Book cover type
I am attaching 3 pics. From the author: - the waves in the backdrop and around the spine and back of book. I like both of these photos for different reasons. The darker one feels like it taps into some of the darker tones of the book, but the lighter one has a more tumultuous backdrop that feels more “hopeful”. - I envision the triangles (or something like this) over the waves and then the Title over that in a bronze/gold color I want the cover to feel like something special because the book will also be a workbook for the story of themselves. I want it to be beautiful and draw you in...almost like a pretty journal. Note from me: it's likely many of the details I've provided here will change, especially the author bio, pic, and product description. I change cover files all the time, and I'd like the ability to do that here. My preference is to work with Photoshop. Thanks!!
What to avoid
I'm not sure if any of the 3 images I've provided are royalty-free.

Alek was amazing to work with. His design was beautiful beyond expectation and really captured the mood of my story. He quickly and patiently responded to all changes I requested. I hope to work with him again in the future!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
