Book cover type
I know what I want this 6" x 9" (15.24 x 22.86 cm) book cover to look and feel like. And I need your help to make it a reality. (glossy)
The book manuscript is ready for publication; however, CreateSpace book cover design team has failed to create the high-energy high-caliber book cover design required to capture reader's attention. I want this book to jump off the shelves. Ideally, I want this book cover to draw so much attention that an individual feels compelled to pick it up, thumb through its pages and buy it. Destined to be a bestseller is the book cover message this book must have. Keep in mind, this book cover is intentionally reflecting Donald Trump's ART OF THE DEAL book cover. However, this book cover needs to look and feel like a major upgrade. It needs to have personality, bling, and charm. The current book cover design uploaded is near, but not near enough to my vision for this book. I am asking you to stay close to the concept of reflecting a likeness of the ART OF THE DEAL cover, just much much better.
The two major issues you need to focus on are the title and the image of Trump.
1) Ideally, I want my title to look like embossed gold foil (without actually embossing the paper). And 2) copyright law prevents me from using the actual likeness of Trump as my book cover photo so, as you can see from my example, I wanted a very good likeness of Trump drawing/graphic. Over the image are the words "this could be you" again see the example provided. This is the goal of the image: readers to see themselves on the cover of this book. The purpose of the book is to inspire readers to achieve their own prosperity legacy in life and business.
As for the front and back cover verbiage, it will stay as written.
