The Dead Don't Sleep
Maria Quick is in her late twenties and likes to write books without the conventional happy-ever-afters.
As a private detective in a corrupt city, Dolph Malone never wanted much; and it was still all snatched away. He’s perfectly happy to spend the rest of his days in a low-class dive; until he sees someone he never thought he’d see again. His mother. Only problem was, she’s been dead for two years. Suddenly, Dolph’s thrown into a brand new world, where even the darkest magic is no match against the evil of man. The book is set in 1930s America, in a fictional city similar to Hollywood. The protagonist is a down-on-his-luck private detective, who suddenly discovers that magic exists.
Young adults to adults, anyone interested in noir, mystery or fantasy.
The story is a noir, hard-boiled detective story in the style of Philip Marlowe. I'd like the main characters to be on the cover, but it's not completely necessary if you have other ideas. The protagonist spends most of his time in a dingy speakeasy. He's white, poor, and wears shabby clothing and hat. The owner of the speakeasy is described as old, black and stooped, who usually has a towel over his shoulder. The other two main characters are a Hispanic woman who wears men's suits, and a black woman who only ever wears red. Again, it's not completely necessary for all or any characters to be on the cover, but this is how they're described in the book. Otherwise, I'd like the cover to be simple, reflecting the time period, in maybe the Art Deco style. As the book involves fantasy and magic, if this could somehow be incorporated into the cover, that'd be great, too.
