Book Cover Design
Final Trim Size: 5.5 X 8.5 inches

The Title of the book is: The Glimpse

The premise of the book is a story of hope and survival amidst Christian persecution. The story has many dark elements of Christians being oppressed, but there is also a strong underground church surviving and growing. (A great example is the current underground churches in China and North Korea). The main characters have been transported supernaturally to this world. Although they are willing to help, and have accepted that God sent them there for a purpose, they have a strong desire to get back to their lives as they know it.

The best design will create a quick, vibrant first impression that is highly inviting to the potential reader to pick up and explore. It should not look like a horror book. Must also look attractive as a thumb picture for the e-book version.

Cover will be printed in full color front and back.

LIKES AND DISLIKES:
* Less is more.
* The design should be simple enough to identify as a web thumbnail
* I like More visual than textual

OVERALL MOOD AND FEEL:
This is a "spiritual" theme but should not use overtly religious symbols such as angels, crosses, etc. This is a fiction book and there is a "clashing" of darkness and light. It would be great if the book cover had this element.

Although the title is "The Glimpse", this is metaphorical. I don't want eyeballs, for example. It simply means they are "glimpsing" into the future of the Church.

IMAGE SUGGESTIONS:I don't have a specific concept for the artwork/photo work and are looking for a creative idea.  I'm picturing the images to be almost dreamlike and abstract. I want the mood to be dark and eerie yet with hope, represented by light.
