Title: Pardon My French Sub-Title: How a Grumpy American Fell in Love with France By: Allen Johnson Back Logline: Misadventures of an American Who Stumbles Into Love With the French Size cover: 6" x 9" Front and back Flap: 3.5" Spine = .8" Allow .125" bleed all around Allow: .25" cover/flap Allow: .125" front & back cover/spine (enlarge image front cover) Description: To make a friend is a joy. To make a friend in another country is a wonderment—a small miracle. Pardon My French follows the lives of an American couple who have embraced a daunting mission: Not to be spectators in France, but to be absorbed by France. Amidst the minefields of language faux pas, the perplexities of French gestures, the exquisite and often exotic cuisine, and the splendor of Christmas on the Mediterranean—see what it is like for an occasionally grumpy American to be adopted into a new family. Witness the hugging, the teasing, and the laughter that follows, when nothing on earth could be more perfect. Experience what it is like to fall in love with the French. Follow the adventures of the author as he pits his rather staid and conventional driving skills against the French racing car speed demons of Languedoc. Step into his sneakers as he tests his basketball prowess against the young French bucks adorned with backward ball caps and over-the-knee Chicago Bulls game shorts. Watch how he frolics in the Mediterranean Sea for the first time with a French topless companion. Marvel as he sits in with a world-class French jazz band. Observe him overcome his shyness in talking to the beautiful nude model from his painting class in the studio atop the village police station. Envision how he learns to dance the tango with his head upright, his chest expanded, and his strides befitting a newly adorned French god – one with with sensuality on his mind. Author Bio (back flap): Allen Johnson holds an MA from the University of Washington in communication and a PhD from Washington State University in psychology. He is an international keynote speaker and consultant. His platform style tends to be humorous and dramatic. He served for several years as a contract presenter for Franklin Covey. Johnson is also a jazz instrumentalist, singer, entertainer, and actor. Notes: In the end, I will need a psd of the front cover with all fonts, a copy of the spine with all fonts, a copy of the flaps with all fonts and a copy of the back cover (no text except for back logline). All these separate elements are needed to complete the InDesign final files and allow for adjustments later please. However, if the front image wraps around to the back, that is fine, it can be one image (one psd) for the front, spine and back (not flaps).
