carrie x got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Carrie Cheadle's Mental Skills Training for Athletes needs a new book cover
Check out carrie x's Book cover contest…
I help teams, organizations, and individual athletes accomplish their athletic goals through Mental Skills Training. I work with athletes at every level, from recreational athletes to elite and professional athletes competing at national and international levels. I help athletes to perform more consistently, with more confidence, and enhance their enjoyment of training and competition through strengthening their mental game.
What's your vision?
I need a book cover designed for my soon to be published book. Title: On Top of Your Game Subtitle: Mental Skills to Maximize Your Athletic Performance Author: Carrie Cheadle Publisher: Feed the Athlete Press Book Size = 5.5” x 8.5” Spine width = .62” I am drawn to a clean, simple style that makes a strong visual impact/statement versus a more ornate style. For the artwork/images I prefer photos versus illustrations. I want the title of the book to stand out more than the artwork. I also want the author name on bottom to stand out, but in a smaller font than book title. I like a lighter colored background so the text and images stand out. I’m drawn to more contemporary, bold, and memorable designs. My writing style is professional, but also fun. I would like for this quote to be somewhere on the front cover: “Cheadle definitely has a winning book on her hands.” – Kurt Stockton The back cover will include text, my picture and a short bio, as well as two testimonials. I’ve included a file that has the back cover content as well as my photo and the publishers logo. I will also need a space for a barcode.
The book is geared towards athletes that want to improve their performances, but feel like they are the ones holding themselves back. This book is a resource and tool for these sorts of athletes, teaching them how to improve their physical performance and regain their lost confidence by overcoming their performance anxiety. As a longtime educator and expert, I provide worksheets and exercises from my own work with athletes using the tools and research from sport psychology to inspire and lead athletes to overcome their anxiety and get back to performing to their potential. You can consult my website www.carriecheadle.com to see the work that I do which is directly tied to the topic of the book. I am publishing through CreateSpace and here is a link that gives instructions on their book cover submission requirements including bleed, trim lines, etc. https://www.createspace.com/Products/Book/CoverPDF.jsp The book will be offered on Kindle as well so ideally I would like a design that will also look good as a thumbnail.
