I am the author of novels.
What's your vision?
I need a front-cover image for a novel entitled Elizabeth Daleiden on Trial. It must be a JPEG image with at least 300 DPI. I’ll use it for the front cover of a six-inch-wide-by-nine-inch-high paperback as well as the front-cover image, in the same two-by-three proportions, of an ebook edition. Here’s a brief synopsis of the novel: “In this LGBTQ courtroom thriller set in the late 1970s, a politically ambitious state’s attorney charges Elizabeth Daleiden with the murders of her father and two neighbors in the 1950s. Her trial threatens to blow the lid off her Illinois farm community’s darkest secrets.” I’ve bought the rights to use the attached photo image for the cover. Please note that it is proportioned approximately two-by-three, and it has 300 DPI. I want the cover designer to make the following deletions from and additions to this photo. (1) The words “Jackson County Courthouse” should be replaced with “Concord County Courthouse” (quotation marks not included). (2) The statue and the base on which it stands should be removed and replaced with the windows, columns and whatever else they currently obscure. (3) The title should be placed in the sky above the courthouse. It should be centered, all upper-cased, in a large conservative font such as Times New Roman and in a color strongly contrasting with the sky behind it. I want the title to be legible on a thumbnail image. It should probably appear in three lines, as follows: ELIZABETH DALEIDEN ON TRIAL (4) My name, RON FRITSCH, should appear centered, all upper-cased and probably in one line near the bottom of the steps in a color strongly contrasting with the steps. I believe the font should be the same in size and type for the author as it is for the title. I also hope the same color can be used for both the title and my name. Again, I want my name to be legible on a thumbnail image.

It all began with a design brief.
