I am an indie author writing science fiction and fantasy books.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I need a book cover designed that is classic science fiction - a space ship with a planet or asteroid in the background. The ship is the Valkyrie 4, an experimental ship with power armor that can stop just about all conventional weapons while dishing out its own punishment. This ship is to space fleets what the USS Monitor was to wooden ships -- it represents the beginning of a new age of technology in a universe that already has faster-than-light travel and colonies spread throughout the galaxy.
For scale, the Valkyrie is based on the hull of a cruiser that normally has a crew of about 40, so it should be a relatively small ship -- no massive death-star sized vessels.
Its nemesis -- which you can also picture if you like -- is an equally experimental ship from the aliens known as the Kull. It is a biologically based ship and is the antithesis of the high-tech Valkyrie.
The cover needs to incorporate the art, the name of the book (Valkyrie 4) and my name, Todd Shryock (please be careful of spelling). This will be a Create Space cover (Amazon) and an ebook cover. I can supply a template, but the primary size is about 5x8.
