I'm seeking a standard-sized front cover for my e-book novel, "Death in the Eye," a Whodunit?-style murder mystery set in 1920s England. Attached is a cover from an old mystery paperback (The Spiral Staircase) that captures the feel I'm looking for -- unapologetically antique -- to match the flavor of the novel.
The full title is "Death in the Eye - a mystery by Clay Waters," which would appear in an appropriate olde-time font, like a gothic mystery novel from the '30s. I think the Antique Book Cover Regular font would look spiffy, but you're the designer.
The scene I want: The petite, 20-year-old heroine of the novel is making a clandestine late-night investigation of her mansion, holding a candle in her right hand and an old-fashioned wooden walking stick for the blind in her left (it makes sense in context) at or near the bottom of a creeps-inducing staircase (which is not spiral). A suspicious shadow on the upstairs landing would not be amiss.
“She took my idea and put a superior twist on it. ”
