Descripción del libro
Gone to Russia, back in two weeks. Maddie Nicolas left the note on the kitchen table. It forced Ciara Nicolas to give up her fledgling life in Dublin and return to the family’s small midlands town of Castlebailey to help raise her young sister Fern. Over twenty years later Maddie is back with another note. It has a single dollar bill attached. A million more reasons to forgive are waiting for you. A ticket to Southern California and a million dollars each to collect, if they agree to spend time with their estranged mother. Ciara and Fern tell their partners, I’ll be back in two weeks. For Ciara it means escaping an alcoholic husband and provincial life. Fern must take the time from her new fiancé and a high-demand career in the international perfume industry. They meet Maddie, who they learn has dedicated her life to educating impoverished children in the Nepalese wildness, and her close ally, Luke Forleo. The Nicolas Note transports you across three continents from Ireland to America and eventually the wilderness of Nepal. Their adventure with Maddie turns out to be as colourful as the woman herself. Yet, her daughters unfold a family legacy of betrayal and unspoken truths that spans three generations, including their own. As they get to know each other and themselves, the questions remain – Why did Maddie leave? And why did she eventually come back?
Público al que se apunta
women 35 - 55, Ireland and the UK, who enjoy family dramas, stories about contemporary life that they can relate to. They are often members of book clubs and enjoy an entertaining storyline with hard to predict twists. As I’m a trained in mantra meditation and Ayurveda, these elements filter through to my books as does my former career as a lingerie designer. So my readers are women who are open to complementary health, mysticism, Eastern culture, yoga while enjoying the sensory elements of beautiful fabrics, good food and wine. They don’t take life too seriously.

!!Please note the the addition of bulletpoints below!! As we approach the end of the qualifying round, I’d like to thank all the designers who have submitted designs, especially those who have re-submitted based on comments. I understand the time involved in any creative project so I greatly appreciate that you’ve shared your time and talent with me, even if I haven’t favored your work. As there are many notes and comments now, I thought I’d make it easier for you with bulletpoints of the key elements of the storyline. However, I’d still appreciate if you’d take the time to read the original text below. There’s a lot of elements but I’m not into fuss - simple is better, less is more. So, here goes - the bullet points - A handwritten note left on a kitchen table (as you would have done before texting or What’s App) - Two main characters are sister but there’s a ten year age gap - Nepal - the scents, fabrics, colours, the patterns - Perfume. A background element but I put a lot of research into it and the theme runs through out. The book is broken into sections, The Top Note, The Middle Note, The Base (heart) Note. These are perfume terms and further reinforce the note element. - The Mother. She’s a colourful character who would be considered a hippy/ New Age. She works with crystals, owns a Nepalese gift store and has a giant statue of her archetype, Athena in her hallway. She’s quirky. Below is the original brief that is still very relevant. A key element is a note so perhaps a note in someone's hand could be good. The story is told through the eyes of two sisters aged 30 and 40. I don't want any faces clearly visible. Possibly two women on the cover as the story is as much about the clash and love between the sisters as it is about their relationship to their mother. One of the sisters is a perfumer, which gives a double play on the note theme - the paper note and the perfume notes. if that could be combined in some way, perhaps?
Lo que debe evitarse
An overly feminine vibe. I'm not a fan of pink on book covers. I like the primary colours red and blue. I have an image in my head of red, orange hues. The book opens in the month of September and I plan to launch in September so, I'm thinking autumnal colours might work. I notice I'm drawn to books with a woman in a red coat....but there are a lot of those about and I don't want the cover to look generic. Obviously, it'd be great to have a draw to encourage readers to pick up the book in the first place - that it stands out from the other covers. Sorry - I guess all authors want that! The note in the book was originally handwritten in 1990 and the family trace back over their childhood in the eighties. Although the story has many flashbacks to those times it is set in the present day. I'm adding this information in case it helps you select a suitable font.
