Looking for a cover for a science fiction Epos. Part 1
The first book of my "EXPLORATION CAPRI" series is from 2014. I love the old cover, but it's now outdated, outdated and too black and white. The font also needs a major overhaul. In short: The old cover is not professional. Nevertheless, the first part has sold over 10,000 copies.
So now I want a brand new, modern, more colorful cover, an eye-opener that can spark the series into a new life and bring out the full potential. I'm looking for the perfect cover for "Part 1 Inferno" that magically attracts shoppers and science fiction lovers.
I've already had a remake made, but that's only rated as good. Who can make me an even hotter remake, may like to try. But I'm also open to new great ideas that I do not even think about.
What does the new cover have to do?
• It must show that it is clearly a science fiction book. Exploration Capri is Hard SF
• It must represent the title.
• It must be an eye-opener / an eyecatcher in Amazon Store and animate to buy.
• I want it more colorful, but no rainbow.
• It should be dark and gloomy at the same time. Threatening.
Possible motifs for the cover / central elements of the first part "Inferno"
The earth in the near future. It is the year 2033.
When the volcano Vesuvius erupts in the Gulf of Naples, an even more terrible catastrophe happens on the nearby island of Capri. An extraterrestrial massive artifact of planetary size located in the core of the planet (Secret in Part 1) destroys the island with an immense white (fire) energy beam (5km in diameter).
The energy beam drives a distant planet (19 light-years away). 60 years later, a mission is to start, to reach with the help of the beam of Capri the distant planet. The mission of the spaceship "Explorer" begins.
Central elements for the cover can therefore be the following:
• The catastrophe of Capri, where a 5-kilometer energy beam destroys the island
• Two planets. The earth and the planet Capri (bluegreen like Earth)
• The universe, starry sky
• The white energy beam from one planet to another
other elements could be:
• The volcanic eruption of Vesuvius
• The constellation Cassiopaie / the star Achird AB as target
Suprises me :)
I would like to see if the main title of the book is to be found above and the structure of the cover has similarities to the covers of part 4 and 5.
The font must not be too small. The main title must be easy to read in the small pictures of the Amazon Shop.
A word about the following books Part 2 - Part 5. (Part 6 will bepublished in 2020)
You can also see all other covers and other artworks for the first part "Inferno" on my Facebook page. facebook.com/explorationcapri
All books should get an update. Especially the font of the title has to be renewed. The covers of part 4 and part 5 are retained (only new font). Whether Cover 2 and 3 will follow here, I do not know yet. But I need from the winner the license to use the font design of Part 1 "Inferno"
