I write an extremely popular blog - People I Want to Punch in the Throat.com and this is my first book inspired by the blog. I am looking for a front cover, spine and back cover for the soft cover book. It will measure 6x9 and be approximately 140 pgs. I will also use the art work for e-book (createspace) so I will need a pdf as well as a jpg file for Kindle e-book publishing. There will need to be room on the back cover for a short synopsis (provided), About the author (provided) and 4 short blurbs.
BACK COVER COPY:
From the popular, hysterical and
award-winning blogger Jen of People I Want to Punch in the Throat.com

room on your bookshelf next to A Christmas Carol and Rudolph
the Red-Nosed Reindeer for Spending the Holidays with People I
Want to Punch in the Throat.
So, grab a cup of hot cocoa, sit back and enjoy Jen's latest collection of humorous rants dissecting the
“most wonderful time” of the year. She unleashes her biting wit and hilarious opinions on everything from cookie exchanges to annual humble brag Christmas letters from over achieving moms to horrifying

About the Author:
Jen is the author of the popular blog http://www.peopleiwanttopunchinthethroat.com. name pretty much says it all. It's not “Rainbows & Unicorns,” people. She's been accused of saying what everyone else is thinking and dropping the f-bomb liberally.
“Jen's passionate and provocative writing packs a wallop. Her rants are hot-tempered, hilarious and full of heartfelt honesty (although she denies having a heart). Jen is fearless, unapologetic and authentic. People who don't read her stuff should be punched in the throat.”
-Nikki Knepper, author of Moms Who Drink and Swear: How to Love the Little Bastards in Your Life
“Please read my mom's book, because it will make her feel pretty.” - Gomer, 7
“OMG, Mom, this book is so embarrassing for you.” - Adolpha, 5
END OF BACK COVER COPY
The book is called "Spending the Holidays with People I Want to Punch in the Throat". I think if you read some excerpts from my blog, you will see that I have an irreverent and sarcastic sense of humor. I've included some photos that the designers can use, but it's not required. Illustrations are fine too. I am open to seeing what you come up with. If I knew how to make a great looking cover I wouldn't be here. I would like to see what the designers come up with - be creative and surprise me with your humor and your talent.
