I need an ebook cover for a book of cocktail recipes, all of which are 150 calories or less.
Book title: Skinny Jeans Cocktails
Subtitle: Libations for a Lean Lifestyle
Author: Elizabeth Dodwell
There are three keywords to keep in mind - fun, funky and sexy. And if you can incorporate all three in a design, you're genius!
I have three vague ideas of how this might look, though I am totally open to your own conceptual brilliance and will give feedback daily (or more often) and will answer any questions promptly. That said, here are my thoughts:
1. Picture a sidewalk cafe, a table with a cocktail on it and a woman in skinny jeans and high heels with her feet on the table. Now zoom in to a vignette of the lower legs next to the cocktail on the table, eliminate the background and there you have it. I think I'd like color, too. Maybe red jeans, an orange cocktail.......???
2. A section of the body, waist to knees, with an arm hanging down and the hand holding a drink.
3. Legs from the hips down as if someone were lying down; one knee bent up, the foot flat on the ground; a cocktail somewhere nearby.
I'd prefer not to have stock images though it's not an absolute No No. If you take a look at mixnsip.com, you'll see we went a little retro but, again, I'm open to either retro or something more modern.
Anything that views well in thumbnail will be a plus.
OK, now here's the thing. This is my first foray into the world of epublishing and I plan to paddle before I swim. So until I earn my water wings I will be publishing in pdf format. However, pretty soon I will be expanding to ePub and whatever Kindle uses and then offering hard copies. All of which means I don't know what format(s) I will ultimately need this in. Presumably jpg for the pdf but I'd also like to have a cover that can be formatted for other uses.
