What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

I need a book cover (front and back) for a book on sales titiled "Sales Savvy: Self-Help for Small Business". The book will likely be 5" x 7.5" in size, but the design should be usable if the book is printed 5.5" x 8.5". The back cover should have room for some 'About the Author' material...

I will attach the Introduction/Conclusion to give you some insight into the important aspects of the book. I try to leverage current [national] emotions by pointng out that Sales are part of the fabric of free enterprise; an integral component of the American Dream. As a former US Marine, I'm particularly in tune with the values of freedom that Sales can bring anyone willing to work hard; freedom from poverty, from limitations. The book uses anecdotes to provide advice and instruction that can be used to improve sales, increase profits, build financial freedom.

I don't want anything too 'busy'. If not too corny, red/white/blue might work for a color scheme. But the idea is to Sales into our country's ethos -- that, in America, everyone is free to achieve prosperity. And that this book will help the reader learn how to sell. Not based on Ivy-league concepts or business school ideas, but based on the experiences of an average American who had nothing to start, learned about discipline, hard work and integrity in the Marines, and shares all that he has learned in this very 'readable' book.
