Book Cover Design. Revelations 12:12 is an epic story of religious mythology, horror, and science fiction where God is real, Heaven and Hell exist, and humanity stands along the frontline in the ultimate war between good and evil.
The overall concept for the book cover is the Armies of Hell passaging through a flaming Hellgate to descend upon and conquer planet Earth.
The demonic invasion force consists of 13x “Spire” class dropships and 1x “Overlord” command vessel. The Spire dropships are a mix between towering spires of rock and intergalactic troop transports designed to crash down upon and subsequently overtake the Earth. The Overlord vessel is massive command vessel used to oversee the invasion force. I acknowledge that there are likely few stock photos out there which mirror these descriptions. I am willing to accept a fairly high degree of artistic license when producing the Hell Army invasion force elements of the book cover.
The Hellgate is basically a fiery portal situated high above the Earth’s surface, and an infernal gateway capable of transporting the Armies of Hell across the Universe.
Inside / looking through the Hellgate is the silhouette of a man dressed in a black suit and tie (representing the devil).
The book cover is centered on the planet Earth. Beneath the Earth is the hand of God reaching out to hold the planet.
The background of the cover is space with stars.
The back cover of the book includes the website logo, ISBN, quote, and description of the book.
Font. I’ve used Century Gothic with a black outline for the title and author name. For the back cover text I’ve used Italic font for the quote, and regular Century Gothic text for the book description. Feel free to select a different font as you see fit.
Text. The cover art text is the following:

“Therefore rejoice, you heavens, and you that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabitants of the Earth and the sea, for the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has but little time.”
- Revelations 12:12
After a horrific vision of the coming apocalypse, Michael Vox awakens in a mental institution and is confronted by the Archangel Gabriel, the Messenger of God. Gabriel tells Michael that his visions are real, the armies of Hell have begun their advance across the universe, and warns of the impending fall of the Earth. Gabriel cites three visions, the Word, the Way, and the Will, with Michael as the first of three chosen to lead humanity and the heavens to salvation from the end of all things.
Revelations 12:12 is an epic story of religious mythology, horror, and science fiction in which God exists, Heaven and Hell are real, and humanity stands along the frontline in the ultimate war between good and evil.
