7 Highways of the Soul
Norman D. Levy
(NOTE: Please crop author picture to be more of a headshot. This is for the BACK of the Cover ONLY.) Norman D. Levy is an entrepreneur in the garment industry and an avid writer having been published in various publications and magazines. Norman’s greatest wish is to assist others as others have helped him. He is strong in his faith and hopes that all those who are struggling find their way back Home to Hashem.
This book is a guide for both parents and children (primarily aimed at those of the Jewish faith.) It is letters from the author to his children explaining the hardships that life can bring and the grace which follows when you don't lose faith. It is a book of inspiration. It is named 7 Highways of the Soul because the book highlights 7 different 'roads' we travel in life.
Jewish faith based/spiritual based people
Book cover type
Very basic cover, using ideally all neutrals or black and white. I don't have any images in mind and don't need any on the cover. Bold and blocked. No frills. No scripted fonts...very traditional. Bare bones. It is a Jewish faith based book so it should convey that this book is sacred and serious. Nothing hip and modern, but old-school look or a clean, unencumbered look. Trajan Pro is a nice font but open to other similar fonts that would suit the mood. The subtitle is a biblical quote, just FYI...so it is to be in " " This book will be uploaded on both KDP and IngramSpark. The book trim size is 5.5" wide and 8.5" tall and is 204 pages on white paper. Do not put publisher logo or author photo on the front cover - only for back cover
What to avoid
Scripts or fancy fonts, bright colours, busy images or fonts that make things look busy.
