the top of my head!

  • For Samantha: I think she’s tall. By tall i mean 5’5” so maybe that’s not tall but it is to me lol. I think she also has strawberry blonde hair in the summer that goes a little brown in the winter. She has brown eyes, the same dark shade as her father and Jess. She kinda looks like the movie Lily Evans in my head???
  • For Jess, he’s tawny, kind of harvest moon in skin whereas Samantha is more pale, they both have warm toned skin though. He’s only slightly taller than Samantha. His hair is like a poof that he likes to let grow wild and free cascading down his head, though never letting it grow past his chin.

So any kind of artwork will do or does it have to specifically something along the lines of typography?
