I want to have some images that show the contrast between a mom struggling and feeling overwhelmed/unhappy/stressed AND a mom who feels refreshed/happy/relaxed and ready to take on the world. I like it when the title breaks up the two images so you can see what the book will do for you. (like one image at the top, the title in the middle, and the second image on the bottom).
I want "The 10 Minute Refresh for Moms" to be bold and stand out- something that moms and potential readers will be able to see from far away. I like it when the title is the main focus and the pictures or images come to life after reading the title.
This is targeted towards moms that are overwhelmed and never take time for themselves. I want moms to see it and say, I need that book! It should be feminine, fun, and uplifting (light colors that make it pop). The images should include kids (to show that it's a mom and not just a stressed out female). I also talk about making lemons into lemonade/lemon meringue/pesto/lemon bars and all yummy things lemon, so that could be an idea for a happy image (but doesn't have to be). I want it to look like an easy read, happy, something that moms can retreat from the world and enjoy.
The back cover will have text, but I will supply it when I choose a final cover. I like it when the front cover bleeds into the spine and back so it appears to have a flow and be a continuous picture.
Feel free to surprise me and come up with something totally creative. I don't have my heart set on anything in particular, so you may have an idea that really speaks to my heart. Have fun! Also, I have added more pictures at the bottom of things that I like that are in a similar genre.
