Please design a book cover that will suit both an ebook on amazon and a print book. The print book will be 5" x 8" - indd. template attached. 300 DPI resolution, CMYK colour space, 180 LPI. Please use the indd. template.
The ebook cover should be in jpeg format, the longest side 2500 pixels, 72 DPI, RGB colour mode, and a height/width ratio of at least 8:5 (https://kdp.amazon.com/help?topicId…TRG6OPX0VM)
The book is humorous, straightforward, and a little quirky. It is not a sugar-coated self-help book. Part memoir, part advice, this book seeks to be pragmatic and comforting and put a smile on the readers face.
I think I want a black and white cover (greys also acceptable), but am open to suggestions. My key goal is simple and eye catching.
I prefer illustrations / vector.
I Do Not want any photos of pregnant women or bellies. Please avoid the cliched picture of a woman looking lovingly at her bump, or who has her hand on her bump while gazing into the mid-distance - this is not the style I'm after.
Please include the title: Hatch and Dispatch
Subtitle: Tales and advice from a midwife
Authors: Vicki Bryce with Alisa Bryce
Please make Vicki's name more prominent.
Apart from that - go for it. Maybe include a nurse in the design, maybe not. Open to all ideas.
