Thank you so much for working on this project! I really enjoy all of the enthusiasm, effort, and creativity that I've already seen!
Please focus on the dimensions, proportions, and look of the paperback cover of the book, the kindle version is secondary and can be based off of the paperback version. Thanks.
Here's some fun mood music that I think could help to nicely define this cover: Carol of the Bells - Trans-Siberian Orchestra https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sCabI3MdV9g
I'm thinking the word "Liberation" should be kept to no more than one line... Unless your design can convince me that more than one line is better. The words Liberation and Day could be in one it two lines, but don't have to be.
Typical Amazon dimensions please (see bottom of this section for details). It must look great as a thumnail, not too busy, crowded, or complicated. Some words and phrases to describe what I'm looking for on the cover: Impact, Epic, Astonishing, Amazing, Radical, Life Changing, Epiphany, World Changing, the big bang (not the actual one, just the concept), the New Beginning, a new day is dawning, new birth, Renaissance, Liberty, Freedom, Freedom from tyrrany, being set free from prison, breaking free from bondage or chains, amazing, pivotal, the most pivotal moment, Transcend, euphoria, amazing, serious, traditional (I recommend you look at the Amazon non-fiction bestsellers and somewhat conform that sort of format.. Unless you can wow me in some other way), Classic (meaning I want it to look great ten years from now, but I'd still be fine with it capturing the essence of today),. For inspiration, I like this image at the top of my article: https://medium.com/liberation-day/w…05f8a70cb4

Paperback: (by CreateSpace)
5.25" x 1.025" x 8" - This is my book trim size, and this is my book cover size. (The thickness may change as I finalize my book and its page count)
Hardcover: (by IngramSpark)
I know Hardcover isn't included, but eventually I think I'll want it, same as softcover but the dust jacket will be a little bigger...
5.5" x 0.95" x 8.5" inches - This is my book dust jacket size, or at least an estimate. Do you know the standard dust jacket size for a 5.25" x 0.95" x 8" trim book? If so, use that please. (The thickness may change as I finalize my book and it's page count)
