What's your vision?
A group of American college students have been kidnapped from an Excavation site in northern Israel. A U.S. Envoy has been ambushed in Gaza and a United Nations peace keeping patrol has disappeared from a War-ravaged town in Syria. Behind it all is a mysterious cleric, who has quietly paved a swath of terror through the Middle East that threatens to set the World ablaze. Time is precious as DIA agent, Brad Ward, scours the region for his brother and the missing students, amid a burgeoning quake of violence. Will he get them out in time?
This cover needs to be a JPEG file and at least 2500 pixels on the longest side with a height/weight ratio of 1.6 It needs to include a single cover copy as well as a cover copy complete with spine and back. The blurb in the Content details above will need to be centered on the back cover, biased slightly toward the top. I would like the title to be large and at the top of the cover with the words, A Thriller, in small print directly below it and my name, S.M. Harkness, at the bottom of the cover,( also large). Example: SANCTION A Thriller By S.M. Harkness I don't want to stress any particular idea for the concept of the art, this is not my expertise. However, I do want to say that, 'less is more'. I don't want a busy cover that takes time to figure out. I want the reader to look at the cover and have a very basic idea of what the books about while still invoking some mystery. See Vince Flynn's- The Third Option, Daniel Silva's- The Heist or Brad Thor's- Act of War, for frame of reference.
