The Intentional Life: Reflections from Conscious Living
Meredith Whipple Callahan
Biografía del autor
I am a leadership development consultant, an executive coach, and an author. This is my second book and I'm delighted to make it happen together!
Descripción del libro
The Intentional Life is a series of personal essays about how to live consciously and purposefully. (I call it intentionality: the process of consciously aligning what you do with what you want.) The content is all collected from my blog, The Intentional. You can find it (I suggest it so you have a sense of what it's all about) at: http://www.theintentional.net.
Público al que se apunta
My target audience is a male member of Oprah's Book Club who works in the corporate world. It's someone who sits at the intersection between nonfiction business book readers who like organizational topics (e.g., Harvard Business Review) and Oprah Book Club readers who are interested in mindfulness, spirituality, and self-help.

Diseño de inspiración
Feels eye catching and welcoming.
I like that this is graphic and interesting. The couple of colors is interesting.
I like the visually engaging design here. Intentionality is an abstract concept, so some representative but abstract design that pulls it together could work well.
Simple yet compelling.
I think it can be hard to make non-fiction books seem sexy, especially when they have big concepts. This starts to do that.
I think this book feels serious but interesting and intimate - a balance I'd like to strike.
I like the bold but approachable colors.
Something hand-drawn - or hand drawn looking - feels appropriate for the book. There are many elements inside tha twill be hand drawn.

Otros requisitos relativos al color
Not color requirements, but it's a plus if it coordinates with my previous book (Indispensable: How to Succeed at Your First Job and Beyond). You can find it on Amazon.

Necesidades de diseño
I am really open to lots of ideas here. I have had a couple of people throw around cover ideas, but nothing has popped yet. My best suggestion is to read a couple of pieces on my blog (all the content of the book comes from there - http://www.theintentional.net) and then propose something that you feel captures the essence of it. It is all about living on purpose, living intentionally, living with choice in your everyday actions. So something that conveys being intentional in a graphic form - while feeling like it's authentic to me (as these essays are so personal!) - is what I'm looking for.
Lo que debe evitarse
Nothing too meditative or Buddhist in nature: no meditating people or piles of rocks. Nothing too playful or childish; it should not be mistaken for chick lit or a kids book.
