What's your vision?
Book cover for e-Book. But with the potential to be hard cover as well.
I've included two photos of myself (B&W and color) as well as a logo I hoped to use. I was thinking of using the photo on the back cover - if there's space. But we do not have to use them. The logo can be any color or altered if necessary. (We do not have to use it either). Also included a book cover of the type I like. I don't like cartoons or hand sketches. It should be dramatic. I like certain elements of the book cover design I included - like texture and the almost photographic quality. But this should certainly not dictate your own vision. The title of the book is "The Carrington Event". The book is set in modern times. But the actual Carrington Event happened in 1859 - a solar storm that would have knocked out most of our electronics today. The main character is an American synthetic biologist who's discovered how to inject artificial DNA into humans. He's hunted by a criminal network called the Nexus. The book should be 6' X 9' with an aspect ratio of 1:1.6. I would also like the .psd (if done in photoshop) so I can update the back cover copy if needed. Here's the back cover copy: James Randall Parker is a synthetic biologist who has heard enough at a conference in Rome. He’s now sure that no one else has implemented artificial DNA into humans like he has. But out of the lab and out of the U.S. for the first time, he’s not prepared for the gauntlet of dynamic personalities that want to steal his work. His world is quickly turned upside down when he’s seduced by a beautiful spy and embroiled in a deadly game of scientific espionage that he learns is driven by a secret underground society known as the Nexus. Now Jim Parker must team up with the wife he just cheated on, a busy executive with a secret of her own, as they evade the far reaching influence of the Nexus, stomping around some of Italy’s most ancient and storied cities. But when the Nexus assassin tasked with finding and killing him discovers an oddity in his past that ties him to her own broken life, does she become an ally or motivated enemy? The Carrington Event will take you through life and death, adventure and misbehavior. All while being strangled by the hidden solar catastrophe that will disrupt the world order within the next 48 hours…
