Mgar770 got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Create the next book cover for GSWIAm LLC (stands for God Speaks Within I Am)
Check out Mgar770's Book cover contest…
This book is an update of a book first published in 1991; title is Journal of ChristIAm. There will be other books plus website that focus on these messages similar to Neale Donald Walsch's Conversations With God. The organization and all activities are focused on sharing the messages and mirroring for people that they too can listen to God speak within.
What's your vision?
I'm attaching the original cover, front and back. To update it, I'm thinking of using a photograph which wraps continuously around front and back. For those designers who've been involved so far...I realize my first theme with rainbow will be great for the next book, but this one needs to feature a distinctive, single pine tree which was actually at the beginning of my adventure. I've attached pix of actual tree and a sketch I did for the original book. But I think I'd like to superimpose it on sky, either just faded blue color, or an actual photo. Can you do that? Left side of photo would be Back Cover; I'd like all the same wording on the cover as appeared in the first edition. Placing it, color, font, density etc. are what I need designed. The back cover will have a row of subject words across top plus the 2 quotes, but I'm open to completely new design superimposed on the photograph.... Or, skip photo and just create a design :-) I'd like to include a thumbnail of the original book and note that this is an update of the 1991 original with Marilyn's update. P.S. Contest was extended because my numerous, extensive comments on designs failed did not get saved because I didn't know to end by pressing the comment button :-( Please don't get discouraged; I Will pick a cover! Thanks.
I actually don't care for the present cover font, however I do like th"J" to have a serif at the top because it's easier to tell what it is. So if you want to keep the same cover font, I'm OK with it, just wish for an alternate that may be more eye-catching and contemporary. I appreciate your help on this project.
