Karlin Sloan & Company
I'm a business book author who works with executives in corporations around the world. I've co-authored this new book with three other people, and we're aiming for a publisher but may need to self-publish. Comparison book covers on Amazon might be "Freakonomics", "Blink", or "Good to Great". We love simple, and need something that is eyecatching and memorable on a shelf.

The target market is a large population of people who work in modern corporations, primarily in the US. They are mostly managers who work long hours and find solace in expert advice or at least something that looks like it will help them get through a challenging time. They read many business books and buy them online either as ebooks or on Amazon.com.

You can put placeholders in for the barcode/ ISBN numbers and the publisher logo on the spine, and otherwise you have free reign to make it fabulous.
