I need the second book in my series designed for a soft cover and ebook (I will provide the template from createspace where the book will be printed.) I will also provide the first installment of the book that was created here at 99designs. This book is the second in the series and I need it to match in some way with the first book. For Example: I would like the stone font used for "Ancient Guardians" (I will supply the image of the first book for an example) I need this to match due to the fact I want it to match the first book in the series. The font used for the title of this book "The Uninvited" could be used differently that the font used for the first book (The Legacy of the Key) Instead of the fancy (Legacy of the Key script) I would like something more mysterious as this book is more of a thriller. The S.L. Morgan needs to resemble the first font, however, I would like the color changed to silver instead of the current gold in the cover of the first book. Picture layout. As you will see in the legacy of the Key, it has the Key as the most dominant part of the cover with a glowing, more enchanting bluish background. I would like to follow with this theme; however, I would like a long midieval sword (I will try and post a picture of the sword) in the foreground. (Like the Key is on the first book cover.) I would like it to appear in a forest (like the Legacy of the Key) the front part of the book with "black light, glowing like features in a forest or on a forest trail) fading off with a misty like appearance and a castle in the distance. In this book the Guardian Warriors fight another dimension and they must retrieve their person of interested that is in the castle. I would like the color them, to appear red (instead of the blue of the first book.) I will do my best to provide examples. I also like the way the front of the book fades into the spine and back of the book. As you will see in the layout of the first book, the back cover shows the script around the Key. I would also like to see this done with this book cover, but with the long sword replacing the key. A straight arrow or an arrow secretly place on the front of the cover) where it says: Book I is also needed. (You can see in the pictures) I really need this to be the same as the first book, as it is the second in this series. The spine as well needs to have the same wording and pictures (Sword replacing the key). I wish all of you luck and I know my book is in the good hands of excellent designers and I look forward to seeing your results. I hate having to judge and pick the best one, because when I did this last time, it was so hard to pick the final winner. Please take no offense if your talented work is not approved, I must make sure that this book follows the first book in the series, so that it appears to be apart of it. Thank you in advance for considering taking on this project. In the other comments, I will post the back of the book description for you to use. Also, I will attach my author picture, to be used in the lower left corner with www.slmorganauthor.com written underneath it. Also I will attach a photo of the jewel-like blue eyes of the Pemdai Guardian warrior. If you can manage to discretely add this into the cover, It may add to the enhancement of the mystery/thrill of this book. Also. The long sword MUST have a blue (Shining) jewel in the middle of the handle. I will try and post a picture of how I added this effect on my own. I know you all can enhance this even better, maybe even make the blade of the sword (The sword will be pointing down as the dominant photo in the front of the book). Any questions, please contact me. I love the way this picture of the castle fades off into the distance and that is what I am looking for, except with the Long sword in the foreground pointing down. I like the eerie skies behind the castle as well. I really hope I was descriptive enough to help you imagine what I am seeing in my mind as the cover of this book. If you can use the images of the rider on the horse, (that is a guardian pursing battle) make sure that it is faded and possibly behind the sword, leading up to the eerie castle in the background. I have added as many images as I could to help with your design. Good Luck and I look forward to all of your masterpieces.
( Heading) I WILL FOREVER PROTECT HER WITH MY OWN LIFE Reece Bryant, a college student from Earth, had her entire life turned upside down when she discovered her true genealogy. Not only did she discover that life exists beyond Earth, but also that being brought into the dimension of Pemdas would change her life forever. After she falls helplessly in love with the Emperor of Pemdas’ son, Levi Oxley, she happily accepts his proposal of marriage, and she couldn’t be more excited to start her new life with him in this enchanting dimension. Everything is ideal, and Reece has never felt more content in her life, until unexpected occurrences begin to take place. Confident that Reece, the Key, is safe in Pemdas, the Guardians are busier than ever protecting Earth from other dimensions who seek to terrorize humans. After introducing Reece as his future wife into royal society, Levi and Harrison resume their duties on Earth where they come across an entity that the Pemdai Guardians have never encountered before. It is when this being is able to read into Levi’s mind, and discover he knows where the powerful stone is, that everything will change for him. In this installment of the Ancient Guardians series, you will be left guessing as you turn each page, and wondering who is orchestrating the bizarre events occurring within the protected lands of Pemdas. Prepare to encounter the Guardians as fierce warriors, bold and unafraid to do anything within their power to protect the Key, which they have sworn to guard for centuries.
