I'm an independent author who is getting ready to begin a new Christian fiction series (If all goes well, it will consist of a minimum of 10 volumes). What I'm looking for right now is someone with excellent design skills who works in a timely fashion and is easy to get along with. I'm looking for someone who would be interested in designing the covers for every book in the series - not all at once, but one per month or so.
So for now... let's start with one cover. Show me what you can come up with and we'll go from there. I need both an ebook cover (for uploading to kdp and a print version to be uploaded through createspace - the print version will be 275 cream colored pages and the book size will be 5x8
Title: Rebuilding Alden
Also to be included on the cover: Book 1 - Worthy Battle Series
Author: JR Thompson (please do not put dots after the letters JR and please do not put the R in lower case, but spell it just like I did)
FYI: The probation officer is a white male in his early twenties
Alden is a rough-looking 13-year old white male
The setting will be inner city
Other than that, I am not going to add physical descriptions until the cover is designed - that should give you more liberty to show off your creativity.
Here's the blurb to appear on the back cover (and to give you an idea as to how to design the cover):
Philip Bones can't help but see potential in his new probationer, 13-year-old Alden. The angry, self-centered teenager takes pride in his bullying skills, despises authority figures, and considers acts of violent intimidation his favorite pastime.
Bones doesn't want to see the young man placed in juvie. He'll do anything to prevent that - including giving up his free, off-the-clock time to mentor him.
But is it enough? Can one man's influence rescue Alden from self-destruction?
To also appear on the back cover: Christian novelist JR Thompson, and his wife Hannah, are residents of Montana. He writes fiction and maintains a blog on his website. None of Thompson's writings contain any foul language. For additional information, please visit [login to view URL]
“Wow! I am totally impressed. This is the first time I have used freelancer.com and I had no idea what to expect. I received a lot of good entries, but Rade's was fabulous! I'm hoping he will consider doing the covers for every book in my series as this was the cover for the first of what I'm hoping will be at least 10 volumes. Job well done!”
