Philip W. Arnold
Phil Arnold is a middle school History teacher in Garden Valley Idaho. He has written many stories for outdoor magazines. This is his second book.
This is a fast paced adventure story of survival. After their helicopter is shot down, John and Angela, the pilot and door gunner, must survive the brutal elements and the Taliban.
Young adults and adults.
I picture two figures a male and female. Perhaps a crashed army helicopter can be in the background. The male who is dressed in army desert camouflage is carrying the female piggyback. She is dressed in an olive drab one piece flight suit. You see their backs only because they are looking at the Afghanistan mountains in front of them. I want the focus of the cover to be the rugged snow covered mountains they have to climb. If you want to you could try a side view to get a look of terror or concern on their faces but that is not necessarily. I really want the mountains to look realistic and rugged. Crashed helicopter might grab more readers but that is your choice
What to avoid
I want this to look realistic not abstract. Find “Suicide Plunge” by Philip W.Arnold online (smashwords) to see the cover of my first book and that will give you an idea of what I like.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at $399.
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Parnold collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
