The Concept. Describe your current idea for book cover.
the book cover would have a road that start off dark and turns to color. something with a caterpillar on a journey turning into a butterfly (to signal transformation) iI like the imagery cover, but I am thinking fo this cover the use of color for an accent may work better. I have some very general ideas and would like to lean on your creativity... I want the emotion of you matter to come through,it's not too late, you can still live your best life if you are willing to put in the work and unpack what's been holding you back. Transformation is liberating...
