I`m looking for a design of a paperback cover (front, back and spine). Front cover will also be used for my kindle e-book version.
Title: “Como escrever um livro em 14 dias”
Subtitle: “Dicas para autores iniciantes”
Author: Edson Brandi
Paperback 6” x 9” (15.24 x 22.86 cm) , Black & White on White paper, 120 pages.
My Target Audience:
Anyone who has ever wanted to write a nonfiction book and do not know where to start. The book was written considering people who have little or no experience with self publishing industry.
What the book`s about:
This book aims to help novice authors with a method to make they able to write their nonfiction books within a period of 14 days.
Readers will find a number of practical tips to help them throughout the process, starting with the choice of subject for their book, how to organize the content, how to manage their time , how to review the document, etc.
The promise of the Book:
Read this book and learn how to write a nonfiction book about any subject in less than 14 days .
What I want the people to feel when they see this book cover:
The cover should make them feel safe and confident that it will be easy to write a book following my tips and advice.
I need a cover that grabs the attention of a reader and it must be noticeable at postage stamp size. The title must be read CLEARLY. Cover should look good in black and white when viewed in e-ink devices. Text stands out and the title must speaks for itself . I like clean designs, but you are free to create and propose something different.
To have a better idea about the cover styles that i like, you can take a look at covers that I choosed for my first two books at this urls:
I need a area to place 1-3 blurbs about the book content and a second área where I will add one author portrait and a small biography.
For author bio you can use following text "Edson Brandi é formado em Química pela Universidade Estadual de Campinas e trabalha em empresas do segmento de Internet desde 1996. Ao longo dos últimos anos passou pelos principais portais de Internet do Brasil, nos quais ocupou cargos de liderança nas áreas de Infra Estrutura e Acesso, Tecnologia da Informação e de Produtos e Serviços."
For author portrait, I have some pictures that you are free to choose from available at http://goo.gl/lwrcS0
I will provide de blurb texts about the book content to winner, since i still needing to write it.
Please leave a 2" by 1.2" space in the lower right-hand corner of the book's back cover for the ISBN barcode to be placed by the CreateSpace.
The winner will have to deliver:
Cover for printed paperback version as a PDF, that must be in compliance with CreateSpace Cover Specification - http://goo.gl/PrQ4u
Cover for E-book version as a JPG, that must be in compliance with Kindle Ebook Cover Specification - http://goo.gl/QYVRJ
