Although she has a professional marketing and sales background, Jillian's greatest passion has always been creative writing. Aided by glasses of boxed wine, she started writing short stories in between studying for business courses at the University of Pittsburgh. Her writing continued after she jetted off to work in Tel Aviv after college where she kept her dreams of being a novelist alive.
After two years of a high-pressure sales job once she returned stateside, she knew this was the premise to a worthwhile story. Don’t Kiss and Sell is Jillian's debut novel.
Originally from Pennsylvania, Jillian has since relocated to Los Angeles. When she isn't working on her second novel, you can find her running along the Santa Monica and Venice bike paths or enjoying a Sunday Bloody Mary.
Descripción del libro
Affairs…Power…Destruction (larger words on back of book at top)
What happens when a woman is seduced by the possibility of success and power? What happens when drugs and an affair cross her path?
Suffocating in her unsophisticated hometown of Grayton, Pennsylvania, Jayden is questioning why she left Tel Aviv and her adventurous lifestyle.
After embarking on a cutthroat career path, her appetite for success becomes so ravenous that she will undertake whatever is necessary to become the ultimate power player.
Sneaking a stimulant here and there becomes habitual. Flirtatious and seemingly innocent text messages delve into an illicit romance. In a quest for beauty, Jayden equally abuses the elliptical at the gym and the ice-cream in the freezer.
Jayden slowly alienates her childhood friends. Who has time for friends when there’s money to be made?
Enter Alex, the local womanizing bar owner who seems to have a knack for getting under Jayden’s skin.
At the end of the day, Jayden is forced to confront the ultimate match in her pursuit of perfection: herself.

I will need the files in layered PSD matching the Create Space cover template I (zip file uploaded with files in this contest) and all fonts. Something that reflects the title. Open to your awesome creativity. Book is 5.5 x 8.5 with approximately 275 pages. It needs to convey a bit of sassyness and personality to match the main character. Less is more...
Lo que debe evitarse
Avoid cartoons & live human photos (other than photo of lips
- silhouettes are okay) No orange please, no boxy fonts. I do not want the book to look self-published - needs to be attractive & inviting.
