Artist Needed ($)

Postby Ellen Kuhfeld » Sat Mar 05, 2016 6:07 pm

I'm doing a spot of self-publishing, and need a cover artist. The book is about a Benedictine abbey of nuns during the Wars of the Roses in England. Thus, even the finest anime style won't work. Anybody here have a decent book-cover style?

It's an old SCA publication -- four chapbooks -- which will be called The Chronicles of Deer Abbey. I published the chapbooks, and later, it was republished as two issues of Compleat Anachronist. It gained Margaret of Shaftesbury the accolade of the Laurel, which is very large business in the SCA, so it definitely is good. I've scanned it into a text reader, removed most of the illustrations, and proofread and copy-edited it. Corrected a number of mistakes of age and name. This'll be the second edition.

I'm going to assume you know what the SCA is, but I'll give a short description of the issues involved in this book. People develop personae within the SCA -- somebody who could have lived within the Middle Ages. Margaret decided she wanted autonomy in her persona -- genuine autonomy, not only in the modern world but in the Middle Ages. She became Margaret of Shaftesbury, abbess of Deer Abbey. (It is officially Abatia Cervi Albi, the abbey of the White Stag, after the vision of Saint Eustace.) Abbesses had autonomy. Powerful abbesses ranked with barons, and had the right to sit in council with the King.

She wrote up her background as chapbooks: Give Us This Day, Our Daily Bread, Deliver Us From Evil, and Thy Will Be Done. Modeled the titles after the James Herriot books. The four chapbooks covered her life and death as an abbess, and total about 60,000 words when you count the appendices and footnotes. Each chapbook had a cover (The one I think best is included) but I need a better cover for Give Us This Day, and an overall color cover that'd look okay on a trade paperback or an e-book.

An interesting project.

Are you still looking for an artist?
