First of all, you will want to read the attached synopsis of my book, American Guinea Pig. This will give you a thorough understanding of what my book is about and spark many ideas as to what the cover might look like.
What I am NOT looking for:
- A cheap looking cover (Cheap graphics, etc.)
- A cover that has been created before
- People inexperienced with designing book covers
What I AM looking for:
- If you were walking through a bookstore, would you pick this book up just based on the cover alone?
- Free to be Creative and original
- A clear understanding of what book covers should look like. You only have a few seconds to grab someone's attention.
POSSIBLE idea's and cover directions:
- Incorporating the FDA building on the front cover. Maybe even slightly transparent. FDA should be clearly visible in the image.
- A cross bones look. Not sure how this will look, but just another idea.
In summary, I am looking for something very creative, catchy & controversial. It must be relevant to the subject matter of course. Bottom line, you are free to let your talents run wild.
This will initially be sold as an eBook, so the formatting must fit within those guidelines. Though I want to make sure we have the proper formatting for a printed version as well.
I do not have the content yet for the back cover. So please design for future integration. Also, please allow an area on the back for my image. I have attached my image to use.
Good luck and have fun coming up with a potentially winning design!
