I am a Public Speaking Coach and my book provides people with practical knowledge to prepare and present a speech. It is aimed at studnets, business people - anyone who has to speak in public.
My book title is
From Preparation to Powerful Presentation Every Time
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
Book will be 5.5 x 8.5 size
I want a book cover that I can use for both a Kindle e book AND a print on demand version. I would like to include some colours from my branding (blue) and I want the cover to be fuss free. I have a Pinterest board with some book covers that I like and here is a list of what I don't like
Don't use the LOGO from my website I don't like the fonts.
No black backgrounds
No images of microphones, coporporate people speaking in front of audiences or a lecturn - those type of images have been done to death!
I like the idea of speech bubbles in various colours on the cover but I mainly want clear, modern, easy to read text rather than too many pictures.
I am open to the idea of having my photo on the cover but not 100% sure on that.
I have a website http://www.speakingsavvy.com.au where you will see the types of blue that I use I'd like to in corporate the blue with another colour maybe orange. Below are some of the covers I quite like but NOT yellow.
The book cover has to comply with Lightening source requirements as that will be my POD supplier.
