LSDDESIGN is very intuitive and responsive to the design needs and taste of the customer. It was a pleasure working with LSDdesign again for this project. Thank you for a clean and distinctive design for my book cover.

Always a pleasure to work with!! Pure excellence!
Ana was, once again, very helpful and resourceful. She communicated with me throughout the entire process and explained aspects of the design process that were unfamiliar to me as a new author. She delivered the highest quality work I could have hoped for, and made adjustments exactly as requested. I highly recommend her as a designer!
Easy to work with. Beautiful covers.

Life Coach, Author and Speaker. I work with clients to be all they area called to be.
Desired audience for this project is anyone (probably more women) who are seeking to be set free from the past and walk more intimately with the Lord. They no longer want to walk through life tossed every which way because of the circumstances they are walking through. They may not understand what is keeping them held back in the same patterns that only leave them defeated. They are looking for answers that help them walk in peace and joy.
Here is a confidential description of my book:
If emotions are ruling a person's life, past wounds are shaping the way they see God, and storms of life are threatening someone's peace then it's time to turn those tragedies into triumphs.
One of the most beautiful mysteries of the Christian faith is that of Christ and His Bride. Although the Bible tells this story, we are also designed to live this story, playing a starring main role in this divine drama.
Through my journey of healing from my painful past , the reader will receive strength to find Jesus' redeeming love for their future.
In these pages, they will experience the intimacy of the Bridal Chamber.
I open my heart and share some of my most personal heartaches in the hope that the readers will realize the love of the One who has given it all for them. The keys revealed in this book are truths that will replace the lies that we believe about our circumstances. You don't have to stay stuck any longer. You were called to step forward into victory.
This book includes excerpts from my journaling time at Jesus' feet along with application questions to encourage the reader as they walk through the healing of their past, into a freedom-filled future with Christ, their Bridegroom.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I need 1 nonfiction book cover designed.
On the front cover the Title will be in the middle towards the top in largest font :Bridal Redemption with the subtitle in smaller font beneath the title: Heal Your Past and Live Life Victoriously through the Intimacy of Christ's Love.
The author name will be towards bottom: Elle Stahlhut Roetzel
Underneath author name will be: Foreword by Kary Oberbrunner, Author of Elixer Project, Day Job to Dream Job, Your Secret Name
The front cover will continue over spine onto the back cover. I will need the title and a logo on the spine and also a logo, isbn and book details with my picture on the back cover.
This book will come in two versions: a paperback 5.5 x 8.5 inches (Createspace specs and Ingram Publishing specs) and hardcover case laminate 5.5 x 8.5 inches (Ingram Publishing specs). Their website have the correct dimensions, bleed, etc.
I want you to take creative liberty and give me your ideas about what you see. But I do have an idea about the direction I would like you to go. I would prefer not to use photos, but if you do I would prefer them to be free as I am not wanting to pay high royalties for the books that are sold.
I see a woman in tattered and dirty clothing on the left side of the book holding a lantern that is not burning with her head down. She is taking transition steps towards an image that is a woman in white flowing fabric (not a bridal gown) with her head up looking towards a light with her lantern fully lit. The transition steps are more impressions than solid figures. The woman could be entering a brightly lit tent by lifting a flap of the opening. The light is coming from within and illuminates through the tent to the outside (bridal chamber).
