The Community Book Project: A Celebration of Personal Heroes
USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Donna Kozik is the lead editor of The Community Book Project, a series of thought-of-the-day books that brings together contributor-submitted essays centered on a specific theme such as gratitude, pets and personal heroes.
The Community Book Project: Celebrating Our Personal Heroes began as a remembrance of Sept. 11, 2001 and a finished as a message of hope, inspiration and gratitude for the “hidden heroes” in our lives. In these pages, you’ll discover how these heroes lead us to strive for more and go beyond perceived limitations.
Women ages 40-65
This is for a Kindle ebook and I will upload previous covers for this project that I liked best. The gauges above are a good indicator -- I'd like it more casual than luxury, more quiet than loud, more feminine than masculine, more pop than grunge. I prefer graphics to photos, but it's just a preference. I light bright colors but this edition shouldn't be too bright or cartoony. I like a mix of script fonts and sans serif. I found serif fonts too "old" looking. The mood should be optimistic and happy though, again, not with being cartoony or overboard. If people are represented make sure they are a mix of races with none being dominant over another. I'd like to see what you have with purple hues to start as that was the color of the first edition of this book in 2011.
What to avoid
DO NOT go literal with "hero." No super hero capes and no military.
