What's your vision?
I need a book cover for my science fiction novel, Trespassing. It is the first of a trilogy so following covers could have related design features. Cover design needs to work for both a 6x9 trade paperback print version, front, spine, and back but must also work well as a thumb nail for ebook displays. My main character is a female mercenary that gets stuck between the warring factions, some who are with the government agency created for the book and some with the bad guys. My aliens are pure energy that need human hosts so something abstract may be good but I like Iain M Banks and Gibson covers and the one I attached, which is far from abstract. My main character is a brunette, think Tomb Raider Reborn, she is a no frills, kick ass chick who loves her Jericho .941. The reality of the world is very close to our own so the ultra futuristic look is too far ahead. Back cover blurb will be something akin to this: A bellicose mercenary is unexpectedly reunited with her brother. Twins separated at birth, Lysandra and Brendan grew up under very different circumstances and live vastly different lives. A reunion was never something she looked for and now cannot escape, literally. Lysandra is a successful career criminal. Brendan works for a branch of Homeland Security known as the Department of Planetary Affairs. When she is caught in the act of industrial espionage by Brendan, it is a surprise to everyone. The operation goes awry and she is injured and abandoned by her colleagues in crime giving Brendan the opportunity he has looked forward to his whole life, the chance to know his sister. The Department is charged with monitoring the activities of an energy based life form called Elbie who must have human hosts to exist. Being a host for some people is a great benefit, for others it is a terrible nightmare. Brendan is of the second group. His experiences with Elbie have put him in a unique position, one that has made him a vital piece to their ambitions. Esben is of the first group. Having been a willing host for years he is closely watched by the Department. The arrival of Lysandra is important to Elbie for one reason; Brendan will do anything for his sister. She is the key to getting to him. In his attempts to compel Lysandra to their cause, Esben soon realizes that while it’s Brendan they need, it is Lysandra that Esben wants. Trapped between her brother’s doting attention and Esben’s determined interest, Lysandra bides her time for the opportunity to disappear. Things will not go as she hoped and she will have to choose between saving her brother and betraying him. ---------------------------------------- I attached the logo of the government agency in the book that deals with the aliens. I want that on the back along with the words: From the DPA Declassified Files. My target demographic would be people who are fans of Firefly, super heroes in general, Doctor Who, and such. My only request is no neon colors other than that I am open to just about any design.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Kelvarus collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
