I need a book and ebook cover for Amazon Print on Demand and Kindle stores (please do follow Amazon's requirements attached).
Book Title: The Year I Became a Nomad
Subtitle: A journey through Asia on a quest for freedom, love and happiness (below title and in much smaller size)
Author: Carlos Peñalba (should go at bottom of cover; small size)
Book Trim: 8.5x5.5 inches, and 355 pages (spine approximately 0.8875, but check Amazon requirements).
The book is a Travel Memoir of my 18 months traveling through Asia after I left my job in New York City. The cover should have a modern and fresh feel but also a very professional look. Title must be shown clearly because the book will be sold only online. So, it's a must that it's easy to read on Amazon on thumbnail format. Subtitle and Author name not very prominent; it should not distract visually from title.
Emotions/concepts to communicate: adventure, life change, Asia, travel, zen, happiness (read again target audience in Background Information)
Typography must be clean; nothing too baroque or classic. It must transmit modernity.
Front Cover: I prefer a creative and original illustration because many travel memoirs have photos already. But because I'm a photographer I'm sending you 3 of my images so you can explore a possible cover with any of them.
Back Cover: I'm providing some pictures of my trip to be included on the back cover (3-5 together in small size; I'm providing 5 images); let's play with it and see how it looks but it's not a must-have at all. Also I'm giving you the book blurb or text to go on the back and the ISBN barcode. Please also include my two websites addresses.
