Descripción del libro
The overwhelming aftermath of sexual violation is a rocky landscape of anger, hate, confusion, shame and secrecy. Chuck Tyler shares his lifetime of sexual abuse recovery experience in "Taking it Back". Whether the reader is working through their own journey of recovery, or they are looking for ways to help a loved one through the confusing aftermath of sexual abuse, Taking it Back can help by tackling the big questions we all have during this challenging time, sorting through the emotional turmoil and finally taking back their power so they can rebuild their life. Chuck personally experienced over a decade of sexual abuse by his father associated with ongoing psychological abuse. Whatever your personal experience may be, the effects of different kinds of sexual trauma – and other kinds of abuse – are very similar. In addition to anger and depression, these typically include shame, self-blame and reduced self worth among so many others. Taking It Back discusses the different effects that sexual violation can have on a person throughout their life as well as the methods Chuck used for overcoming them. By sharing his story of abuse and recovery, he is hoping that the reader will find not only a connection to what he went through, but also find some guidance for their own journey of recovery.

I designed this book as a guide for those who are navigating their way through recovery from sexual abuse. It’s also a resource for people who would like to understand what their loved ones may be going through on their recovery journeys.

This is obviously a very serious topic, but I don't want the cover art to be "heavy" in nature. I've seen other books in this genre that have a sad child's face on the cover and I'm not into that. I would prefer the feeling to be "lighter" so the person seeing the cover will get a message of hope. The theme of the book is about regaining your own power - the power that you gave away when you were sexually abused. So something strong and hopeful sounds good to me. I want the person looking at the cover of this book - the person who has been sexually abused - to see a beacon of guidance and hope for themselves. The design should make the reader say, "wow, look at that, he did it. He overcame the effects of abuse. If I read that book, I can do that, too." I like "flowing" imagery that suggests movement.
Lo que debe evitarse
The design should feel modern, not retro.
I personally prefer non-serif fonts, but I'm open to suggestions.
