What's your vision?
We need a book cover designed for a new e-book entitled, “The Virtual Assistant Solution.” It is by New York Times bestselling author, Michael Hyatt. The subtitle is “Dig Out from the Pile, Offload the Work You Hate, and Focus on What You Do Best.” Though the book will only be published as an e-book, we need a front cover, back cover, spine, and jacket flaps designed. This is so we can do a 3D rendering of the book to give it dimension. The book is about 15,000 words long. The copy should read as follows: The Virtual Assistant SolutionDig Out from the Pile, Offload the Work You Hate, and Focus on What You Do Best Michael HyattNew York Times Bestselling Author Foreword by Bryan Miles, eaHELP The book should be a height/width ratio of 1.6 or 1563 pixels wide, 2500 pixels tall, and 60 pixels deep (spine). I would like the design delivered as JPG files, along with the original source files, whether Adobe Illustrator, InDesign, or Photoshop. Members of the target audience are entrepreneurs and small business owners who feel overwhelmed with the amount of work they need to accomplish. They are frustrated, overwhelmed, and on the verge of burnout. This book is their lifeline, showing how they can get the practical, day-to-day help they need. Table of Contents 1. Why You Need a Virtual Assistant 2. Why a Virtual Assistant Beats a Traditional One 3. What a Virtual Assistant Can Do for You 4. Answering the Most Common Questions 5. Your First 90 Days with Your New Virtual Assistant 6. Tools for Staying in Sync with your Virtual Assistant We like books that include a strong visual metaphor that depicts the need or the solution. We want the book to look like it would fit on the New York Times bestsellers list. Books we like that fit this style include: Platform by Michael Hyatt Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman Boundaries by Henry Cloud and John Townsend The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell What the Dog Saw by Malcolm Gladwell How Children Succeed by Paul Tough The Noticer by Andy Andrews Die Empty by Todd Henry Michael Hyatt is the author of Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World (Thomas Nelson). It is a New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestseller. Recently, Forbes magazine named him one of the Top 50 Social Media Influencers of 2013. Michael started his career in the world of traditional media. He has served in in a variety of roles in the book publishing industry, most recently as the Chairman & CEO of Thomas Nelson Publishers, now a division of Harper Collins Publishers. Michael was an early adopter of new media (or social media). His blog, MichaelHyatt.com, is one of the most popular in the world, with more than 500,000 unique visitors per month. His podcast, “This Is Your Life,” is consistently in the top ten in the Business category on iTunes and downloaded by more than 350,000 people a month. He has almost 200,000 followers on Twitter.

It all began with a design brief.
