We are releasing a book titled “A Common Man & The Ghost”.
The cover (including the back and spine) needs to be simple and bold - something that will pop in Amazon’s Kindle store as thumbnail and on the bookshelf. The book is 5.5 x 8.5. The spine will be about .72”
The book is a conversation between a ghost and a common man. The ghost gives great knowledge to common man to make him wise and successful. The conversation is about some bitter truth and hard facts of life whose knowledge makes one a powerful self , free from all failure, confusions and restlessness.
The ghost is wise, knowledgeable, serene and very powerful. Ghost is not so scary, bad looking or horrible. There should be an air of divinity and secrecy in the concept. Words should appear more powerful and bolder than graphics and background.
The imagery should make the viewer feel like they are overcoming the current status quo by reading the book. People should feel that by reading the book, they will be rising above the present plane of status, above system, above everything to the true success.
Its important that the book “pops off the shelf” and catches the eye. The most important part of the design for us will be “does it sell”, not “does it look pretty”. So it is very important that it catches the eye, is very polished and very engaging and interesting while it depicts the idea of the story.
Title formatting should be like best selling books on amazon and sample book covers are given.
The Contest is gauranteed.
