We all go through times of uncertainty. These times push at you and challenge you in uncomfortable ways. In the discomfort it can be easy, inviting even, to detach, especially when so much in the world seems to already be disconnected. But being disconnected with your life does not serve you. It is not how you are meant to be living. In fact, it goes against the very nature by which you were created to live- in relationship through connection. This was all put into perspective for me through the death of my husband at age 46, the challenges that ensued, and the determination of my spirit to not only survive but to keep an open and connected heart through it all. Even at times when I felt like it could crush me. This book is a journey through the connective pathway of relationship. Sharing what I have learned in my life experiences and at the same time taking you through a journey of your own. Guiding you to draw nearer in each of your four relationships: with yourself, with others, with God, and the Earth. And leading you to the relational root - the heart. It is the four together that make up the fullness of living. If you lack in one, you have holes that need filling because you cannot be complete without knowing the areas that complete you. It is time to explore and to amplify what your innate connections are so that you can become stronger in them and because of them. It is time to explore The Four Relationships.
Female age 25 to 58; from American or English speaking country. Interest in self-help and memoir books.
Book cover type
I know I want a four leaf clover on the front cover and a lucky penny (head's up) on the back cover. I am thinking real-life images for these. Not sure if I want full color or to play with what black and white might look like with the pop of green as the four leaf clover on the front. I would prefer some color on the back cover.
What to avoid
Nothing off the top of my head to avoid. I want to see your unique style come through. The sample image files I am attaching are for examples. I do not have license to use these images. I am not sure if license could be granted or not?
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.
korinnshawkins collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
It has been an absolute pleasure working with Ryan. He nailed the design brief, was very responsive to change requests, and went over and above my expectations. I highly recommend working with Ryan.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
