mhampton.cai got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Create Nature-Scene Book Cover for Best-Seller Miracle Testimonies
Check out mhampton.cai's Book cover contest…
This client has a best selling 1st book of 50 miracle testimonies. This 300-page new book of amazing real-life testimonies in highly-visible people's own words already has over 40,000 pre-orders (almost give-away pricing to help others) from a couple of international ministries. Client has shoestring budget to deliver a most powerful work, but book interior is primo -- deserving of a first-class, high-impact cover. Audience is primarily Christian, motivation/encouragement, humanitarian organizations, individuals seeking hope amidst their trials, challenges, hurts.
What's your vision?
Book Cover (front, back, spine) for Best Seller of 40 amazing miracles and testimonies (will be about 350 pages formatted) -- delivering all customary file versions, .psd, .jpg, .pdf, etc., with files ready to load directly into CreateSpace (completed according to their specs for soft cover trade 6x9 print) ... plus Kindle/KDP ebook cover file (slightly different dimensions) of same front cover. YOU ARE FREE TO BE CREATIVE IN YOUR INTERPRETATION OF MY CLIENT's VISION. The author's vision, the nature scene with colors she envisions, is in an attached Word.docx to guide you, but she understands you need flexibility to deliver your own interpretation of what we describe as "A Nature Scene of God's Creation" and a "time-lapse look of still life." Try to incorporate what you feel you can incorporate from her detailed vision and at least get in the key elements -- the vibrant green grass, the dew, the butterfly, and anything else that will fit such as the log...as much as you can without "overkill." We know you need room to breathe, to be creative, and all she saw in her dream is too much. Play with the key elements and feel. [Again, specifics of the vision are attached.] Image Style: Crisp and clear, not in any way like a 'watercolor', but has the "look of science" (National Geographic?), with clearly defined edges to each image. Book title: "Modern-Day Salvation Testimonies" -- which I refer to in working documents and filenames as "MDSE."
This book will be a guaranteed "BEST SELLER" in such categories as Christian Living, Miracles, Testimonies. Below the author's name on the cover we will want to add in smaller print "Foreword by Stan Cottrell" . Any elements that can be carried over from the author's prior best seller could create some sense of continuity, such as the FONTS which are (1) specified in the attached Word.docx and (2) shown in attached images of the prior book's cover -- but these suggestions or reference points do NOT tie your hands or limit your creativity. The author, Allison C. Restagno's photo and the front-back-spine of her first book, "Modern-Day Miracles" (MDM) are attached for reference. The main imagery for this new book cover (MDSE) should probably extend down to the bottom of the page (grass, with distinct blades perhaps then fading/merging into something more solid behind the author name in white, gold, whatever works) -- not be limited to the middle as in the prior Miracles book, so do NOT feel constrained by the prior (MDM) cover. The imagery will carry over to the back cover. Actual wording on the back cover is attached. The layout of the back cover's text should be the same as the earlier book (image attached). Spine -- We may have the design winner prior to final book formatting (which will tell us final number of print pages), so adjustment to the spine SIZE for the final CreateSpace file may have to be done in follow-up. But the spine text & elements can be designed now. As the attached cover vision Word.docx explains, the author specifically wants the blue butterfly on the spine. I look forward to seeing what you can do with this cover. This book will touch the hearts, minds and spirits of many people with great encouragement and inspiration. Please let me know what else you need from me. THANK YOU!
