Making a Night Stalker subtitle: The Triumph and Near Tragedy of a Special Operations Aviator
Biografía del autor
David Burnett was born and raised in Parker, Colorado. After a few semesters of college, he decided it wasn't for him and he enlisted in the Army in 2008. He was stationed with 563rd ASB as a 15U (Chinook Helicopter repairer). After realizing his job in the regular Army wasn’t as fulfilling as he had hoped, he applied for 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment SOAR. After making it through the unit's selection process he began his journey as a special operations crew chief. He went through countless years of training and deployed with the unit 5 times before deciding he wasn't going to reenlist. He put pen to paper after receiving an honorable discharge from the unit and began writing. This is his story.
Descripción del libro
A military memoir about my Army aviation career in 160th special operations aviation regiment. I discuss the constant desire to want to to make in to this elite aviation unit, and when I finally do I'm met with a demanding list of training and schools I have to attend before being allowed to fly on and deploy with the new special ops unit. After the first deployment I highlight another 4 with the unit as a Chinook helicopter crew chief in charge of manning a 4000 round a minute mini gun and being responsible for keeping the aircraft flying and maintained according to spec. This story is about a young kid who wanted nothing more than to be in the best unit he could and excel there.

Diseño de inspiración
I like the colors and the font. I would like to look into some green hue designs too. So as to reflect the idea that the reader is wearing night vision goggles
I like the colors and the simplicity of this design, but I'm not fond of the font.
I like that this design is simple, but not sure about the color palette.

Necesidades de diseño
I have had a few designers take a try at producing the best cover for this piece of non-fiction but have been unsuccessful. While I appreciate their efforts I just don't think they are hitting the mark yet. I'm looking for something movie poster esque but I would also be willing to entertain simple designs. Some things that I think could be incorporated in the cover would be a dropping or blowing US flag, a flight of one, two, or three MH-47G Chinooks, and a crew chief in full flight gear. I will include several images that may or may not work well for the final design. I also included some of the older cover designs to give you all an idea of where we were int he creative process. Thank you all for your help. I think a few other cool concepts would be to use the flight helmet picture I provided as the cover with maybe an all dark color background or US flag background. Then off the reflection of the lenses have a scene from Afghanistan or maybe Chinooks landing in the reflection (open to options). Another concept would include the last image I provided of the crew chief in the Tan flight suit with the Chinook in the background. Again I'm open to option as this is a very important book that needs to be perfect. I’d like to see both green hue covers to portray night vision but I would also like to see normal color versions too
Lo que debe evitarse
If you wish to use images of a Chinook helicopter is must be the G model airframe. Do not use a regular Army Chinook airframe. The Chinook should be an MH-47G. Please feel free to reach out to me if you need a better/different image of something related to the cover. I have a bunch of photos that I can share with you all. I just wanted to include a handful to give you an idea of the direction and the story of the book.
Company patch on helmet. Would be cool to incorporate this somewhere in the cover.
This is our company logo. If possible I’d like this incorporated on a flight helmet or vest of a crew cheif as a patch or sticker
