The process of picking the perfect book cover was the most challenging part of the entire book for me. My Publisher, Lee Gessner, probably the most kind and patient man I have ever met, hired David Trumble to design my book cover. I hope you had an opportunity to see David's TedX video from yesterday. Honestly, I was a little worried at first, how would this young, hip, artist living in England be able to capture my vision? I have not been blessed with the gift of expressing myself artitisically so I was praying that David Trumble would create something and I would "just know" the perfect cover when I saw it! Ha! I so appreciate David's patience with me on our several Skype conversationsas he would nicely listen to me try to communicate my vision for the book, who my target audience is, the image I wanted to brand, etc. He would send me a few cover ideas, I would pick a couple I like, send them to a few trusted girlfriends for their opinions - this went on for several weeks.
Getting very close to our deadline, this final cover image came through with a few other very good designs. I liked them all, but I kept coming back to this one. I decided to sleep on it, I woke up the next morning and I just KNEW this was the one!
