HiretheWorld helping Published Authors’ Ebooks sell on Amazon

Stealing Home Book Cover

Stealing Home

We’re super lucky here at HiretheWorld to have the chance to work with so many great people working on great ideas; from innovative theatre to new ways of displaying information to clients. Not all of these projects bear fruit, but when they do succeed, we love celebrating them. So when we heard that Phil Lemmons had launched his ebook “Stealing Home: The Con’s Guide to Inheritance Theft” on Amazon.com, we were thrilled!

Back in the winter months, Phil contacted us about the possibility of getting a book cover done with us. He’s an expert in estate planning and inheritance law, and had already done the hard work of writing 121 pages worth of content. However, like many authors he isn’t a designer and wanted to make sure his book looked professional.

He ended up running a pro level Book Cover Contest with us for $1200. He received over 150 entries from designers around the world:

Runner Up

Runner Up - Emadz

Runner Up

Runner Up - Geisha

Runner Up

Runner Up - Les Graphistes

Eventually he decided on a winner from Storm as seen at the top of this post. Overall, a wonderful contest and a wonderful final result!

If you or anybody you know is looking for advice on inheritance planning, you should check out Phil’s book or his practice (thelegacylawyers.com).

If you’re thinking about getting your book cover designed, you should definitely check out our Book Cover Contest…Contest for your chance to win a free design contest.

Book Covers

Books need covers

Some of them were specific to a freelance relationship with a client but most could be applied just as easily to design contests holders here at HiretheWorld. One type of contest I think our community is going to start seeing more often is book cover contests, so I thought I’d write up a similar list of things designers need to keep in mind when working on a book cover.
