What's your vision?
I need a front and back cover designed for my first book. It will be printed soft cover book. The Titleis: "THE Book on Personal Transformation" Subtitle: "7 Simple Steps to Becoming an Outrageously Successful NEW YOU" The author is Peter J Green. The target audience are Men and women who are unhappy with their lot or are unhappy with who they have become. Want a better income, better job, better friends, better life. Probably aged between 30 – 55 ( but not exclusively), and are prepared to invest some time fixing it. The book explains that we all have huge untapped potential to change inside us and takes them through a process to acheive their transformation using me as their coach from the book. The cover needs to be fresh and vibrant, exciting, perhaps indicating change for the better. Not too cheesy but a bit stylish. Must catch the eye, maybe generate some curiosity. Colours not too weak but not all primary. I think there should possibly be "human" there somwhere, not sure if thats full body or just face. It needs to convey this is the answer to their problems, a new start, a new you. Must not be too cluttered as needs to still look good as thumbnail. There must be a prominent starburst or similar on the front that says "5 FREE BONUSES at www.nowtransform.com There should be a box on the back for ISBN (see spec) There should also be my picture on the back, (uploaded) (I can supply a larger pic if you want to make your own crop from it) There should also be around 3 or 4 testimonials on the back, these can be dummy text for the moment, the text will be supplied later. The price should appear as £16.99 and the words "First Printing" should also appear on the back.
It is a soft cover book, size 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" to meet the specification required by Creatspace, see uploaded file. or check out their website. I expect it to be between 90 - 100 pages, final count not ready yet. I think it needs to be at least 300dpi
