I need a book cover designed for my science fiction book project, The Final Six Days. The novel is set in futuristic Las Vegas. I have attached a few (admittedly terrible) mockups that illustrate what I am trying to make. My daughter also made a sketch also of what I am looking for. Feel free to ask questions, thanks! CONCEPTS (Pick 1) 1. Futuristic Las Vegas skyline with asteroid crashing down 2. Characters overlooking futuristic Las Vegas skyline standing on Stratosphere antenna (see below) 3. Characters overlooking futuristic Las Vegas skyline from a distance LOOK AND FEEL - Futuristic, nighttime sky, skyline bright and colorful - Clean and simple LAS VEGAS SKYLINE (see EXAMPLE 1 and EXAMPLE 2) - Use a photo from the early evening - Futuristic - taller, thiner buildings, 3D holographic billboards - Stratosphere should be part of the skyline, make it slightly taller, change the antenna color from red to blue, and give the body a steel colored look - Blur any visible names on buildings or signs - If the Luxor building (pyramid shooting light into the sky) is visible, please erase ASTEROID - A giant, menacing rocky fireball descending from a starry night sky (see EXAMPLE 1) - No moon CHARACTERS - Character 1 - Male, 5-foot-11 with very short hair, buzzcut/bald, dressed in mostly black - Character 2 - Female, 5-foot-9 with black hair with color streaks, wearing short black jacket - two characters standing atop a futuristic version, or away in distance - Facing forward; please no faces - Think Batman overlooking the city (see EXAMPLE 3) TEXT TO INCLUDE The Final Six Days Time Crossers: Book 1 Joe Agster FRONT White or Silver/Steel Colored Text Title at the top, Author's name at the bottom (as in the EXAMPLE 1) SPINE Title and Author's name BACK Title and synopsis
Synopsis: The story is about a man who wakes up in the desert outside of Las Vegas on December 26th. He has no memory, and everything around him feels strange and foreign. He soon discovers that a civilization-busting asteroid is about to crash into Las Vegas in six days. After wandering aimlessly in the dystopic final days with Cassie, a young attractive woman who has a fetish for helping lost souls, they spend their final moments together before being incinerated by the crashing fireball. But instead of dying, he awakes in the same location as before, realizing he is living the same six days over and over. With the help of a mysterious former NASA scientist, he formulates a plan to save himself and Cassie by taking shelter in one of the top secret government underground survival centers. But along the way, he uncovers clues that suggest not all is what it seems, and through introspection, he wonders if he is meant for a greater purpose.
