Check out Remi Gardanne's Book cover contest…
In the process to publish a self-help book on mate seeking, I'll need a professional good looking book cover.
What's your vision?
I'm releasing a book titled "The Marriage Equation: A Frenchman Reveals the Secret to Lasting Love". Author name: Remi Gardanne The cover (including the back and spine) needs to be simple and bold - something that will pop in Amazon's Kindle store as a thumbnail and on the bookshelf. The book is 6 x 9”.The spine will be about .48" Try not to use the color pink. Beyond that, it's pretty free on colors just as long as it fits the description above. Preferably with a couple as an graphic or image. Anything that makes the cover young, fresh and romantic drawing on the French side. The book is a guide to finding The One and live happily ever after. It's about knowing who you are, what you like and dislike, understanding the value of life standards, making your couple work no matter what. In short, laying the foundation to a lasting relationship that only grows richer with time. * * * THE IMAGERY SHOULD: - Make the viewer feel like they have found and live with their soul mate—to really believe that they also can find and keep The One. - Provide a pleasant and welcoming feel. - Give a professional look as well to give the author credibility in the mind of the viewer. - Evoke potential book buyers the following 3 words: FRANCE + MARRIAGE + EQUATION. If pictures are used it might be best to not see people’s faces clearly, so that readers don’t look and say, “That man or woman is nothing like me so this book isn't for me” or “That man or woman doesn't look my Mr. or Mrs. Right.” * * * THINK OUT OF THE BOX SO THAT YOUR DESIGN IS NOT CLICHE BUT REALLY DIFFERENT FROM OTHER BOOKS ON DATING AND MATE SEEKING. You can suggest pictures, words only, flowers, coffee, relax atmosphere from everyday's life... * * * TARGET AUDIENCE: US American singles and US American soon-to-be brides and grooms. Age range: +/- 22-35 * * * FONT I LIKE: Sans Serif "Heiti TC" —available on MS Word, Mac version 2008. It is the closest I could find to the font used on the book cover of The Charisma Myth —by Olivia Fox Cabane. http://www.amazon.com/The-Charisma-Myth-Personal-Magnetism/dp/1591845947 I'd rather have the title (bold) and subtitle (not bold) in lower case with first letter capitalized, like this: "The Marriage Equation: A Frenchman Reveals The Secret to Lasting Love" I am open to any other font as long as it feels modern and young at the same time. * * * * * * This is a GUARANTEED contest! * * * * * * Note that on the back cover there will a photo or the author and most likely be ISBN on bottom. * * * AN IDEA FOR THE BACK COVER: If love had its equation, what about “YOU + ME = OUI*”? More than math, The Marriage Equation reveals the love of attraction to help you find The One. This book also gives every soon-to-be bride and groom the tools to live together ‘happily ever after.’ In this relationship guide, you will learn: - What you need to know about yourself to find and keep the love you deserve - How to date in a natural way—without using gimmicks - How to evaluate your long-term compatibility - Practical ways to give and receive love before and during marriage - And much more! Filled with lively anecdotes, refreshing exercises, and timeless insights, The Marriage Equation is a book you must read if you’re in search for love and want to make it last. * It means ‘Yes’ in French—same pronunciation as ‘We’. REMI GARDANNE is a relationship coach, bootcamp instructor, and public speaker helping men and women find themselves to find The One and lay the foundation to a happy marriage. Remi and his wife Sophie have been married for over twenty years and live in Southern California with their two sons.
