Contest Brief

I am working with a self published author who has written a self-help/life lessons book. Below these instructions is the blurb for the book cover. We prefer the artwork be created in indesign for final file handover.

I am attaching the proposed as a jpeg - one with the current back cover information and one without. The back cover information is attached as ""Book Blurb". I am looking for some creative options that don't look so much like a spiritual book. I would like to see some options that play on the name of the book Hammer Down, but am open to anything.

I am sending some preview images of what the author has sent. I am also sending his ranch brand 'h" as an indd file. This needs to be incorporated into the cover (you can see it on the front cover of current one). Please don't hesitate to send questions.

Hammer Down - Back Cover Blurb

If you want to change the world, you must first change your perspective.

When he was three years old, K.P. Haley’s first memory was witnessing the death of his grandfather. At age twelve, he watched in horror as his older brother was nearly killed by the family horse. And in his 40s, he helped pick up the pieces after one of the deadliest tornado outbreaks in history ripped his small Oklahoma town apart.

Through it all, K.P. Haley has kept one truth at the forefront of his mind: life is a precious and finite gift, and it would be a shame to waste a second of it.

In his debut book, K.P. Haley dives into the lessons and techniques he’s acquired from a life spent enduring hard work, be it on the family farm as a child or during his 30-year-long career at a Fortune 500 company. Among these, his “hammer down” method teaches readers how to maximize their time, take advantage of every opportunity, and thrive in the face of adversity.

Haley proves that by living life with discipline, gratitude, and courage, we all have the power to change the course of our lives forever. Whether you’re struggling to find your rhythm in life or looking to change your current trajectory, Hammer Down is an insightful must-read that takes a look at the power we can summon, as long as we’re willing to open our minds, revise our habits, and hammer down.
