This is a Christian Fiction book about the reality of Hell...This is not a gorey or scary book. I don't want it to be depicted that way on the cover.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
Hi- Thanks for reading. I know why you see this is a book about Hell, you think, "Oh, my gosh!" But, please read on: This is the story about a guy whose father dies when he is young and from then on he doesn't trust God. Through his married like, tragedies strike, but his heart remains hardened. Then, Will develops cancer and dies. In Hell, he is able to look back and see all the goodness of God and how He'd been with him all of his life, but he just couldn't/wouldn't acknowledge him. The story starts out as a romance between he and his soon-to-be wife (about 3/4 of book) then, last fourth of book is about the Hell experience and the PERMANENCY of his choice. I want the cover to look bold, suspenseful, something a reader cannot resist picking up.
I don't want the cover to look like science fiction, but it needs to be riveting. I am going to send you an image I was considering using, but it just doesn't have that punch, that edge, that WOW factor...but it does depict both heaven and hell...so that was good, I thought. I am also sending you the cover of my previous book, so you see what it was like (story of forgiveness). For the project I am talking to YOU about, I had a dream last night about a cover that was all black, except for a small shaft of light coming down from above. On the bottom was the neck and face of a guy looking up at the light. His face reminded me of a sweaty fireman. It looked like it was being reflected by the flames. I'm not saying this is what I want...I really don't know, but just telling you this so you will know I am open to new ideas. Anyway, look at my previous cover and you can see it is a little "safer" than I want to do this time around. Make it intriguing...not so literal...make potential readers curious. I have all 5 star reviews on Amazon for my first book. This book, too, is well-written. I have a passion for bringing God's message to the world. This book will be controversial...but it will also be a best seller. I welcome you to be a part of it all. Feel free to Google me, so you have an idea of what I'm like, etc. I thank you in advance for considering this challenge!!!!
