I have written a memoir/inspirational book called Stop Drifting & Start Living:20 life lessons learned in China. Along with that I also wrote two companion journals (one on happiness and the other on goals). I want a fabulous cover for the book and then, taking the same cover with only slight color modifications (burgundy red and deep yellows/oranges, maybe) to use on the covers of the journals so they look like a set but distinctive. The are going to be sold together AND separate.
I want it to have a travel/cruise feel and maybe a world travel flare with VERY subtle asian influence in there. The colors I love are rich and deep contrasted with whites.
The words I want to describe the cover are Vibrant, confident, happy and grounded. I want it to FEEL alive but comforting. I like old world kind of stuff.
The book size will be 8x5. I want front and back to blend together.
I want the title to POP but be creative. I want when somebody walks by it they would display it because it's that pretty, unique and captures imagination. I don't like cartoony things.
