The subtitle is:
A Financial Guide for Today's Canadian Student
This book includes an overview of financial concepts that concern Canadian post secondary students.
We don't have any specific images in mind, other than our author picture (see attached) which should go on the back. The text for our author picture/bio and back cover is attached.
We would like the following promotional blurb quote to go on the front cover as well please:
"Failure to launch? Not if you read this book. It's full of good suggestions for young adults trying to get through college or university without being crushed by debt."
-Rob Carrick, Globe and Mail personal finance columnist and author of How Not to Move Back in With Your Parents
Some possible themes we would like to see incorporated into the overall designs are:
1) "Canadian" (maple leaf, Canada flag, beaver, loonie, map of Canada etc.)
2) Beer drinking
4) personal finance/money
So feel free to be creative within those guidelines and we'll direct your efforts more as we see some potential designs come in.
-Also, please remember to include our publishing name: (Young and Thrifty Publications) on the spine at the lower end with the attached apple logo.
