Here's the deal. Imagine yourself looking at this book through the window of a book store. You'll first see "FIRE ME I BEG YOU" in bold.
The rest of the book should MAKE YOU desperately to want to buy this book. It should relate with people who are miserable with their careers. It HELPS people take risks with their careers
I am looking for a Simple, Modern book cover. This is the most important. It should look like a major author in 2018 published it.
I included samples of what I like in the attached files.
FIRE ME I BEG YOU should be bold and stick out. (It's trademarked as well). I want that to be the main centerpiece of the book.
I would like a MODERN stock image that can be in the middle of the book cover.
Subtitle: Quit Your Miserable Job, Double Your Income and Become the Happiest You've Ever Been.
I would LOVE for it to have some subtle sybolism in it (without using silhouttes or old school clip art).
My name doesn't have to be that big.
Overall, I'm open to cover ideas, simple and crazy.
STOCK IMAGES GUIDELINES
Please don't use pictures of people in the cover. I know it's tempting, but don't do
The key for stock images is to show that the person is quitting as opposed to getting fired. Everyone who is reading my book wants to quit. So the symbolism should be "screw this place. I'm out". Anything that shows that is really powerful.
So, the first impression of the book should be of someone escaping the crowd (without using people or silhouttes)
(CRAZY IDEAS) - Use at your own risk. If you can pull it off without making the cover too complicated.
Reverse heaven and hell. The Hell is getting paid good money for a job you don't want to do. You want to jump and at the bottom are angels saving you.
You're on the ledge of jumping on a high dive but you can't get yourself to do it. (again, no silhouttes). subtle symbolism.
Most importantly. This is a SERIOUS, MODERN BOOK.
This is actually version 2 of the book. (1st version is here: http://firemeibegyou.com/the-book/)
The first version is good, but looking for something more like attached.
