The book is paperback 5.5 x 8.5. The page count is not final. The editor won't be done for another 3 to 4 weeks. However, the book is in the range of 144-160 pages. The back cover will have the usual blurbs, website details, ISBN and barcode. None of the details are available. Will provide them to the winning designer.
I've attached an excerpt from the book including a mock-up of the title pages. I expect those pages will change based on what is done on the cover. They are just placeholders for now.
I'm ok with bold color. There will be 3 or 4 more titles in the series. Your submissions should indicate how you would handle the series although the titles are not available.
The artwork needs to be ready to submit to the publisher. In this case it is Amazon's CreateSpace, https://www.createspace.com/Products/Book/. See the detail on the "Booksizes and Artwork" tab. It will be a PDF with fonts embedded.
I also need a jpeg of the cover for my website.
