I need a book cover designed in both printed and e-book formats. The name of the book is The Ambrose Beacon, which is the first book in a series of six or seven books. Whichever artist I select will likely have first right of refusal for future book covers in the series.
The book takes place in Colorado, so I'd like there to be an image of the Rockies along the bottom of the front cover, wrapping around to the back. I'd like the title to be near the top of the front cover and my name along the bottom. I also need the spine to have the title and my last name. The book is 410 pages, including copyright page, acknowledgments, etc. The book takes place in winter, at night, in the mountains and the snow, so I'd like the color scheme to evoke this.
I've uploaded two images. One is a griffin, which must be the prominent design feature of the front cover. The second image is a triquetra, which I'd like used on the back cover. I'd also like to have the back cover include the text below, near the top to allow room for the bar code along the bottom.
Title: The Ambrose Beacon
Author: Alena Gouveia
Back Cover Text:
Strange things have been happening in Evergreen, Colorado. People are disappearing, wolves are prowling the woods for the first time in seventy years, and strangers in black are showing up at the local schools. For the Ambrose family, it’s a sign that their quiet lives are about to be changed forever. The events signal the beginning of a struggle that will either push them closer together as a family or tear them apart. To survive, each of the children must harness the strange new abilities with which they’ve been gifted and learn to fight as one. For Jeremiah Ambrose, the struggle to protect his children will force him to put aside his animosity for his brother-in-law Harper, and learn to see him in a different light.
But for Harper, the burden is heaviest. He alone knows the truth about the strange events and what they mean for his family. Something is searching for the Ambrose children. And when it finds them, the fate of the whole world will be decided…
