What's your vision?
I need a book cover for an action thriller novel titled ‘Garden of Regrets.’ The story takes place in the Arab sections of the Middle East in 1989. It involves terrorism, deceit, infidelity, conspiracy, and an attempted coup within an Arabian royal family. There’s also an American security expert who is an ex-CIA agent. Graphic elements might include Middle Eastern architecture, a 747 airliner, a veiled woman, the desert, handguns, and some kind of stylized vines that represent a garden. Or take a completely different approach, as long as the cover clearly depicts action, mystery, and danger in the Middle East. The following text from the back cover should give you some idea of the plot… A throne without an heir... A jealous brother, ready to seize power at any cost... It’s the summer of 1989. The Iraqi invasion of Kuwait is still more than a year in the future. The twin towers of the World Trade Center stand tall, the US Pentagon untouched by the hand of terrorism. The first and second Gulf Wars are not yet flickers in the minds of military strategists. But the apparent peace of the Middle East is no more than an illusion. A seething turmoil of brutality, deceit, and cross-cultural hatred lies just below the surface, ready at any second to break forth in a cataclysm of fire and blood. In this calm moment before the storm walk two Americans, both come to answer the callings of their professions. Simon Rhodes, a fallen CIA operative turned security consultant, is here to make a difference in this strange land if he can. Danielle McKenzie is a registered nurse, hired to tend patients in a hospital that practices more than medicine. Drawn into the violent intrigues of an Arabian royal family, they must choose between a murderous lie that may preserve the serenity of a nation, or a truth that can only lead to war.
The title text should be in a font that looks Arabian or Middle Eastern. We’re using the XXII ARABIANONENIGHTSTAND font on the cover page. You can use that one, or another easily-readable font with a strong Middle Eastern feeling. The text on the front and back covers should be set as separate layers, so that I can edit the wording as marketing strategies for the book change over time. I’m uploading a Photoshop template that it already sized for the book.
