A Plan for Life is a self-help book that is an aggregation of the best guidance and newest resources, both online and offline, designed to help people manage the seven key areas of their life: Wealth, Health, Career, Education, Love, Place...and You.
This book will be published as both a print book and as an ebook on the popular ebook formats (e.g. Kindle, iBooks). I'll need files that can be uploaded to Kindle and Createspace and reformatted, if necessary, for Nook, Kobo, iBooks, Smashwords, etc.
The cover designs I gravitate toward are simple and utilizes bold typefaces. Some book cover examples you can see online are Decisive by Chip and Dan Heath, Good to Great by Jim Collins, Conscious Capitalism by John Mackey, Extreme Productivity by Robert Pozen, Blink by Malcom Gladwell, No Excuses by Brian Tracy, and Physics for the Rest of Us by Roger Jones. I like solid (or near solid) backgrounds with all-type treatments or with the use of a graphic design visual element that relates to the book's content.
HOWEVER, I don't want to stifle anyone's creativity. If you have a killer design that helps make this book a best-seller...I want to see it.
The target audience for the book is primarily men and women in the 18 - 35 age range, although the advice is helpful to anyone at any age.
