This is book one in a series of fiction books with a focus on child abuse. The title is going to be either 'The White Soldier' or 'The Muddy Path' and the author name is 'Juliet Summers'. The target market for the book is adult females, survivors of child sexual abuse and professionals in this area. 1 in 3 women and 1 in 6 men have been sexually assaulted by the age of 18. The size of the book is 6 x 9 inches.
Please note we need a FRONT, BACK and SPINE for a printed book and FRONT cover for the ebook.
The story is of a boy whose father is physically abusive so at the age of 11, he runs away and is adopted by a fictitious Indigenous tribe. When he is 14 he refuses to go through with his arranged marriage and is sent back out into the white world. He ends up in a new city where he meets an 18 year old prostitute who shows him how to make money by being a prostitute. Now his life sucks but despite him dabbling in drugs and alcohol, he never gives up. The book is entitled The White Soldier (life is like a battle) or The Muddy Path (which he must travel) because he is a survivor and the cover needs to reflect that. I would like the vibe to be of a person who is a child abuse 'survivor' and not a 'victim'.
I am leaving the creativity up to the talented designers.
