This is a book cover for an upcoming science fiction title "Omega Force: Soldiers of Fortune". This is the follow up title of "Omega Rising". I did the cover art for "Rising" myself, and it shows, so I'm wanting something that will really catch some eyes. The size will need to be 625X1000 or 1563x2500, standard Kindle ebook cover size.
A little background on the story: This series is about a human who inadvertently gets shanghaied on an alien spacecraft and ends up becoming part of a small mercenary crew that travels and helps people in need in their gunship they liberated (think A-Team in space). It's written with a tongue-in-cheek, light-hearted tone, but it stops shy of being campy or juvenile. Here's the link to the first book:
The new book has Omega Force pitted against a loose organization of pirates and raiders that are attacking civilian shipping lanes. For the cover I'd like "Omega Force" to be the dominant text at the top with the subtitle "Soldiers of Fortune" underneath that in smaller print. My name would be at the bottom out of the way someplace. The font size for that can be scaled so as not to hide any detail.
I'm leaving this a little vague because I'd like to see what a visually creative mind can come up with without being hampered by any misguided requirements by me. The main points are that this is more a high-tech, militaristic scifi tale, so any design should reflect that. It goes without saying I'll be happy to provide any further detail on story or gift an eBook of the first one to somebody if they so desired.
I'm going to upload a jpg of the first book cover, not because I want to have that emulated in anyway, but just as a point of reference. It was done VERY roughly in Photoshop elements.
