Last night Facebook got a sneak peek at a concept cover for The Black Hebrew Awakening: The Last 400 Years of Slavery In America. It will be available in Paperback and on Kindle. Take a look at these three covers and vote on which one you like the most.

Front Cover Concept #1
Originally, I wanted something so simple that it would stand out among the thousands of other flashy book covers to choose from. This is the cover everyone on Facebook saw… but it feels too simple to me.
Front Cover Concept #2
There were actually a couple versions of this cover. The first featured prison bars… rejected. The black brick with white mortar makes it pop more than the flat background while staying true to the simplistic idea.
Front Cover Concept #3
Believe it or not, this cover embodies everything I want the book to stand for. The audience it’s intended for will automatically know it’s intended for them. The absence of a title and author name will make people want to at least pick it up and look at the back cover to see what the book is about.
Also, there will probably be many people that won’t even pick up the book based on the title alone, so the absence of it on the cover may at least get them to look inside and have their attention captured by something they see or read.
Back Cover Concept
In my opinion, this cover works best with Concept #3. People naturally look at the back cover after they view the front. A single Bible verse about 400 years of slavery combined with the fist on the cover gives those it’s meant for enough to be curious and open the book. My goal is to create a conversation piece that can lay on a table and yet grab tons of attention without any flashy cover gimmicks or buzz words.
