We are creating an abridged version and want to create an entirely new cover (we didn't like the original one that much!). So client is looking for a bold cover that is contemporary and interesting.
This book is from the perspective a retired Special Forces Lt Col who has concluded the US military policy is not working, and he has a solution. So he literally wants to "change the game" on how the US military operates in regards to countries like Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, etc. So the imagery should make it clear that this is about changing the game. While you could use military imagery, other images that convey a change in strategy or tactics may be more effective.
Público al que se apunta
Military policy makers, politicians, people interested in military history and the future of the military. Target market will likely be male, ages 30-65. While many will be veterans, we want the cover to appeal to NON-veterans too.
