Was ist Ihre Vision?
I'm looking for a cover for the forthcoming Sci-Fi novel Time Heist, book one in the First Born Saga. The E-Book cover image has to be suitable for Amazon Kindle. Therefore, it should • meet the requirements of Kindle Direct Publishing: JPEG, RGB, 1875px x 2500, 300 dpi minimum • be visually appealing in black and white • serve as an eye-catcher even as a thumbnail – this is of prime importance! The cover for the print edition needs to be 5.5" x 8.5". The total length of the novel will be about 320 pages. I will provide more detailed information on the actual size as soon as possible. I'm not graphically minded so I'll give you the basic run down of what I'm thinking, but feel free to interpret my instructions how you see fit. If you have an idea that you think would work better, I am all ears and eyes. Time Heist is a Sci-Fi Action Adventure set a couple hundred years in the future. I'm thinking I'd like something similar (but with a fair share of differences) to the Green Lantern poster I've attached. The main character, Tom, would be standing on the right side of the cover in a similar pose to Ryan Reynolds, though possibly pushed further to the right so less of his left half is on the page. Here are the differences as I imagine them: In Tom's right hand there will be a small, silver cube, about the size of a Rubik's cube, emitting a greenish, or silver, glow. The skin of Tom's right forearm would be exposed with a faint red "counter" ticking down. The counter is similar in design and concept to the attached crop circle picture. (Story detail: in this world, that circle tracks people's remaining time). The light coming off the cube, and to a small degree coming off the Counter, illuminate Tom who is standing mostly in shadows. Light twinkles off his eyes, or something, but for the most part Tom is fairly non-descript and shadowy. On the left side of the cover, near the spine, Time Heist would be written out vertically, similar to the Red Rising cover. Here, again, the edges of the letters are illuminated by the light coming off the cube, and counter. There's also the Author Name, Anthony Vicino, and tagline "All you have is the time you're given, and the time you take." Dunno where to fit those, but I'll leave it to you creatively minded individuals. Possibly within the Tom's body similar to the Jumper poster I've attached a photo of. The spine would obviously say Time Heist down the side, Anthony Vicino at the bottom of the spine, and the One Lazy Robot logo, which is currently unavailable.
The Time Counter is kind of tricky. Think of it as an LED tattoo on the forearm. The innermost circle tracks years, of which it starts with 75, but for the purposes of this image is down to 0. The second innermost circle is days, of which it starts with 365 but for the purposes of the image is down to 1. The third innermost circle is hours, of which it starts with 24, which for the purposes of the image is down to 2. The next circle is minutes, of which the counter has 60. In the image, he would only have about 32 minutes. The next circle has 60 seconds, of which the counter would have about 45 or so. So, in all, Tom's counter reads, 1 day, 2 hours, 32 minutes, and 45 seconds. The counter starts with a full circle, and gets smaller as it ticks away. I admit this is a tricky part of the image. The Cube is simple. About the size of A Rubik's Cube, silver, and emitting either a green, or silver light. Tom, I imagine looks a bit like Hugh Jackman, (the image doesn't necessarily have to be a photo, could be a drawing) but most of his features are obscured by the play of shadow and light, if that makes sense. I'm bad at fonts and placements, so I'll leave you creatively inclined individuals to figure out all that good stuff. I like the style of Red Rising's back matter page. This quote will go towards the top of the page besides an author photo, with a blurb to follow below in the center/ bottom of page. Top of page excerpt in one color: “I’m going to line up everything you have ever loved,” Malcolm said. “Every cherished memory you clung to on those cold dark nights cowering alone, high out of your mind, gnawing on the barrel of your gun, praying tonight might be the night you find the strength to pull the trigger and end it. I will expose every fear you hide in the deepest recesses of your heart. I will make you face the reality of how much you truly stand to lose. Then, and only then, when death is no longer the cure for your sorrow, I will kill you.” Middle/bottom of page blurb in a different color: We tried to kill ourselves. We had the weapons. We had the desire. Somehow, we failed. Humanity survived. Go figure. They called it the Dissolution, but it’s been over two hundred years and if you ask around, nobody in Unity remembers what all the fuss was about. What everybody had been so willing to die for. Nobody cares. I don’t, at least. I’ve done my part. Worked Time Vice for the better part of twenty years putting the bad guys into a Stream dream. Now I want out. The numbers on my arm tell me I’ll be dead soon. Less than a day left. I can live with that. What I can’t live with is knowing a Unity Leader helped Malcolm Wolfe, the man who murdered my wife and a million other innocents, escape prison. Finding Malcolm means uncovering secrets that could tear Unity apart from the inside. But if I don’t stop him, there probably won’t be a Unity to save anyhow. Looks like we might get a chance to wipe ourselves out after all. Now, I just gotta catch him before my numbers catch me. ***Forgot to mention, Tom will be wearing a white or black tshirt and dark pants/jeans.** ***Below I've added a Hellboy poster that does a good job of contrasting the light and darks with the simple complexity I'm aiming for on this project.*** ****I've attached a Bioshock poster as an alternative design lay out if you'd rather explore that avenue. A couple of elements that might make that design easier are the cityscape in the background would have a very large/modern pyramid surrounded by smaller buildings on either side, a man and a woman falling (like in the image though the woman wouldn't be wearing a dress). The shadowed figure would more or less look very similar to the poster.**** Don't hesitate to email me if you have any questions. I love to hear your feedback.
