parttimewebpreneur got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Design a powerful ebook front cover for a book about "How to write a book"
Check out parttimewebpreneur's Book cover contest…
Write Your Book on the Side
N/A - just designing the front cover at this point (no need for an author pic or an about the author section)
A book that teaches people how to write their first non-fiction book while they're working a full time job (i.e., on the side). It gives them a step by step plan to write and publish their book on Amazon Kindle.
Full time employees who are busy and have very little time to spend. People who are interested in writing non-fiction to advance their careers. People who have never written a book before (first time authors) and don't know much about the process. Age: 25+ Gender: All Location: Mainly US based, but applies to international locations as well (UK, Canada, Australia, etc.) Education: College degree or higher
Other color requirements
White background with Red and Black colors
Color scheme: Plain white background, with Red & Black colors. Here are links to two of my books (I'd like a similar color scheme) http://amzn.to/1QQ6VYF http://amzn.to/1MiyTdD I'd like the main title of the book (Write Your Book on the Side) to be readable at 90 pixels width (when the cover is resized), so please make sure the font is big enough. The dimensions should be based on the Amazon Kindle recommended published guidelines (but I'll also ask you to provide another version of the files with the standard ebook proportions as well - which will require a slight modification). I like strong professional fonts and a clean design. Here are a couple of designs that I really like. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00QOBM93U/ref=dp-kindle-redirect?_encoding=UTF8&btkr=1 https://www.amazon.com/Voices-Vintage-Contemporaries-Steven-Millhauser/dp/080416908X
What to avoid
I don't want a lot of stock imagery (and I'm ok if you don't include any). In either case, please don't use any photographs (just images)
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at $299.
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
