Bob is a joy to work with. He listens, gets to work, executes and delivers. He's competent, professional and meets his self-imposed deadlines. I plan on using him again! Lou Higgins

I was very impressed with the number of quality designs and how responsive Relic 88 was when asking for changes. Very pleased and would recommend Relic 88 to anyone looking for quality designed bookcovers. Thank you !!
quarterbackTB has been phenomenal throughout this process! He really got my vision and patiently tweaked the design until it was absolutely perfect. I intend to return to him for the next two books in my series. GREAT experience with a fantastic artist!

What industry do you think your business is most related to?

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I need a full cover (front, back, spine) designed for a novel.
The story is about a mystical oarsman, in the time of castles and knights, who rows a dying man up a river to help him find the paradise at its end. Even though told against the adventures of the man's life, the story is really about the oarsman, his relationship to the river, and how he changes the man's life through his quiet ways.
I'd need the final PSD file so I can add layers with text or other design elements (subtitle, blurbs, etc.) when I finalize them.
I mocked up a picture with stock photos which captures the feel of the book (fantasy, mystery, adventure, peace).
This can be used as a starting point to improve on. Ignore the font/placement of the title and focus on image and see if that could be made into a sellable book cover. I have uploaded the psd file with all the elements in layers.
The book has fantasy elements, but is mainly spiritual/literary fiction, so I'm looking for something akin to my mockup: more serious, something that stands out from all the other fantasy covers.
Or, if you have an idea in a completely different direction, I'd love that too.
