LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:
Book Title: Gratitude and Goals
Genre: Personal Development
Market: Men and Women 25-55 years old
I am looking to create a brand with this title and have other "Gratitude and Goals" titles, i.e. Gratitude and Goals for teens, Gratitude and Goals for Health and Fitness, etc. So, the overall look and feel has to be something that can easily be repeated and tweaked to fit the topic and audience. One example of this is the Chicken Soup For the Soul series by Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen, which is in the same genre of books as mine. But please, do not go for that look! That is what I am trying to avoid.
Please take the time and look at books in the Personal Development/Personal Growth, Self-Improvement, Self-Help categories on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, etc. Note that most of these books have the author's pictures on them, and are bland. This is NOT the look I am going for. I am not well known yet, so I do not want my pisture on the front. I would like my cover to be more stylish, please.
Preferences: Clean, contemporary, stylish, easy to read. Must appeal to both men and women alike. Must not be too feminine (NO: pinks, swirly lines) and not too masculine (No: dark green, burgundy, like a wood-paneled lawyer's office). You can also change the "and" in the title to an ampersand if it works and is not distracting.
These are the elements that MUST be on the cover:
Title: Gratitude and Goals
Sub-title: Create The Life You Would Love To Live
Author: Stacey Grewal
Foreword: Foreword by Paul J. Meyer
I am asking that you create the front cover only. I will need to be able to send my other designer a file that he can use and manipulate to co-ordinate with the back cover, my website, marketing materials, etc. I am adding the most recent cover he created for me so that you read what has to be on it. Although he did put a lot of effort into it, most of the feedback I got from people I showed it to was that it was "feminine." But please understand, I am looking for something different, so do not create something that resembles this cover.
If you have any questions, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your entries.
P.S I tried to upload the file for the book cover that has already been made for me, but I am not sure that it is working. If not, please email me directly and I will send it to you.
