This is the second time I have used 99designs.com for a book cover. I truly enjoy the process of seeing the different covers develop. The designers have been exceptional to work with and make every effort to follow my guidelines. I would recommend this process anytime, and will use it again in the future when I need a design.

The book is titled 'A Bullet for Carlos'
I am thinking of a dark cover, with a light/silver bullet racing across the page from left to right. If there is room, perhaps put the title inside the bullet.
author's name is Giacomo Giammatteo
there will be reviews on the back cover of the print edition and a short description inside the jacket.
I will need a design for online viewing, like on Amazon. This is most critical as this is where the bulk of the exposure will be. I will also need a cover for a hardcover book and possibly a paperback.
The cover should present a dark image. This is about two detectives and a serial killer and a drug lord.
target audience is primarily readers of mystery/suspense/thriller books.
although I like the idea of the bullet across the screen with the name in it, I am completely open to other ideas.
