San Andreas Island
Angela Costello is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, and has been working with individuals, couples and families helping them find happiness and balance in their lives since 1999. She enjoys writing and running as her natural highs. She lives in Los Angeles, where she was born and raised. Visit her and say hello at www.LAMindSpa.com.
When was the last time you felt pure raw pleasure? I am not talking about the high you get from drugs or alcohol. I am talking about the kind of tantalizing heat that comes from being around someone else who makes your heart flutter and your skin tingle. The kind that makes you take risks in your life that you never considered before. Jelina has always done everything by the book. From the outside, her life looks like a perfect fantasy: she married the popular guy, bought a beach house in Santa Monica, and has a child. But now, at 35 years old, her fantasy is crashing, her childhood haunts her, and she’s stuck in a miserable marriage she didn’t sign up for. Until she meets Natalia, an Italian breath of fresh air, who sparks raw vulnerability in her for the first time since before she was married. Jelina is faced with the most difficult decision of her life. Does she give her husband one last shot and try to repair their marriage, or does she risk everything and follow the tempting spark who ignites her?

And then… they selected a winner!
I was about to go with a different designer, and then at the last minute Rina’s design came in, and it just took my breath away. I ran a poll amongst my friends for my top three designs (from different designers) and I’m not even exaggerating when I say that 100% of my friends’ votes went to Rina’s design! It was intriguing and mysterious, but bold at the same time. In regards to the editing and technicalities, Rina made a very strong effort to provide the files I needed. The one suggestion I would make (and I’m not sure if this applies to working with any designer in general), but it would be to make sure that you have Photoshop installed on your own computer, or that you know someone who does. Rina sent over files, but although I tried to explain it clearly, Rina wasn’t sending them in the way I needed them (the front cover, spine and back cover all on one single file). I had to have a lot of help from a friend of mine who is familiar with Photoshop to help me get the specific dimensions adjusted that I needed in order to submit it to kdp (Amazon/CreateSpace), along with editing the back cover blurb and changing font size.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
