THIS IS A CHANGE TO THIS BRIEF: BOOK SIZE WILL BE 5.06 x 7.81 inches, 12.9 x 19.8 centimeters ======== Title: Launch Subtitle: Top Gun Strategies for Accelerating Productivity, Profits, and Peace of Mind Author Ed Rush 3-Time #1 Best Selling Author ================= Back Cover You can see the OLD version of this book cover here: http://www.edrush.com/OldBookCover.png (Don't use this for design ideas. It's just a reference...and it's not brand representative) On the back, the only text I need is the About the Author section: About The Author Anyone who has spent a significant amount of time in the cockpit of an F-18 fighter jet knows the value of strategy and the power of focus. Ed Rush is a speaker, a 3-time #1 best selling author, and a successful business consultant who has effectively taken the principles that he learned flying faster than the speed of sound, and translated them into good business. Ed has helped tens of thousands of event attendees and clients get more done in less time with less waste, not only giving clients the insights they need to grow, but gifting them with the power of implementation to change their businesses for better and for good. Ed is a sought after speaker, bringing his dynamic gifts to the stage in engaging ways that make his clients look great. Ed also serves as the “secret weapon” that over 300 companies have brought in “through the back door” to help them increase profit & decrease waste, consulting them with honesty and effectiveness. Ed’s books and expertise have been featured on CBS, FOX, ABC, NBC, and in the Opus Movie. To book Ed to speak or for consulting, head over to: www.EdRush.com.

I’m up for ANY OTHER ideas as long as it’s representative of a big time brand. (The old book cover wasn’t - thus the change) -- Here are a few examples of what I mean by “clean”: http://99designs.com/book-cover-design/contests/create-compelling-cover-best-selling-self-improvement-book-537189/entries https://forthesomedaybook.files.wordpress.com/2013/10/beautiful-outlaw.jpg http://www.thesuccessprinciplesbook.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/TSP-cover-600x857.jpg http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51dU1i1%2BAiL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg -- Please feel free to use any stock imagery or imagery you own the rights to.
