We are looking for the cover for our latest book, tentatively titled "Married with Luggage: What We Learned About Love from Traveling the World". This book will be our most personal yet and will tell the story of our journey from near divorce to living our dream of traveling the world. The book provides candid insights into our emotions and thoughts along the way and shares the steps we took to commit to each other and build a partnership together.
This is NOT a travel book, but is a book about one couple's relationship and what they learned while following their dream of exploring the world. That being said, it does have intense and funny travel stories within and is an entertaining book. We have a conversational and friendly style and want the cover to show that.
For the cover we are looking for creative ideas that will appeal to our ideal audience: married women, over 40, who are looking for more from their lives and relationships. They want to be inspired but not told what to do (i.e. not self-help). The cover should be simple and engage the reader both as a paperback but also as a thumbnail on Amazon. We'd like the design to spark imagination of what is possible with this read and pull them into the story. As well, if possible, to throw in the exotic nature of traveling the world full-time with the person you love.
For the final product we will need both the fully layered file and .jpg/.png. Would also love to work together on a print cover, but only after we have the full page count defined.
