My book is based upon true life stories, but names of people and other aspects of their life have been changed, making this book "historical fiction" One of the main characters in the book (that the first-class angels assist) is a young man who is just about to graduate from high school who starts having seizures due to a sports (eye) injury after he wins a wrestling championship. This is why I want the cover to be attractive but not girly. I have some different things in mind that designers can use as their inspiration:
One would be a picture of a male angel at a piano (his side showing and only one wing) - with some muscles definition in his arm showing as well. I would like the piano to be outside like in a park or out on a beach or a just a regular guy playing the piano with a cherub sitting on the keyboard next to his hands.
My second idea is of a male wearing light clothing on beach making an angel in the sand, or perhaps two angels next to each other holding hands in which case a young man and a woman (but each form only one wing (each) and hold hands in the middle. The male would be olive complected and sandy blond hair (with brown eyes if that much detail allows, and the female brown hair and similar coloring.
A third option is a young angel holding a book reading while sitting on the keys of a piano with his legs hanging down on the seat. The dimensions of the book will be 5 X 8 In terms of font style I do like slight script like a recent book called "The Friendship Project) but I am open to the designer's suggestions. I also like French Script. I like slightly impressionist pictures, but still want to be able to see angel's face. Birds can be flying in the sky and music notes forming in the clouds.
