ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: Dead As I'll Ever Be
Sub-title: Psychic Adventures That Changed My Life
Author: Pamela Evans
The book is based on the the author's 20 years of research into psychics, mediums and reincarnation. It includes personal stories from the author and other sources plus interviews with many intuitives.
"No matter how many times we mess up our lives and fail to learn our lessons, we get another chance to get it right... I'm certain that I'll never be less conscious than I am at this moment--in other words, I'm as dead as I'll ever be."
The content is not affiliated with any particular religious tradition so avoid traditional religious symbols or metaphors.
Keywords: spiritual, reincarnation, past lives, karma, psychics & mediums, soul, life purpose, finding meaning, comforting, loving
We need an e-book cover -- front cover only, no spine or back. Make it a flat image, no faked 3D effects.
Because this will be an e-book cover, it will often be used at thumbnail sizes, so the title must be legible at a small size. It's OK if the sub-title isn't as clear at a smaller size.
That said, the final file should be at least 1000 pixels high, proportioned as if for a 5.5" x 8.5" print cover. (The cover should work for print too, since a print edition may eventually follow. Therefore don't use elements that would be expensive or impossible to print.)
This book is a companion to another we had designed here on 99Designs. I've uploaded that final cover so you can see it. This new cover should not exactly match the existing one, but the two should look related or connected somehow.
Green (representing life) and gold (representing spirit) are good colours.
The author shares this idea: "A half silhouette of a tree with a person leaning against it. The person is looking at a winding river flowing in a meandering way to the middle distance which then disappears behind the bushes or trees. (The river represents the flow of a spiritual journey). In the distance, as on the other cover, is a rainbow.
If it's possible, lots of golden glow with the rainbow."
The keys here are the river, the rainbow off in the distance, and the colours.
Thank you and good luck!
