Nicole22439 got their new book cover by running a design contest:
THE LUCKY ONE - book cover for true story about Sex Trafficking & Rescue
Check out Nicole22439's Book cover contest…
Community & Non-Profit
As a survivor of human trafficking herself, author Jenni Jessen, knows firsthand the depths of trauma a body can endure but she also knows the great lengths Jesus will go to redeem those held in captivity. She was sold into the sex trade from the age of 4 to 17. "The Lucky One" is her story of survival and redemption.
What's your vision?
We will need a front and back book cover design for a paperback and Kindle book; HOWEVER, FOR THE PURPOSES OF THE INITIAL CONTEST, THE DESIGNER NEED ONLY SUBMIT THE FRONT COVER IDEA. The winning designer will be required to complete the full cover design at no additional charge. ********************************************** I've included several book jacket images (see attached) the author selected that have a similar look/feel to the style she'd like for her own book. As you can see, she's drawn to images that have a stark artistic feel. If you use stock art for your image, please provide information on the cost and licensing agreement required to use it on a for-profit publication. Cost will be a deciding factor. We have also included a low-res version of a "red winged blackbird" print given to the author's by a friend. It also appeals to her as an option for the cover so we've obtained permission to use the high resolution image in the final design, if it's chosen. FRONT COVER Title: The Lucky One Subtitle: A chilling true account of child sex trafficking and one survivor's journey from brutal captivity to a life of freedom. Author: Jenni S. Jessen ------------------------ BACK COVER endorsements: "Jenni masterfully weaves steadfast truths into a story that shakes our world view, our theology and our ideas of what a human can bear. The hope and redemption she found in the darkest places become available to all of us. We, too, lose our fears as we walk alongside a broken child into wholeness and restored womanhood." - Hettie Brittz, author and motivational speaker (anticipating 1-2 more) --- book description: She was only four years old when she was sold into the sex trade. White picket fences and steepled churches all guarded secrets that were not ever supposed to be told. In kindergarten, she began praying every night that Jesus would let her die. In second grade, she sat in church on a Sunday morning swinging her feet from a wooden pew behind the man who had paid to rape her the night before. Her perpetrators were from all walks of life. An engineer, a police officer, a bait shop owner, business men, farmers, younger men and old; different men all feeding the same lust. The only thing that they had in common was their brutal love for little girls. She shouldn’t have survived it. If God had answered her prayers, she wouldn’t have. Here is the true account of how she was brought out of captivity and into a life of freedom. --- author bio: Survivor of human trafficking, Jenni Jessen, knows firsthand the depths of trauma a body can endure. Thirteen years of sexual exploitation did not leave her defeated. She is a wife, a mama, and a broken girl saved by grace. Jenni is creator of Priceless Cube, a tool being used in 40 countries to prevent human trafficking. She and her husband live in SE Asia where they founded Compass 31, to fight human trafficking. Together they provide foster care to teenage mothers and babies rescued from the sex trade. Their foster family includes 6 different people groups, a dog, a cat, and a set of lovebirds named Jack and Diane. --- author image website: www.compass31.org price: $12.95 ------------------------ SPINE The Lucky One Jessen ----------------------- DOCUMENT DIMENSIONS (the book has APPROXIMATELY 120 pages) Finished book will be 6" x 9" Artwork should be prepared as CMYK and delivered as flattened PDF ------- CreateSpace Publisher Requirements: Safe Zone: Text and images must be at least .125" inside the trim lines to ensure that no live elements are cut during the bookmaking process. Images: Images must be CMYK. All images should be sized at 100%, flattened to one layer and placed at a minimum resolution of 300 DPI. Spine: "Every book will vary slightly when bound. Allow for 0.0625" variance on either side of the fold lines for your cover. For example, if your spine width is 1", your text should be no wider than 0.875". Because of this variance, avoid hard edges or lines that end on the fold line." Barcode: Leave room for a 2" by 1.2" barcode to appear in the lower right-hand corner of the book's back cover.
Once again, for simplicity sake, you only need to submit a front cover design idea for the initial contest. Attached is a low-res copy of a photo called "Red Winged Blackbird". It was given to the author and she loves the stark symbolism in it, and wondered if it could be used in the cover design. If you'd like to try to incorporate it, that would be terrific. We do have the photographer's permission to use it on the cover and we'll share the hi-res version with the winning designer. The master file is a 3582x2364 TIF image. [Note: This contest is posted by the author's publisher on her behalf.]
