How daveandco started their book cover journey
Who are you known as?
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
I'm an author, news cameraman, and documentary producer based in Washington, DC and Oakland, CA. My new book, Master Minds, is a collection of interviews with 13 people who have achieved extraordinary things. The purpose of the book, aside from entertaining, is to illuminate a simple formula for mastering anything. My target readership are people who are either searching for their path in life or aspire to reach the highest levels of performance in their field.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I need designs for the book's cover, back cover, and spine
The 6th best-selling 'self-help' books of all time is called 'The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.' Master Minds demonstrates, through interviews with 13 leaders from 12 different fields, that people at the top share 5, not 7, common traits - or 'habits.' So the subtitle of Master Minds is a way of saying, in a playful way: "I can name that tune in 5 notes."
I thought it might be useful to include some of the interview subject's faces on the cover, so I've attached Jpgs of 10 of my subjects, as well as a sample of a possible graphic look. I also attached the back cover copy and the Amazon Createspace (my publisher) template for a 225-page book with the trim size 5.5"x8.5".
Use your own style to cross out the '7' and, as if you were using a sharpie, add the '5'. I am also open to better ideas.
I'll be happy to answer any questions and provide any information you might need to help you conceptualize the covers.
Thank you, Dave
