Master Your Genre
Fiction Author putting out first non-fiction book - a guide to mastering genre.

It outlines ways to improve their own books to better match the genre expectation, and then sell more books.
Other independently published (self-published) authors. Non-fiction readers interested in marketing.
I want a cover that will look like, and stand out from, other covers on these category pages: https://www.amazon.com/Best-Sellers-Kindle-Store-Business-Writing-Skills/zgbs/digital-text/154998011 https://www.amazon.com/Best-Sellers-Kindle-Store-Genre-Fiction-Writing-Reference/zgbs/digital-text/158272011 It should be a very big blocky title, big subtitle and tagline that could be readable at thumbnail size. It should be bright clear colors that really pop. The concept is sales growth and genre, so here's one idea: - An illustrated rocket taking off, and the flames underneath it are many bright and colorful genre symbols like these - https://st2.depositphotos.com/1778941/8581/v/600/depositphotos_85813066-stock-illustration-movie-genre-elements.jpg - Alternate idea is no rocket, just genre symbols around the title, maybe an illustrated book in the middle
