For inspiration, check out http://amzn.com/1936467224. I like the way the border was used. This book is intended primarily for golf fans. In the printed edition, it was often a gift, though eBooks are less suited for that purpose. Still, let's try and give it a gift-quality feel, please.
This is my fifth contest or so on here, so let me offer some suggestions that may help you win: 1. Get your designs up early. We will offer feedback to help you revise and come up with the design we are hoping to find. 2. Don't throw up too many versions of the same cover. They tend to diffuse rather than focus.
I have not blinded this contest, as I prefer the author be able to check in on your progress. If you would like this blinded, let me know and if I get several requests, I will comply.
Thank you very much! I look forward to your entries.
