I have a few ideas on the cover concept but am open for suggestion.
I would like to include the photo of me in back of Ute as well as
maybe a clock/stopwatch which references the title "Split Second" -
The book is called Split Second because that is how long an officer
has to make a decision which could save or end someones life, to
arrest or investigate...
Maybe have the image of the ute faded in the back but still visible??
Can the images flow from front to back cover?
Maybe there could also be some words floating around the cover like
PTSD, courage, honour, integrity, hope, family, resilience, pride,
dedication, acceptance, awareness, support, gratitude, help, MATES,
change the way we think, help a mate before its too late, etc - maybe
in yellow in cursive handwriting?
Because the book relates to policing you could use the glow of the
red/blue lights of police vehicle, the blue police crime scene tape -
no writing on it
