5x7" book cover with full bleed. This is for an eBook so I do NOT need the spine/back cover.
The title of the book is "Rook," which is the main character's name.
However I do NOT want a chess theme! NO CHESS PIECES, unless of course it is subtle and awesome, but I do NOT want a bunch of designs on a chess board, that is WAY too on the nose.
This is YA to adult horror. There is a Hell Gate with red and golden glowing runes (not specified as to what language so use your imagination) there is a fight between the heavenly host and the devil's legions (please do not be over the top with this theme though).
Basically the earth is the DMZ between Heaven and Hell and Rook is a member of an elite society that keeps that delicate balance only he is starting to burn out.
He is tasked with protecting a woman whom everyone believes is carrying the next Christ/Anti-Christ child.
Rook is dark haired but blue eyed, although I do not want to see his face full on since I want some mystery.
I am looking for sophistication, layered, beautiful, eerie, haunting cover. I am also VERY well versed with most of the stock photos out there so please do not waste your and my time by putting up a cover that just has a popular stock photo on it.
The sooner I get solid, interesting designs, the sooner I can guarantee the contest, however if I do not get a really refined cover presented I will not award the prize.
The author's name is Cristyn West
