I am looking to have a high quality book cover designed for my new book that is in progress. The book is essentially a book ABOUT writing a book. It teaches everything I know about book writing and that I teach to authors who want to write and publish or get published - so it's heavily writing oriented.
The details are as follows:
TITLE: The Book Within You
SUBTITLE: The Aspiring Authors Guide to Getting the Book Within You, Out
AUTHOR NAME: Emily Gowor
Please locate the authors name down the bottom of the front cover and on the spine with the title of course.
IMAGERY: I have attached a photo of me for the front cover and the back cover Authors photo. The authors photo is the headshot, the one for the front is the more full body shot where you can see my arms. I have attached a light very rough sketch for how it may look in terms of laying out design elements. You can flip the image 180 degrees (reverse it, if that makes sense) although I see myself on the right hand side of the book, but I'm open to and highly welcome your input and creativity on creating an amazing cover.
Please flip the Author Image (the headshot on the back) left-right i.e. so I'm facing the other way.
Primary colours to use: White (for the cover background I think), Red (for text) and black for font also.
Colours NOT to use: Pink, purple, army green, orange, blue, too much brown
The cover for the book will be 6 x 9 inches. Please aim for at least a 1 cm spine width as this will be adjusted later on.
Leave a space for the barcode and ISBN number for now on the bottom right hand corner of the back cover.
Please insert 2 paragraphs of dummy text for the Blurb.
I would expect the title 'The Book Within You' to be the top feature on the back cover i.e. to be repeated.
Please include the Gowor International Publishing logo (as attached) as well - on the back cover near the barcode and on the bottom of the spine as it normally is on most books.
This cover should feel and look:
And all design elements should fit together smoothly rather than look like a random set of elements put together in paint :)
