This book cover is your baby! You are the professional and I'd like you to have creative freedom with your design for a book that has already made an impact on 10's of thousands of people. Be a part of that by making the book even more engaging with your own awesome design!
With that said, I was happy with the last cover design (the previous cover design is attached for your reference). It was clean, simple, and just 'playful' enough while still being respectable to be taken seriously by educators. The design was getting slightly dated, however, so I'd like a more modern concept. That's where you come in. Impress me! The main colors to be used are white, black, and red.
Dimensions: 5.5 inch width by 8.5 inch height.

The story is about a girl learning to rock climb in Las Vegas and is mostly set in Red Rock Canyon, Nevada. Therefore, if you use imagery, it should be of a young female climber and Red Rock Canyon! (Please, no bare bellies or low-cut shirts in the images of climbers.)
If you want to use stock photography, that is fine, and I will buy the rights to the winning design. See the 'other details' description for image links.
You can also use image(s) of rope, climbing gear, quickdraws, caribeaners, harnesses, climbing shoes, and/or whatever you think will make an awesome design. Just remember that 'clean' is important and it shouldn't be 'busy.'
Climb On! is a parable story that will show you how to achieve success in whatever you may choose to pursue, whether it be to go to college, get an ‘A’ in chemistry, get promoted, eventually own a beauty salon, or even go on more dates!
In this high-altitude adventure tale, a fictional student moves to Sin City, Las Vegas. Forty minutes away from her new hometown is rock climbing mecca, Red Rock Canyon. There, a mix of eccentric characters meets every weekend to do battle with the vertical sandstone cliffs. Thrown into their mix, our student begins applying the brilliantly simple lessons she learns from her mentors and uncovers a way to get what she wants out of life... and love what she gets.
No matter the altitude of your dream, this amazing metaphor story will teach you how to reach your personal summit.
