I am publishing a book, both as an e-book and a printed version.
What's your vision?
I have written a book with the title: I Am With You, Subtitle: Communicating with the Earth, which I am self-publishing as an e-book and Print-on-demand and would like to get a good cover design to use for both versions. It is an account of personal experiences that I have had communicating with the Earth from within. It describes how these communications came about and includes annotated transcripts of a series of "conversations" that I had with the Earth back in 1996, interspersed with more recent material as well as my own comments and thoughts about what I received. Taking the communications that I received at face value, the Earth is saying that it is alive and desiring to contact us all consciously, both individually and collectively. It goes so far as to propose the building of a device with which the Earth can communicate with us in our language. It is also saying that we humans are the determiners of any communication between us and the Earth, i.e. that it will only occur if we are open to this possibility and actively seek this contact. This book, then, is like a ring signal from the Earth, waiting for us to "pick up the phone". Since the idea that the Earth is alive "like you and me" is out there at the very fringe of social discourse, I want to avoid the impression that this is a "channeled" or "New Age Book" (I see the mode of communication as being more akin to telepathy) and would therefore prefer a sober, toned down cover, preferably with a photo of the Earth. Personally, I believe that the mainstream is slowly inching its way toward the idea that the Earth is alive (see the Gaia Theory) and to me this has nothing to do with spirituality or mysticism. It is simply a real possibility that needs to be pursued. As inspiration, I am sending you a "working cover" that I came up with, with a NASA photograph of the Earth and the Moon. I am also attaching two cover ideas/concepts created by a friend of mine using thumbnails from the internet. The actual images in these designs are not available to use as the cover itself, since they are royalty images and I do not own the copyright or the right to use them. I am also attaching two images of the Earth that you could use as the basis for a cover. They are NASA images and are not copyrighted. The size of the book will be 5 x 8". I would like to get the full cover (spine and back cover as well). Please leave a space for a picture of the author, which will have 459 x 560 pixels. The ISBN for the e-book version is 978-3-9814889-0-6, and for the printed version it is 978-3-9814889-1-3. The bar code will be provided later by Lightning Source who will be printing the book (leave space). The cover needs to be a minimum of 300 dpi and preferably 600 dpi, in a jpg or tif file. I am including the back cover text. Good luck and thanks for your efforts. Sten PS. I live in Frankfurt Germany, which means that I'm 6 hours ahead of EST.
