I worked with StelaMarconi on my book cover/back. She was incredible, making changes very quickly and offering prompt answers when I had questions.
She really made this whole process so easy, and her design if absolutely fabulous!
You did and incredible job! Thank you for listening to all of out notes and making the corrections in a quick and timely fashion.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
This is a book about menstruation for girls from 12-16. In the book I provide information about menstruation in a casual way (not authoritative) as well as having over 50 quotes from other girls and women about their experiences. I also provide information regarding menstrual supplies (mainstream as well as alternative), comfort techniques, and ways to celebrate.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I am very open to cover ideas, please be creative. I originally had thought of a girl with a flower crown, a little out of focus, but I am not sure if this would be appealing for the age range I am focused on. I want something warm and inviting, yet fun, so a teen would actually want to pick it up. This is a book that is different than the typical puberty instruction manual, this is filled with quotes from their peers and empowering ways to look at and deal with their body.
I will upload a pic of a book called Body Drama, that has a fun and real looking cover... again, I am not set on a look like this one, just an idea.
