I need a book cover design for the 2nd edition of a book titled, "BIFF: Quick Responses to High-Conflict People, Their Personal Attacks, Hostile Email and Social Media Meltdowns. I want it to look nothing like the 1st edition.
This is a book about communicating with hostile people who attack via email, social media, letters, or in person. The author is a leading expert in dealing with high-conflict personalities (the most difficult people).
This is a book sold in bookstore Business section and Family/Relationships sections.
Back cover text that may help you: "We live in an age of rapid change and instant communication. We also live in a Culture of Blame and Disrespect.
