    You can do some research at this stage, but without a name, it's gotta be pretty generic (which you shouldn't be aiming for).

    While you are researching, figure out the target audience your...

    A good start. I like the overall tone of the design.

    I'm a bit confused by how it folds too. I think the girl's face should show on the cover, rather than on the back panel. The front cover...

                Pretty sure that's the slug area. Usually at the bottom of the page....... yes it's not very interesting is it?

                  Thanks, now we can sound like perfessionals when trying to explain this to the Chinese!
