I need actionable feedback from you about whether or not the title of the book and the book cover as well as the sales copy is any good. Maybe the title stinks and you will be able to come up with a better one that is more catchy or makes more sense after you have read the book in full? Maybe you will take one look at the cover and think it is horrible or doesn't make sense? If so, what type of color concept would you recommend instead? I will need some very detailed feedback and creative ideas so that I can give them to my cover designer. 3....
