I loved every minute of working with Estella! She read my brief, was the only designer to give me what I asked for from the beginning. When it needed little changes here and there, she made them and did it with a sense of trying to give me my "vision." It's hard to find designers who will do that. She is one of the great ones!

The Way We Met - An Anthology of Short Stories
Patricia M Jackson
Patricia M Jackson started out life raised a country girl, growing up in a series of small Minnesotan towns. She writes fiction wrapped around the stories of real people. She draws inspiration for her novels from people she’s found in researching genealogy or people she’s known who lived inspired lives; people who deserve to be remembered forever. She weaves their stories with fiction within a romance because a good romance is a great read.
You’ll find Patricia M Jackson at home in the metro Minneapolis area where she lives with her husband and her geriatric dog, Charlie.
This is an anthology of short stories of several different couples. Each story is a first-person account of how they met and fell in love, followed by a brief glimpse into their life after they met.

What colors do you want to see in your design?
I'd like something very romantic-looking, almost wedding-esque. I sort of have a vision of a table in a honeymoon suite after the wedding, but I'm open to pretty much anything. Definitely a title font-face that fits the romance genre. If you could include a subtitle of: "An Anthology of Short Stories" that would be helpful.
What to avoid
Cartoons. Bright colors. Identifiable people (No faces. Body parts, shadows, silhouettes, yes. Faces, no.)
Cover of my current series. A designer did this for me. It's okay, but not my favorite.
