JulNoWriMo Title: Wallis

Word Count: 0 / 50000
Word Count Start0% Complete100% To GoWord Count End

[*] posted on 7-2-2010 at 08:13 AM


Username: zemmy
Title of novel: Wallis
Your name or pseudo name (only if you would like this on the cover): J.Byrd
Any other text?: Nope
A short description of your novelís themes/plot/character (depending on what you would wish the cover to focus on): Wallis is about a person named Wallis, but Wallis has a secret that nobody can know. He isn't human; he isn't exactly sure what he is, maybe just insane. Wallis suffers from extreme asthma attacks, and whenever he has one he loses a chunk of his memory. It could be the face of a person he once knew or a complete year out of his life. The only thing he knows for sure is that he'll always have his reflection. His reflection has a life of its own, but only he can see it move when it doesn't copy him.

At 15 Wallis transfers to a rundown detention school on the outskirts of Calgary, Alberta by his foster parents whose identities were lost in an asthma attack. Bragg Institute is exactly like every other detention school Wallis has been to in his life. The teachers are strict, the students separated into gangs, and the school building falling apart. But when he sees another reflection with its own life, he gets drawn into a world his asthma attacks made him forget.

Wallis deals with gender issues (in a supernatural setting), and I only used gender pronouns to describe the plot for you. Wallis actually doesn't have a gender. But if you must know, Wallis's genitalia is female. This isn't acknowledged much in the plot though, or in any of his romantic relationships.
Any images that you would like to be on the cover (not necessary): Maybe a male and a female body intertwined, but not hugging or doing anything affectionate. If you use picture of a person, please make them androgynous.
Any other details?: For tones or colours, something dark or melancholy but not black and white/sepia please.

A short description of your novelís themes/plot/character (depending on what you would wish the cover to focus on): The novel is about two boys who only have eachother to depend on in the world, and the ties of family and love. The theme is sort of the red thread of destiny, connected to someone else by a simple invisible red thread.
Any images that you would like to be on the cover (not necessary): I'd like the red thread to be worked in there somewhere.

Title of novel: The Obsidian Shifters
Your name or pseudo name (only if you would like this on the cover): C Reijmers
Any other text?:
A short description of your novelís themes/plot/character (depending on what you would wish the cover to focus on): Fantasy, epic, war, striving for unity. There's a "Land of Lakes" in the story so maybe something related to that. No actual obsidian on the cover please :) Movement of some sort - a character moving making the picture blurry or no character but a sense of movement in another way. Light/natural colours. (Characters are mostly dark-skinned - but I'd prefer no photographs for the character(s) - representing people in some way is fine though - vague figures, drawings or simply having a building somewhere could work for that.

There's more of a plot summary over here.

Thanks!

Your name or pseudo name (only if you would like this on the cover): Katie Waldrop
Any other text?: The reflections are shattering, one by one...
A short description of your novelís themes/plot/character (depending on what you would wish the cover to focus on):
The main character, Nami, was interrupted by sabotage at a critical point in the development of her id-her self. Somehow, this ended in her becoming two identical people: Nami, and Iman. They are one person in two bodies, and someday one will have to kill the other to mend their split. In the larger perspective, their world is a copy of an original, which the government brought the people to in order to save them from cataclysm. Now, this created dimension is collapsing, and this splintered person's powers-the recreation of reality-are the key to returning to the now-stabilized original. Problem is, she can't use them until her shattered self is repaired...
Any images that you would like to be on the cover (not necessary): I'd like it to involve reflections somehow.
Any other details?: The story was inspired by Within Temptation's Hand of Sorrow, so if it evokes any vivid images...Main character is pale-skinned with long red hair in a black jumpsuit with silver scrollwork across the shoulders if you want to include her.

[Request edited for simplicity, because nobody's claimed it yet.]

Title of novel: txt

Your name or pseudo name (only if you would like this on the cover): um, no name

Any other text?: the words "it's more than just chatspeak" in blocky/bold print under the title, if possible. If not there, perhaps at the bottom of the cover. Wherever looks nice.

A short description of your novelís themes/plot/character (depending on what you would wish the cover to focus on): Um, basically it's about this guy who's been left by his lover of six years on his 24th bday, then later on finding love over the internet. The first part of the story is just him being depressed and not feeling motivated to do anything, then later on he starts opening himself up. So... I guess the themes are loneliness and... finding happiness? lol, I have no idea.

Any images that you would like to be on the cover (not necessary): Hm, I'm really liking my mental image of a semi-lit room, with a desk that contains an open/on laptop that's surrounded by empty cups of coffee, because that's how my MC is at the moment; messy and dependent on his computer. It'd be cool if there was a text message on the screen that you could read. I'm thinking something along the lines of "u there?" or "where r u?" something like that. I don't know how complicated it is to make covers, so if that's not possible it's quite alright.

Any other details?: No people whatsoever man, because it's awkward to me xD You can message me or whatever if you want more details or whatever. It's okay: I don't bite!

Thank you to whoever takes interest and makes this cover :3 I've never had anything like this done before, so... I'm really excited!
