Its simple and easy to look at, but I don't like the letters of the title being blocked off in black.

Necesidades de diseño
First and foremost I want something that will grab someone's attention and make them want to buy the book. So I want it to stand out on an Amazon page.
At the same time I want the cover to look serious and professional. This is my first book and I plan to write many more, so it will be something people go back to in decades to come. When I say professional I mean I don't want it to be cliche. I don't want it to look like a typical action fiction story. I want it to have a level of beauty. The story is about a boy who is on a journey to find himself, through the process of taking a ceremonial drug and saving his village. Along the way, he is helped by a black jaguar whom he saved when it was a cub. It would be cool if the jaguar was incorporated in the cover, but it would also be fine if it wasn't and I don't want the readers to think the jaguar is the main character. The main character is peruvian and is dark skinned. The jungle is a big part of the book and traditional psychedelic drugs play a big role in it also.
Soft colors like blues and greens I think would be favorable, but I don't want the cover to be too dark. I think people are more drawn to lighter covered books.
I want to be able to put this book up on a bookshelf and look at it every day without getting tired of it, but I also want it to be somewhat exciting.
Designers have plenty of freedom to make something you think looks good, and I hope you have some fun, I will appreciate any good work.
The dimensions will be 5.5 x 8.5 with a little less than 200 pages. The spine will be between .46 and .5
The contest is guaranteed, I will definitely be using a design, and the contest is blind.
If the book gets popular, the cover will be seen by thousands of people and I am perfectly willing to give designers credit. If I like the style of a design I might come back to that designer for future books at a higher price.
Lo que debe evitarse
Cluttered imagery on the cover, and cliche fiction styles.
