I need a book cover designed for my self-published book, "A Dinosaur Ate Your Alien," available as a softcover and ebook on Amazon. It is the story of an advanced race of alien squid who come to Earth to barter, but they don't realize that Earth is still in the Stone Age. It's a science fiction comedy about the clashes between the alien squid and the primitive cavemen they meet. My book is currently available on Amazon (as an ebook only) here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00D9VT6L6/ref=s9_simh_gw_p351_d1_i1?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=1TM3HHNE649EE0XGQ2BJ&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=1688200382&pf_rd_i=507846. DO NOT base your design on this cover: I am looking for fresh ideas. I did have the concept that maybe a good cover would be a dinosaur licking his lips as he chases an alien who is chasing a caveman, with the caveman running out of frame on the bottom of the cover. But feel free to submit whatever ideas you like. I have also attached my concept of what the aliens look like, but feel free to ignore that too. The only requirements for the aliens is that they look like they are described in the first chapter of my book, which you can read for free as part of the book sample on Amazon. Also, the dinosaur in the story is a T-Rex. For the back cover blurb, please use this text: "Mel Brooks mashed with Monty Python, Star Trek and Jurassic Park." --Amazon review The squid of the planet Steranko have a problem. Their king is a lunatic, the last of their once-proud space fleet has been reduced to a theme restaurant, and the population's only ambition is to catch all of their soaps. So when a mineral shortage triggers a planetwide crisis, it's time to go where no squid has gone before: out of their comfort zone. Light-years away, the people of Earth aren't doing too well, either. The cavemen there are in constant danger of becoming extinct, whether it's from the elements, predators or their own poor table manners. Anyone with half a brain would want to get out of town. But there's only one person on the planet who meets that requirement. He's Cro, the first Cro-Magnon man in a world of Neanderthals, and he's about to meet an alien race that's truly ahead of their time. Will Cro sell out his people for the sake of a good conversation? Does brains versus brawn really matter at the wrong end of a club? And how does an alien from another galaxy get an Irish accent? It's ET vs BC in a comic culture clash! Thank you and good luck!
I am looking for a book cover that is realistically rendered but also has a sense of humor/whimsy to it. I want a cover that I can use the front cover for my ebook and the entire design (front/back and spine) for the softcover version. I would like both a PDF and a .PSD file of the final file (assuming that's how you're building it.)
