Book Cover Design
This is the cover for a soon to be published novel written by Tim Mahoney. The story is set during the Vietnam War. But it really isn’t about the war. It’s a quirky love story, about people, American and Vietnamese.
Its hero, is a 1960s Catholic school rebel whose defiance results in a court-ordered choice: prison or Vietnam. In Vietnam he hopes his rebellious behavior will result in a discharge and a plane ticket back to America. But this scheme backfires, and enmeshes him and his Vietnamese girlfriend, in a dangerous world of Saigon gangsters and drug lords.
Being a self-published novel, the paperback version will be printed on demand. In today’s marketing environment, the cover’s design must also capture attention and tell a story as a thumbnail image on an e-commerce website.
