We publish books for the Swedish market. Our books has a Christian message but our books are targeted for everyone.
What's your vision?
We want a cover for the book "The Girl Who Stopper Lying". It's a book about a woman who had a very difficult background. Her childhood was filled with abuse and suffering. All her life she lied to hide her background, she lied to hide how she was doing. Then one day as an adult she totally breaks down, and ends up in the hospital. Her past has caught up. She starts to seek peace through eastern religions and ends up as a witch. Her life gets worse and worse - and is filled with fear and horror. One day she visits a church. She finally finds the freedom and forgiveness she's longed for. We want a cover that would capture the interest of readers. It should be somewhat dramatic (not like a horror movie cover though). We have a photo of the author as a child, and the photo could be used on the front cover or back of the book. You could also find a photo of a girl (if face is not seen) to incorporate in the cover. Photos of new age/yoga/witches could be used. One idea would be to have a girl (walking away from the camera) with a dramatic sky (like a fight between good and evil in the sky). I hope you get some ideas from the explanation of the story. You are free as well to come up with your own ideas. Good luck!
I'm adding a zip-file with cover template (Indesign) including the photo of the author as child. The books is called The Girl Who Stopper Lying" but the book is in Swedish and the title is "Flickan som slutade ljuga". I prefer to have "open files" se we could adjust spine width and also add the correct text for the back of the cover.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Sjöbergs Förlag collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.

And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
