Maybe the title & subtitle: Fizz. Nothing is as it seems. A novel about a young womans quest to understand the universe (or maybe all of this is clear enough on the cover)
An animation telling the story (a bit like http://daniellevin.com/) but using .gif not Flash (you can show just the last frame in the design for now) :
o A young woman coming of age
o a burning curiosity
o an impossible dilemma
o lead to an epic quest
o to relive the history of physics.
o Fizz: The universe just got personal.
o e.g. Fizz is an amazing book New York Times

o Follow me on twitter http://twitter.com/goodies/buttons

Three key buttons:
o Buy Fizz button (or Buy book or just Buy) with the Amazon a on button (should be quite dominant but not in your face). Under it space for smaller links like Amazon UK, Barnes & Noble

o Community link to Facebook group (space for 2-3 extra small links in future)
Possibly a couple of paragraphs about the book - part of the text from the back of the book
Small space for 2-3 bullet points of news items

o Meet Zvi
o Book clubs
o Deleted scenes

Do you have additional info or links you'd like to share?
I have uploaded files for the cover (jpg and psd). Only the front has to show. Also a picture of the author with a green background.
One idea is to show the book wide open with front and back like http://www.clker.com/cliparts/1/b/d/6/12...
but the back can have different content than the real back. Not sure - just an idea.
