Book Title: Connecting the Dots of a Disconnected Life
Author Name: Dvora Elisheva
Phrase: Foreword by Kary Oberbrunner, author of My Secret Name and The Elixer Project.
(correction of a typo - it is "Foreword" not "Foreward" as I had before)
Subtitle: NONE --- However, please place the words "A true story" somewhere on the cover.
I have just updated a CORRECTED back cover copy. I had typos in the one I uploaded before. I've marked in RED where all the changes are in the text. Thanks! Please pay attention to the text that is centered and bolded, as well as what is in quotations marks :)
The book cover will come in 3 versions, all of them 5.5x8.5 inches: 1) paperback according to Create Space specs (https://www.createspace.com/Help/Book/Artwork.do); 2 & 3) hardcover case laminate (no flaps) and paperback, both according to Ingram publishing specs (http://www.ingramspark.com/download…-guide.pdf).
Page Numbers: Guess-estimate is BETWEEND 225-275 pages ('m guessing ~230), pending final edits (in process) I will probably only know better by the time someone is picked as the finalist.
I would like you to have creative freedom with the design. I prefer original art work.
I would like the cover to be a comprehensive whole, from the back to the front, that somehow gives a sense of wholeness despite visual disconnection.
While my book is non-fiction, I don't envision a standard non-fiction cover. I am looking for something that is NOT the usual, that would stand out if looked at digitally on Amazon, or physically on a book display...
The spine and back covers will have the Author Academy Elite logo on it. The logo should rest horizontally on the spine, not vertically. I have provided you with the logos in black and white, depending on the color of the cover.
I also am attaching the ISBN/barcode graphics for hardcover and softcover.
PHOTOS of MYSELF
I have uploaded photos of myself for the back cover. Some of you are working on profiles/shadow images of a person, and you might want to refer to the profile shots that I uploaded. Other photos FYI, can be viewed or not.
Please feel free to ask me questions. Thanks!
