I need a book cover designed for my upcoming book, Doombusters: Eight End-Times Myths Debunked. This book is an answer to the plethora of doomsday books currently topping the Christian bestseller lists. Please see the attached thumbnails of books in this category. I AM NOT REFERENCING THESE BECAUSE I NECESSARILY LIKE THE DESIGNS, but because you can see what my audience is buying. Note, "Harbinger" has been on the NY Times bestseller list for over 100 weeks.
This book offers a hopeful and optimistic view of the traditional "doomsday" view. I use combination of scripture as well as real data from science, history and economics.
I am wide open to any style. The most important aspect of any design is to "pop off the shelf." It needs to be eye-catching even in thumbnail-size. The second most important quality is to be visually pleasing to the eye. Beyond that, go for it!
Please avoid "churchy" cliché's...clouds, heaven, etc. I approach my topic from a rational, clear thinking perspective. Please read my back cover copy for insights into by topic and approach.
9/10 UPDATE: I am getting a lot of designs with a very apocalyptic look. My theme is a POSITIVE and HOPEFUL view of our future in contrast to the more traditional doomsday views.
