A cover is needed for a book titled Jo Ann by Nectar. The idea of this book, in summary, is that a black slave who has very light colored skin (and easily mistaken for being a caucasian woman) decides to enlist with the Union army in the American Civil War as a white man. She also has recently had a baby. The cover should show JoAnn both as a slave with a baby and as a white man in the army. I am thinking that the best way to show this would be to have JoAnn standing holding her baby looking into the mirror and her mirror image is her as a Union soldier with a union hat on looking like a white man. If you feel you have a better idea, you are free to use it.

Attached is an image of an attempt on the cover that was rejected because it doesn't look intriguing enough. It looks more like a copy and paste collage. I need this cover to be more of an illustration that looks epic and will draw people in.

MAKE SURE that you consider the time period was in the 1860's so the illustration must reflect that with any details you may add.

Thanks and good luck.

      JoAnn looks how I described her. She is a woman and very light skin tone. She is in good shape. She is in her mid to late 20's. She may look something like a young Lena Horne: http://a1.files.biography.com/image/upload/c_fill,cs_srgb,dpr_1.0,g_face,h_300,q_80,w_300/MTE4MDAzNDEwNTYwODQ1MzI2.jpg

    You are on the right path. Just take the grin off her face and in the mirror she should be holding a Civil War style rifle and not the baby....maybe even a battlefield in the background

      It does not matter. we just want a cover that looks great. It could be real human people dressed up and posing for all we care. The most attractive cover will win.
