Title: The Haunting of Rook House Series Title: Author: Suza Kates Design Specifications: This will be a digital cover only Image: RGB at 350 DPI Size: 2,560 x 1,600 pixels File format = Photoshop CC (NOT Flattened) ******************************************** Imagery requirements.

Images from wallpaper sites and other presumed public domain sites will not be accepted. If you are using an image from your personal stock then you must provide evidence that it is royalty free. NO CHARACTER on cover BACKGROUND AND OTHER DETAILS I need this cover to be in the style of other haunted house books. A picture of the house should be the main focus. I have uploaded a color palette that represents my brand. You may use any complimentary colors that work, but please use the red tones (or in that family of red) more than the blue. (You don’t HAVE to use the blue at all if it doesn’t work.) This is a standalone novella. The two main characters have bought a haunted house in the style of gothic revival. The name of the house is Rook House due to the ravens that perch in the surrounding trees. AUTHOR NAME may be placed at top or bottom as needed to fit the cover design. I'd like to try the name stacked, similar to the Mary Stone cover that is attached to the brief.
