We Like These Examples

Like the color palate with a feeling of healing. Graphic conveys sense of freedom. Text is a bit small for thumbnail size
Elegant design, warm colors
Simple design, but text is a little small for a thumbnail
Feel free to go in a completely different direction from these.

Back cover text:
It is estimated that one in twelve Americans is dealing with addiction to alcohol or drugs. Millions more are beset by behavioral addictions such as gambling and pornography. The human cost of this epidemic is enormous, both for the victims and their families. Many 12-Step programs and other forms of treatment have been developed to help those who want to be free, with varying degrees of success.
A missing ingredient in these programs is the understanding of the unseen forces that make addiction so difficult to overcome. These forces have been known for centuries, yet they are often discounted in the modern scientific/mechanistic approach to disease and healing.
_Wanting to Be Free_ explores the invisible forces behind addiction and offers spiritual tools that provide new hope for those dealing with addiction. It also presents an integrated approach to addiction, outlining the most effective mental, emotional and physical therapies to support those pursuing the path to true freedom.
Neroli Duffy worked for ten years as a medical doctor in Australia and England. She now serves as a minister, writing and lecturing internationally on spirituality, healing and the teachings of the ascended masters.

Price: $11.95 U.S.
Please provide source files and production files used to create the cover so that modify the cover ourselves as needed. (For example, we will need to create a Spanish version of the cover in a few months.)
The book will be sold primarily on Amazon, so the design needs to be readable and stand out even at thumbnail size.
We envision healing, peaceful colors on the cover, avoiding black, red and orange.
