Nurture Her Dad! The Bonding Trick to Hack Pregnancy for First-Time Fathers - 9 Mindful Tips for Men to Master All 3 Trimesters Monthly Guide
Nova went into his wife’s first pregnancy blind – he thought all he needed to do was provide her with late-night pickles and ice cream and all would be good. Now that he’s been through a pregnancy, he better understands the different intricacies of what women go through and what they really want from their partners. He wants to help other men be prepared for this important journey into fatherhood.
Nurture Her Dad! is a guide to your partner’s pregnancy that emphasizes being in the moment every step of the way.
Male as it is targeted toward fathers (though a subset may be females with women partners who are pregnant). Ages 20-40. The average age is 28.
Book cover type
I was thinking about a style where you have an image or idea of a mother smiling with the baby inside of her (kind of like an X-ray) and you can see the baby shouting "Nurture Her Dad!" and the figure of the Dad comforting her. Basically something that shows the baby-to-be is trying to talk to the Dad. Use a mint green color or a honey orange. A color that pops out a bit. Use a clear, but very modern , simple, but good looking font. The mood should be more comical. Ebook and print dimensions should be 5.5 x 8.5. The cover overall shouldn't be doing too much, just enough to grab somebody and make them want to pick it up.
What to avoid
No cursive fonts or fonts that are hard to read. Nothing generic looking.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at $409.
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.

And then… they selected a winner!
This was my first design submission and I loved it from the beginning. If you see other reviews, you'll also see similiar comments. It was extremely easy to work with the designer and made fast changes like he could read your mind. If I have a series, I will come back straight to this designer to do my next book cover. Would highly recommend.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
