Describe your company and organization and target audience

We are a Christian book publisher.

The design should have the following

Fantastic, full, book cover requested for a new book written by a Christian minister. Several butterflies would work well since there is a single butterfly on the first book. Butterflies signify transformation. However, they are NOT required. Creativity is encouraged. The front cover background design should extend across the entire spine. This will minimize printing/trimming irregularities I find with this printer. This printer does not allow ANY part of the spine text to be in the safety area.
An InDesign, EPS and PDF Template is supplied as well as instructions on using that template. OUTPUT REQUIRED: Press-Ready PDF (preferably PDF/X-1a:2001 and PDF/X-3:2002) along with native source files. TITLE: Then and Now Part II.

AUTHOR: Bonnie Baker. TRIM: 6” x 9". SPINE WIDTH Spine = 0.23" = 5.842 mm).
COLOR SPACE: CMYK. BLEED: 0.125" (3 mm) all sides.
TYPE SAFETY: 0.25" (6 mm) recommended minimum on all sides.
SPINE TEXT SAFETY: 0.03125" (1 mm) left/right sides.
PLEASE DO NOT RESIZE (CHANGE THE SIZE OF) THE BARCODE. Since this spine is thin, the trick is to make the spine text as legible as possible keeping browser distance in mind. SPINE TEXT - Author first, then title, then publisher, Christian Living Books, Inc. BACK COVER TEXT: (supplied in text file). Don’t forget to put the title of the book in italics. PLEASE DO NOT RESIZE (CHANGE THE SIZE OF) THE BARCODE.
