dodgeladee got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Create an awesome, fun book cover about my weight loss journey
Check out dodgeladee's Book cover contest…
I am a speaker about weight loss and women's empowerment. My target audience is ages 35-55 women.
What's your vision?
I am releasing a book called "The Day My Shorts Fit My Dad: Confessions of a Former Fat Chick" Author Name: Suzanne Berkey The cover (including the back and the spine) needs to be fun and bold. It needs to pop on Amazon's Kindle store as a thumbnail and on the bookshelf. The book is 5x8. The spine will be about .6" I am open to all colors, but I would prefer colors that would attract women. I am a fan of blues, purples, pinks, some greens, maybe yellow, red, orange or NOT brown. I am open to images and simple graphics as well. I DO NOT want the background to be white at all. The book is the story of my 100 lb. weight loss journey that started with my shorts fitting my dad. It is about the mistakes and victories that I made along the way with tips to help the reader feel like it is possible to lose weight and big amounts of weight too. The reader really needs to feel that they can overcome being heavy. The imagery should make the viewer want to pick up the book. It needs to be eye catching and make the viewer become interested. It needs to be different from all the other books on the shelf. I would prefer that it not be all text. It needs to have a pleasant and fun feel to the book. It is not a serious tone at all. It needs to have a professional feel to the book, that gives the author credibility, but it is interesting and fun as well. I don't want it to be a "serious, woe-is-me diet book". It is important that the book pops off the shelf and catches the viewer's eye. The most important part of the design is "does it sell", not does it look pretty. It needs to be welcoming, engaging, and interesting. Book titles that I like (in no particular order) Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson Hello Life by Marcus Butler Adventures for Your Soul by Shannon Kaiser The Happiness of Pursuit by Chris Guillebeau I Deserve a Donut by Barb Raveling You can also look at my website: www.thewarriorwithinme.com
