I'd like the cover to look similar to a Movie Poster. Simple with a symbol on the front. As a suggestion - but please do what you feel is best - an insignia is mentioned in my book which is described as a swirl with two wings lifting it and two words printed across the horizontal stretch: Defensor Piorum.
The mood should be:
It's also always interesting when an element carries from the front cover, through the spine, to the back cover, if you can swing this.
The book will be 6x9. I don't have page count just yet but it'll be around 350 pages.
This book is part of an existing series, which can be seen here (https://www.lauryfalter.com/guardian-the-books) but this book takes the series to a whole new level and I wanted that to be reflected on the cover. The other book covers are black and white, so I'd like to see if we can work that into the theme if at all possible.
While I'm asking only for a paperback book cover design here, I'd like to have a high-resolution image of the front and back covers so I can provide them to my guy who does my ebook layouts.
