T.J. Rogers's use of retro science fiction in this cover was a bit hit, with lots of colour co-ordination along a green-blue theme. The alien positioned in front of the time tunnel machine was designed to look weird, eye-catching, and irresistible. The cool, sleek title jived in well with a futuristic, modern theme for this book.
Anyone who appreciates creativity and brilliance should check out Scapen's portfolio.
She is a real pleasure to work with. Be sure to ask for her opinion. She is a pro.

How williamj started their book cover journey
Who are you known as?

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
I have authored a spiritual improvement/self improvement book for Christians and need a cover designed.
The book title is: A Tithe of Time
The basic premise is giving God 10% (a "tithe") of your time for 40 days. This means one would spend 2.4 hours a day focused on God through Bible study and prayer. God wants to direct us in the best life we can live and allowing ourselves the TIME to listen to Him is one of our most important actions.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I need a color book cover front and back with inside flaps.
This book is sold when I speak or via a website and is designed to take the reader through a seven week small group or solo study about God and His plan for our lives.
The cover should have a spiritual theme with the emphasis on Christianity. If you can manage to convey God directing our lives when we submit ourselves to Him in this case by using some of our time to focus on Him and what He wants to tell us in our life you'll have it!
We have only 1 life to live, we all want to make the greatest use of that life and as a Christian should want God to direct our path because He knows where we are heading.
I have attached a draft version of a possible cover created some years ago. This can give you one idea which I considered. As you may guess the reason I am running this contest is that I didn't love the cover when I looked at it as much as I thought I would when I first conceived it.
I will comment further as various ideas are posted.
If you want to post only a front cover submission initially that's fine but I would suggest you post at least a generic back cover with both inside flaps to confirm you will submit the entire project if selected as a finalist.
