I am leaving the main image elements to the imagination of the designer, although I have included some preferred creative elements in the attachments. I also attached some book covers in the same genre that are aesthetically well designed, which does not mean I want a similar design, just pointing out the other covers that work. I have attached the description of this thriller, and I have also included 3 sample chapters which each involve action scenes.
Amanda Michaels is in college, her dad genetically modified her cell telomeres, meaning she may live longer, but the long term effects are uncertain.
The call to action of the novel involves her and a former SEAL traveling under aliases to China and trying to secure the safe return of her baby brother who was kidnapped. So the central "chase" of this novel is when they travel to Beijing to try to secure the release of Amanda Michaels baby brother who is held somewhere in Beijing.
