The book Fierce Authenticity: Show Up. Be Seen. Get Love. is a powerful book about how to get the love you have always dreamed of by taking a look at the blocks you hold to love's entry into your life. The blocks are usually the stories you learned in childhood that have shaped the person you are today. In this book I share some research, but mostly case studies and personal stories that support my idea that all of your adult relationships are based on the stories you developed about yourself while growing up. Book is more of an engaging narrative weaving together the stories, the ideas, and the research, and less of a step-by-step how-to.
Book is written primarily for heterosexual women, mid-20s to mid-40s mostly, who live in the US (or other western countries) and are overachievers and super-doers. Book is meant to relate with women who are single or married. These women want to be in touch with their femininity, but they are so in their masculine due to the nature of their doing and achieving. Book cover design needs to delicately balance the both and draw her in.
Book cover type
Looking for clean, simple, minimal design that attracts women without being "too feminine" that also makes a big impact. Readers are women who want to be in touch with their femininity, but they are so in their masculine due to the nature of their doing and achieving. Book cover design needs to delicately balance the both and draw her in. I have a Pinterest Inspiration board over at: https://www.pinterest.com/ShiraniMPathak/book-cover-inspirations/ Included in that inspiration board is my original mock-up of my initial vision.
What to avoid
Large background images. Complicated images. Anything "too feminine" or "too masculine."
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at $299.
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
