PLEASE use this design as a guide. It has not been published. This is the design started by another designer but she was unable to finish it. This is an actual photo of the dog, which I really want to use. I really like this design.

I've used CreateSpace in the past, and I'll probably use IngramSpark this time. I'm not sure what the differences in the cover design would be due to this difference. The book will be 5x8 inches, and about 250 pages. I was working with a designer who began a design, which I've included in the zip file. I really like it, so I'd like to stay with this idea; however, I'm open to other ideas, too. I love the "nose" picture of the dog. I like that contrast of the "drawn" mountain picture, but I'm not sure the colors are quite right on the first design. I'd love some ideas for that. I love the way the subtitle kind of meanders along the mountains. On the back, I'd like one or two photos of the family, maybe with a frame around it.
Lo que debe evitarse
We don't need stock imagery for this because I have photos of the dog and the family.
I really like this photo of Murphy. This should be on the front cover.
One sample cover that I really like.
Other sample cover, with the mountain photo (faded) as the background. I think I like the other one better.
Other photo for back cover. Cute!!
Photo of Murphy's family for back cover.
Publisher logo for spine.
