This fiction book is a thriller / political commentary. The book is entitled "Be Aggressive" and was written by me, Laremy Legel.
Design elements that could be used on the cover include:
Mass Media (Television, Magazines)
A shadowy image of a single man
Newspaper copy / headlines
Biting/Teeth (I realize this us hard with imagery)
But please don't limit yourself to these visuals if you have a better notion,.
If it helps, in the book my main character is involved in a hijacking attempt, becomes a "hero" and then becomes embroiled in mass media both to promote his side of the story and fight back against criticisms, both rumor and innuendo. The book was originally titled 'Counterpunch' but that title has been used quite a few times, so I went with the current title. The main characters name is Brian Evans, thus the BE in 'Be Aggressive'.
The book specs are:
6" x 9" (15.24 x 22.86 cm)
Black & White on White paper
I've uploaded PDF and JPG templates that must be followed for winning design. Though this cover is color, I'd prefer the cover be legible in gray scale as well. I've included some thriller covers I like as a best practice, but I am completely open to different ideas on the fonts/ author font size. I would like the title of Be Aggressive to stand out, but I know that they will need to work with your design elements as well.
I will provide bio and picture elements for back cover for the winner to incorporate during the handover process.
