Task Description
I need a book cover design for a realistic, modern day Zombie novel for the "young adult" age range of ages 12+

To appeal to this age range, the book cover does not have to be particularly imaginitive. What it needs to do is convey the ideas of the book, which are as follows in orders of importance:

"epicness" (basically the cool-factor)

There does not need to be an emphasis on the main characters, but rather the emphasis should be on "survival." I was thinking something along the lines of a horde of zombies in a city, with a convoy of cars approaching it. Something that really grasps the viewer, and preferably scares them a bit too.

Additionally, the zombies in my book are a realistic take. They do not slowly stagger around, eating brains. They are simply humans, infected with a virus which transforms them into fast, deadly raging machines (although they are still quite dumb)

The key point to remember when designing the book cover, is survival. It has to shout out to the person walking by in the store, that it is a book about Surviving the Zombie Apacolypse

Include some dramatic elements, possibly some guns, use your creativity. I look forward to seeing your quotes.
