Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
I am an author and need a book cover design that will convey humor/women/positivity. I also want it to reflect my journal/diary format style of writing.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I would like a clean lined but bold background book cover (e.g. Lime green with bold writing and simple design)
My book is a blog type/journal of a woman who goes through a divorce and finds happiness. She is funny and affable.
Think Bridget Jones Diary...
I am Jill. My name is uncomplicated and transparent. It has only four letters that stand straight and proud, and I attempt to live by its manifesto every day. Of course, simple isn't always easy.
If you watch The Wizard of Oz ..in reverse….you have my life story.
For forty four years, I lived in the technicolor dream world of Oz.
The Yellow Brick Road was an easy path through a happy childhood . I went to Notre Dame for college and then to Virginia for law school.
I found my dream job and a husband in San Francisco. We married and lived in Germany, Budapest, Vienna, Hong Kong, India. In the sweet town of Summit, New Jersey. I birthed my three babes and then moved them to London so that they could experience a world beyond their white picket fence.
Ah...life was merry in the old land of Oz!! Of course, I had to tolerate a commanding wizard and a witch or two but, hey, there was also a lollipop guild and munchkins. I could handle it.
A cyclone then roared through my Oz. It was frightening, and I was in its vortex for way too long.
I am now on solid ground and the storm is over. The sky is blue again and I can see my rainbow.
I am not a licensed psychologist or a gifted healer. I do know that writing was my therapy during those Cyclone Years.
I am hoping that my musings give you a moment of living outside of your head.
