Book Cover Design. The Social Median is a work of horror and dystopian science fiction where social media forms the nexus for technology, politics, economics, and society to assume control of all aspects of human life in the form of a new religion.
The overall concept for the book cover is a Preacher, dressed in a suit and a tie, delivering a charismatic sermon to a crowded church.
The Preacher / Reverend is standing behind a wooden podium, holding his arms in the air with a tablet computer in one hand and giving the thumbs up with the other.
The background for the image is the inside of a church. There is a stylized “like” thumbs up logo positioned on the church wall for people to worship (basically the thumbs up symbol has replace the holy cross with respect to iconography).
The audience at the bottom of the photo is giving the thumbs up sign to the preacher.
On the back cover, a simple black back cover including the website logo, ISBN, text, and title is acceptable. Other ideas for the back cover are welcome as long as it includes the text, title, ISBN, and logo.
Font. I’ve used Impact Bold font (the “Meme” font) with black outline for the title and author name. For the back cover I’ve used Century Gothic Font. Feel free to select a different font as you see fit.
Text. The cover art text is the following:

Dimensions. The size of the book is Digest 5.5” x 8.5” cover. There needs to be a 0.125 bleed area around the edge, so the total size for the image will be 11.25” x 8.75”. There needs to be a 0.25” text safety area around the interior of the image.
This is a short story, and 0.125” is all that is required for the book spine. There is no room / no need to include text along the spine.
