Need a science fiction book cover. First in a three book trilogy. Do a good job here and you'll get a lot more work.
Summary: two private investigators unearth a 10,000 year old secret in the seedy California town they call home. Think X-Files/Fringe meets Da Vinci Code.
At the top, I'd like the words "A Sci-Fi Mystery"
At the bottom, "The Singularity Conspiracy Book 1"
You can style these how you see fit. You can also change the location, if it fits the cover design better.
Colors, I like the faded, muted look of "Sand" by Hugh Howey, but again, I'm open to departures from that.
Design-wise, it needs to be evocative of the sci-fi genre. But I don't want anything cliche with aliens or planets.
