What's your vision?
We have two designs in mind -- but only one will carry the book. I'm looking for a cover for an Ebook AND Print book. The front on of the Ebook will be the same as the front of the Print book. The Print will be going through CreateSpace. We're doing the 6X9 book size. 190 pages. On the Front will be the design, The author's name, Title, and 1 of 5 testimonials (you will see those to choose from at the very bottom). I need a separate file for the ebook and the print cover but they should be the exact same front cover. For the PRINT back, I'd like: * 2 or 3 testimonials (if you can fit them) * The book Blurb (see "Info for John Daly cover_ShortBIO" attached) * Author Bio (again, see "Info for John Daly cover_ShortBIO" attached) * Author picture ("John new head shot" attached) * The Troll River Publications logo ("TRPLogo" attached). * ISBN bar code. (ISBN: 978-1-939564-08-5) Title of Book: The Keys to Job Search Success Author Name: John J. Daly, Jr. The Key Class TESTIMONIALS: "I can't tell you how much I appreciate your skills at maintaining the interest and attention of these young people. Many people claim to have a way with teenagers but I seldom see someone as skilled as you are in your field". ~ Robert Foster, Juvenile Institutions Officer Senior "I would like to start by saying that I hope your etiquette teaching rubs off onto my soul... In return for your passionate willingness for us to succeed in the job world I will be successful". ~ Richard Palafox, Student “The students loved this class and learned very valuable lessons that will assist them in employment and life. John Daly made this experience fun, and we had great attendance due to his warm personality and real world experience. More students need this opportunity.” – Debra Teton, La Cuesta Continuation School Counselor “Thank you for teaching me how to keep up a conversation and walk into a place with confidence. I do plan on using these skills every day.” – Avery W., Santa Barbara, CA "Thank you for giving us good life-long lessons.” – Tina G., Santa Barbara, CA IDEAS ON FRONT COVER: I have two ideas both have a image. The "Key Class logo" picture we don't have the license for a book for. But, If you find a picture that is POD (print on demand) available that is similar to this one it ties in with the web site very well. HOWEVER, the author of the book had an image of keys in the lock of a door--with the door opening into a room where a ladder sits inside the room. See my artistic "talent" in the jpg "2013-04-24 16.00.46" - yep an original Van Gogh. And of course if you have a great idea--go for it!
Gang--I'm working with the author for this. We are on Pacific time (California). I'm respectful of your time, but please understand that I am on Pacific time. I will make neck breaking effort to get to your questions. I don't plan to sleep for the next 72 hours but I do tend to fall asleep at my computer so be patient. Also, approval is needed from the author so For everyone of you that I must cut--I bleed a little. Good luck!

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.
Trollriverpub collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected 2 winners!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
