About Your Company
Target audience is Christian businessmen/women. The "industry" is a mix of BOTH religion and business.
The title is: "Making Your Business God's Business".
The subtitle is: "Having a front row seat to watch God use your business to impact the world".
The author is: Jeff Buckman, the CEO of Buckman's, Inc (https://www.buckmansinc.com/).
The book is a mixture of teaching business principles and encouraging businesspeople to donate more to missionary work and humanitarian causes.
From the introduction, Buckman writes: "I am writing a book in hopes that other Christian businesspeople will learn something from what I have learned over the past forty-five years (and counting)! By doing this, they may be able to “fast track” to being used of the Lord in a greater way, and will not have to spend decades learning the way I did. Perhaps others can see how they can use their businesses for the Lord and His work locally and around the world. I hope that others will catch the vision that their businesses are part of God’s plan to make an eternal difference!
I want others to see that they can go to the Lord for direction about how to run their businesses. In my experience, God blesses that which is yielded to Him, and He has directed me in business decisions. I want others to see, also, that they can have both a ministry and a business, and how rewarding both can be! People living and serving in this way will be blessed far beyond their wildest dreams! They will discover new relationships and see friendships formed that last not only for a lifetime, but for eternity. It truly has been an awesome life that I want others to experience."
The trim size of the book is 5.5" x 8.5" (13.97 x 21.59 cm) (will be published on kdp.amazon.com).
Colors to Explore
The author likes the "front row seat" imagery from the subtitle, but he is open to other ideas that match the book's description. There is no specific logo or other material. He likes bold lettering although I realize the title/subtitle are quite long.

Crowdspring requires answers to several questions. (feminine or masculine, for example). Don't pay too much attention to those. It is not always one or the other. I asked the author to go to a bookstore and send me some book covers / color schemes he likes. I have attached the 4 he sent below. I know the difference here is that these 4 are all novels, and his book is non-fiction, but at least you have them, to get an idea of his preferences.
