Finding joy when times are hard!
Book cover type
This book will sell to Faith based Christian women. The idea of snatching a brass ring on a carousel seems ideal. Hoping for a clean looking less cluttered cover in feminine colors. Although this is a Christian book, it's not a stodgy look at joy, so more whimsical would be the goal. The original title included the words "bottom of a deep grey bucket of suck" (for many reasons that title failed the beta test:) however an old-fashioned wooden bucket with a ladle dipping out clear water might be an idea, but please don't limit to that idea.
What to avoid
The stereotype of a Christian woman is the arms outstretched looking heavenward pose... not looking for that style.
It all began with a design brief.
