Here's my introductory information for my books:
I’m the creator and primary author of the Practical Guides series of
how-to books. I help explain complicated things to people in a fun and
easy-to-understand way. I believe that life is a bowl of fruit loops
and that things don’t have to be so complicated, although I suppose
excessive techno-jargon keeps lots of well-intentioned lawyers in

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I currently have books called "Insanely Practical Guides." I want to
rebrand the book series to just "Practical Guides." Although this
project is for one book, "The Practical Guide to Gun Holsters for
Concealed Carry" I want to develop a standard "Practical Guides" look
that will be applied to the other books in the series at a later date.
So I am looking for a standard "Practical Guides" treatment that would
be the same on all my book titles, but I want a complete cover design
for "The Practical Guide to Gun Holsters for Concealed Carry."

I currently have a home made book cover that I am uploading here. It is branded "The Insanely Practical Guide to Gun Holsters" but I want to rebrand it with a new look to "The Practical Guide to Gun Holsters for Concealed Carry” where “Practical Guides” becomes a standard graphic element across all my books. Think of it like the “For Dummies” series and how all the books on different topics have similar look and feel.
