D. Todd Deeken
Biografía del autor
Todd Deeken has been telling stories and having outdoor adventures his entire life. He wrote multiple short stories as a teenager, and moved to Los Angeles in his twenties to pursue screenwriting. After fourteen years, more than a dozen scripts, and many solo camping and climbing adventures in LA, Todd moved to Park City, Utah with his wife and son. He built the well respected car review show “Everyday Driver” and never stopped writing. Fatherhood and time outdoors delayed this novel, but allowed Todd to pull parenting moments into the fictitious world he was creating. Paper Father is his first novel.
Descripción del libro
Everything in Samuel Kerr’s life is gone. After nearly four years in the debtor’s prison system, he’s released into a changed nation. When the financial system collapsed and all debts were called, Sam thought he was sending his wife and young son to live in safety with his parents. But as he served their family’s sentence, the nation sank deeper into turmoil. When resources dwindled, the wealthy barricaded themselves in new enclaves nicknamed “The Shining Cities”. Chaos reigns outside these city walls as everyone else fights for survival. When Sam reaches his parent’s home, he finds them dead and his wife and son missing. Clues amongst the rubble suggest his family is in the Shining City of Aspen, more than a thousand miles away. With few supplies, no car, and little chance of survival, Sam sets off toward Aspen. Fearing he won’t survive the trip, Sam begins writing down his thoughts for his young son, Danny. Through ambush, new friends, and betrayal he uses a legal pad as his confessional and attempt to pass on the things he’s learned. It may be a close to fatherhood as he gets.

The key elements of this book are the journey and the journal. Sam is writing to his son while traveling and knowing he might not survive. Two approaches have resonated with me for the cover. The first is a very simple use of a legal pad look, as that is how the journals are written. The second style is a full cinematic movie poster feel, incorporating moments or images from the adventure or journey Sam takes. There is likely a middle ground here - possibly with the legal pad as a sky and a mountain range in the bottom half allowing for a canvas of adventure images. I'm here to have those ideas corralled. I'm open to a designer following what strikes them based on the information provide.
Lo que debe evitarse
I don't want to give my lead character a specific face, but would rather leave that for the reader to create in their mind.

Evaluaciones del cliente
I came back to ask Merc Studio to do a relaunch for one of my books because I got so wonderful feedback for her work she did with the cover of my book "Glückskeks"
Since I want to create a sort of brand, I needed sth very similar, but different :-) and she delivered.
I'd like to emphasize that her design is not only well crafted; she is extremely friendly and patient with my long-winded explications and my constant asking her to do detailed, small changes.
She demonstrates an excellent service mentality.
I wish I'd do my writing faster to do the next cover with her. :-)
