This cover is for the first book in a series.
The series is called THE LAW WRANGLERS.
The book title is DEAL WITH THE DEVIL.
Both the series title and book title should be on the cover. Additionally the number "1" should be on the cover somewhere to indicate the book is the first in the series.
The author's name is RON SCHWAB.
This is a Western novel that takes place in the 1880s in New Mexico and Texas. You can google images for "palo duro canyon" or "staked plains" to get an idea of some of the scenery.
As this is a Western novel, men or women on horseback would be images that could be used. Comanche Indians also are a prominent element in the novel, they could be used for images, as well.
In general, we want designers to be creative and welcome different ideas, but here are links to some book covers we like:
The cover should be 5.25 inches wide by 8 inches tall (at least 300 dpi) for the front, and we will need a back and spine for the print version; however, you may submit just a cover for the first round, if you wish, so you do not have to do as much work upfront.
I have attached our logo, which will eventually need to be on the back cover of the book.
