Living on Three Spoons
Susan Torres is an author and a public school teacher, and was inspired to write her memoir after an interview by The New York Times, "Single Mother, Creator of Miracles."
Living on Three Spoons is about a single mom, me, who raised four kids right, or almost right, despite her attempts at two marriages (really three but the last one not included in the book because this was after I wrote the book, lol) gone wrong due to her lack of relationship skills, compliments of an inherited dysfunctional background (shocker). No worries the kids are okay.
Women who struggle to leave self-destructive, abusive relationships, people who like to read memoirs, and maybe people of color since I'm Hispanic and minorities might gravitate towards my last name (even though I'm half German). Also, women who experienced domestic violence growing up or married a man with these tendencies. Here's the thing, I am not the poster woman for domestic violence, it's an almost victim story. The story is about getting out early enough so the kids have a better chance of having a great childhood, thus a promising future for both parent and child, which is what happened in my case. Single parents who are struggling and wondering if there's a light at the end of the tunnel. The cover for the kindle and the paperback should be eye-catching since it will be a thumbnail online and it needs to stand out as you may know. The audience will be mostly women I would say in the metropolitan areas. Women ages 25-45 maybe. Readers vary in age so you never know. But if you are in the parenting years, this would be the age group.
Book cover type
Other color requirements
Nothing too dark. Brightness and eye-popping are now the new look out there. See the bright colorful covers I added. My name should be in all caps and very noticeable.
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.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
