I would like the cover to resonate the backdrop metaphor of ascending a prestigious and majestic mountain ridge. The ridge could be continuous along the spine and back cover. I have a few ideas about the front cover, in that I would like the title "Rise Up" to be along the top of the ridge, possibly in red or in some other related color that stands out. The subtitle positioning I leave to your creativity. Also use of a picture of myself on the cover, with my branding (logo Dr. J Empowering Agents of Change - herein attached) somehow distinctly positioned. This is my first autobiographical work therefore it is important to me that readers see & identity with me.
On the back cover I will have text which I'll supply once I decide on the cover. It would be nice to be able to depict climbers ascending the mountain ridge on the back and summiting on the front cover...
Part of the proceeds from the book will go to a non-for-profit ministry devoted to climbing mountain ridges to increase awareness, funds and resources to rescue, rehabilitation and restore victims of sexual trafficking worldwide - The freedom Challenge (A few pics of their past climbs are herein attached)
The AAE logo will need to be positioned on the spine and back cover.
Those are a few ideas, but I'm anxious to see the visual options created by your creativity in conveying my message.
I am attaching a few scenic pics (as examples only, as I don't want to pay royalties for using stock pics, if possible) , pics of myself, my branding logo, AAE logo options and a few genre similar cover examples.
Note: Although I have provided my ideas, please take creative freedom. I am so thrilled to have the opportunity of this process.
