What's your vision?
I'm looking for a book cover for a fiction book I wrote entitled Waking Up Chase: One Student's Journey to Awakening his Potential. I like clean and modern designs. My company colors are orange, black, white, and grey. I use orange and black the most. Only use those four colors, but experiment with how you use them. Example: Grey book background...maybe..white book background, change the color of the wording in different designs etc. I don't like idea of a black book cover though. I can see a white cover with orange as the main accent and black within or an orange or grey cover utilizing white and orange as an accent. I'm open. I want a book cover with those three colors to match the company brand. Some other ideas: (All maybe's) -He "awakens" to what his potential is...we can play with what that might -mean and how we can display that..(bed, sunshine) -Chase meets an older version of himself - How can we show that in some type of image possibly? -He meets with a guidance counselor, a group of friends, and he has a one on one meeting with the student body president. How can we possibly display that he's meeting people throughout? I'm not interested in photos of real people as Chase doesn't have a color or nationality. Feel free to reach out with any questions and I'll answer them right away. Thank you Thank you Thank you. Author name: Darryl Bellamy Book Size: 5.25 X 8
The story takes place on a college campus. Chase is a freshmen student at Myatt University and considers himself an average student. He goes to college and decides he’s going to do what he did in high school and not get involved or try extremely hard to be successful. All incoming students on campus are given a required reading on student success their first year, and what he doesn’t know is if he doesn’t read the book or apply what’s within, he will actually BECOME the story. Chase decides to ignore the advice of his friends who know what could possibly happen if he doesn’t read it. Chase wakes up one morning after a night of partying confused because his surroundings look different. He realizes he’s in another freshmen students body, four years into the future. He eventually realizes that on that day he’s going to be mentored by his future/potential self. Chase is surprised as his "potential/future self" is successful and he can’t figure out how he did it being the person Chase feels he was before waking up in this student's body. His potential self introduces him to multiple people on campus and teaches him some of the lessons that caused the change in his life and made him a successful student leader. -Start and plan early from the beginning. -You’re the average of your relationships and the people you spend time around. -In order to be successful you have to face those things that scare you - Face Fears. -Successful people take responsibility for EVERYTHING that happen in their lives. I wanted to thank you in advance for submitting. I appreciate you taking your time to design a cover for my work. Thanks.
