I wrote and completed a book, and am seeking the perfect bookcover. My book is titled " MY DAD DOESN'T KNOW JACK!! " It's in the self-help genre. I originally started this book 5 years ago, written for my 3 sons. It is straight from the heart advice about life--everything I've learned at the age of 46 that I wish I'd known when I was 20. The book is a compilation of 40+ short chapters. Advice topics include money and career, getting ahead, family, life and death, miscellaneous. There are other self help books out there, but I consider these warm and fuzzy. Mine is directed with sincerity, but its more blunt--not nearly as politically correct or sugar coated. I talk about death, and some of the every day difficulties we all encounter as young people, and the mistakes we all make. Many chapters are uplifting and inspirational, others are not. Such is life. There are two primary audiences—the statistical age group of 18 to 25, approximately 30 million readers--as well as parents of children entering adulthood. The book will appeal to 2 generations of readers--anyone 18 to 50--assuming the elder have teenagers.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I want a bookcover that pops. It doesn't have to be 3 dimensional with moving parts--I just want something effective- something people will remember. One of my initial thoughts for a cover was a silhoutte of a Father with 3 sons, maybe fishing/camping or doing something together. Something like that might work, but I might be reducing my audience by 50% to just males with that cover. The book material is relevant to young males and females, and not just in the U.S.A. So big picture I'm looking for something more universally appealing, even cross cultural. I'm open to anything--but the cover has to be effective, that it will be remembered.
The above are 5 sample chapters, plus the cover.
