I need a book cover that will work as an ebook cover for Kindle and a paperback cover for Createspace (5.25 X 8) *Template is attached.
This book teaches baseball players from middle school through college the Christian faith through parables, and how they can use Christian principles while they play and practice baseball. Having their team be like their own church, their Bible as their glove, and so forth.
The book has 3 main parts:
1.) An analogy of the bible by using a God as a baseball coach, and sending Jesus to form a new team where performance did not matter. Jesus won the World Series and now all that matters to Him is making adjustments and playing like the champion you are.
2.) Applicable ways these baseball players can practice these Christian principles with their own baseball teams, and how faith can make them better at baseball.
3.) My story of redemption and transformation after a serious baseball accident, where God took baseball away from me so that I could get closer with Him.
By the end of the book, readers will have a foundational understanding of the Bible, the Trinity, the benefits of the faith, and a firm belief in a mission for their lives through the game of baseball.
I hope to use the colors that I've been branding with which are: Blue, Green, Gold, and White.
I've attached some examples of what I have tried to use or have used in the passed. (The book cover I've attached was the initial design for the book, but it did not turn out as great as I had hoped.)
I would like the synopses on the back cover to say, " Jesus was one, if not, the greatest teacher who ever lived. Jesus was able to connect so well with His audience because He used unique parables and analogies that related to the lives of His students. Fisherman, farmers, tax collectors, and religious leaders were given the 'Keys to the Kingdom' through a clearer understanding of Truth. This book is designed for baseball players to understand Christianity in a new and profound way through the teachings of Christ through the game of baseball. Baseball players will be given a new strategy and approach to life by living for Christ through the game of baseball."
I would like to include my picture on the back cover as well only on paperback version (Attached)
I encourage you to be as creative as you would like to be. I would really like it to be an outstanding book cover. I have provided examples of what I have used in the passed. It would be great to keep the branding somewhat similar.
*please let me know if you need anything else from me. I'll be available anytime.
This book has the power to impact a lot of baseball players for Christ, all it needs left is a cover that expresses: how God is using baseball players to make an impact!
The Title is: Baseball Genesis
The Subtitle is: Living For Christ Through The Game Of Baseball
