How narellehudson started their book cover journey
Holding the Baby Dream
Narelle Hudson is a counsellor who lives in Brisbane, Australia with her husband. This is her fourth autobiographical book. She hopes to inspire readers to: question possibilities, not accept limits and be brave enough to dream, live, and love whole-heartedly.
The book is about my personal experiences with infertility and IVF. The heartbreak, the joy and the grief of wanting a baby and losing a baby. What else is possible when one dream is not realised.
Women experiencing infertility issues and hopefully their partners, friends and families. Women all over the world. Main age group would probably be women in their 20's, 30's and 40's.
Book cover type
What colors do you want to see in your design?
I am notcertain but I want something professional looking but also unique and not run of the mill. I would like blue tones and an abstract feminine design that signifes a difficult journey that ends in hope. I don't want it too loud but striking so someone would pick it up and want to read it. You may or may not want to incorporate the image of baby feet I have provided in other files. They are my babies footprints and I would like them somewhere if they suit the theme and are not corny. I would also like some sort of design featuring a river or peaceful body of water.
What to avoid
I don't want anything too loud or impersonal. I want something warm and inviting. I don't want it to be too business like without heart but still look professional. I would like clear fonts that are easy to read but not too boring.
