What's your vision?
I need a book cover for an exciting and heart-rending new novel. Title: Panther in the Sun Author: John Comfort Panther in the Sun is the name of the main character, a Lakota Sioux man whose life is brutally tragic. It is a story of first nations people who experience discrimination, oppression, and violence in the modern world, but who overcome it with determination, hope, courage, and spirit. The story spans three generations and includes a love of the great outdoors, connection with native spirituality, and much hardship and bloodshed. The cover should evoke the horror of unjust violence, oppression, and discrimination, the pools of despair, and also the expansiveness of indomitable hope. The title is more important than the author's name. I see blood red, earthen brown, lush green, and sky blue in my minds eye. A strong native American male with a look of strong determination, long black hair, but no obvious native American symbols. The cover should not use native American design tropes. The book will be a trade paperback: 5.5 x 8.5 inches. The title should be legible at thumbnail size (140 pixels high on Amazon). I have attached draft back cover copy and the first two chapters. Help me bring this powerful novel to market with a powerful design!
The InDesign template is sized for the full cover wrap. The final files should use the InDesign template.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at €269.
Full copyright with production-ready files for digital and/or print.
