We are looking for an ebook cover for I Am Alive!: A United States Marine's Story of Survival in a World war II Japanese POW Camp, by U.S. Marine Sergeant Major Charles R. Jackson. Edited by Major Bruce H. Norton, USMC (Ret.). You can view the original book here: http://amzn.com/0345449118. We cannot use this cover design for contractual reasons and need a new one. The challenge here is to find an appropriate image from the WWII image in the Pacific. We do not have rights to the original image (and do not know the source).
The cover should be engaging when viewed in the thumbnail view at online booksellers, and not just full-sized. I am attaching the logo for Quadrant Books, which should be positioned top left or bottom left. It should not be overly prominent.
Because the memoir is by a US Marine, using the Marines' red and gold colors may be helpful, but as the story is a somewhat bleak one, don't get too cheery.
The colon between the title and subtitle should not appear on the cover, as the sub-title should be below the title. Please do not incorporate the US Marines logo, as that is covered by trademark when used for commercial purposes.
