What's your vision?
A cover for an eBook (formatted specifically for Amazon). The name of the book is "Oops". The story overview is as follows: Carla Quinn was a headliner, an accomplished circus acrobat, who dazzled the big top audiences with spectacular stunts on the high wire; particularly the act she developed, called ‘Oops.’ It never failed to leave the crowds breathless and she became known by that name to her circus ‘family.’ Carla’s world disappeared when a tragic fire took from her the livelihood and the lifestyle she had known. Desperate to find use for her unique skills, she fell under the influence of a charming, but unscrupulous, art dealer who promised her a share of the ‘good life,’ but at a price. She was rescued by an itinerant clergyman when the art dealer ran afoul of the law. While the clergyman was restoring her confidence and sense of self worth, she again encountered the art dealer, who once more tempted her with the promise of worldly riches, if she would betray her benefactor. Carla’s life became more complicated when she was pursued by a retired policeman, who was determined to see her arrested for her past alleged crimes. She redeemed herself by performing selfless acts of courage which few people could and fewer would, including the ultimate act to save the ultimate treasure.
I'm thinking the cover would depict a girl (Carla) on a high wire, a Sherlock Holmes type character and an art thief. I'm not sure how to incorporate all of these characters so I'm definitely open to any ideas.
