What's your vision?
TITLE: Henry Wallace and the Sleeping Prophet SUBTITLE: A SERIAL CONSPIRACY (this phrase is probably less than a subtitle and can (should) be small in comparison to both title and author's names. AUTHORS: Doug Moore with Chris Moore Doug Moore's name should appear in a larger font than Chris Moore's. (use your judgement as to point size) The book is set in the 1940s and is a historical rewrite. It deals with a conspiracy to kill the alternate President of the United States Henry Wallace but there is much more so please view the website. The website has everything you need. I would like real pictures of the real historical figures on the cover. It has to look super clean and professional. There is conspiracy, and history and mysticism in the book. As well as the A-bomb (the manhattan project), WWII, secret societies, the early CIA, FDR, STALIN, communists, nazis. There is a lot to sink you teeth into and a lot to overwhelm and sink a cover with. I don't mention these thing because they all need to be there. THEY DO NOT. But something that suggests this nest of topics is what I'm after. The book should look like it belongs on this website. It shouldn't look exactly like it's part of the site, but it can't look out of place. http://www.serialconspiracy.com/ The website is where to go for all information regarding the book. There you can find a synopsis of the book as well as a sample chapter and many pictures of the historical characters. The site will also expand as I am now working on it. All images have to be in the PUBLIC DOMAIN in such a way that they can be used for commercial purposes. Or they may have a CC0 license. Or whatever else may enable these pictures to be used by me on a cover for commercial purposes. http://www.serialconspiracy.com/ I need a high quality book cover, front, back and spine. The cover will be 6x9 and will be uploaded to createspace: here are createspace's guidelines: AS OF NOW THE BOOK IS 396 PAGES long. I do not know how large the SPINE will need to be. IT's LIKELY YOU WILL HAVE TO ALTER SPINE ONCE BOOK IS FINALIZED WITH CREATE SPACE! How to Create a Cover PDF for your Book Calculate the spine width of your book The spine width is based on the number of pages in your book: For black and white-interior books: White paper: multiply page count by 0.002252 Cream paper: multiply page count by 0.0025 Example of spine width calculation for a 60-page black and white book printed on white paper: 60 x 0.002252 = 0.135" For color-interior books: Multiply page count by 0.002347 Example of spine width calculation for a 60-page color book: 60 x 0.002347 = 0.141" Set up your document Your cover must be a single PDF that includes the back cover, spine, and front cover as one image. You can submit your cover on any size page as long as the printable area is: Measured exactly to your book's trim size, spine width, and .125" bleed Centered horizontally and vertically Minimum Cover Width: Bleed + Back Cover Trim Size + Spine Width + Front Cover Trim Size + Bleed Example calculation at 6" x 9" cover with 60 B&W pages on white paper: 0.125" + 6" + 0.135" + 6" + .125" = 12.385" Minimum Cover Height: Bleed + Book Height Trim Size + Bleed Example calculation: 6" x 9": 0.125" + 9" + .125" = 9.25"
