Aideen_henry got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Exciting book cover for autobiography about disability
Check out Aideen_henry's Book cover contest…
Autobiography about my life living with Cerebral Palsy and the back cover reads: Does it wet the bed? tells the honest and encouraging story of my life, living with Cerebral Palsy. The story details my struggles and triumphs, my hopes and fears, offering a totally unique and personal insight into what it’s like to be disabled. Born in Ireland in 1983, Aideen was the third daughter born to her parents. But her birth didn’t go to plan and medical negligence resulted in the diagnosis of Cerebral Palsy when Aideen was three years old. Aideen’s parents were advised to send her to a “special school” for disabled children after being told that it was unlikely that Aideen would ever achieve anything. Refusing to give up on their daughter’s future, they fought for her right to a mainstream education. Aideen proved her academic capabilities and went on to receive a 2:1 Honours degree from Oxford Brookes University. But employment and love didn’t come easy. Aideen fought ignorance and discrimination to eventually secure a full-time management role in a charity helping other disabled people. Loneliness often haunted her and she feared always being alone. Never giving up hope, she took a chance with online dating and eventually found someone to love her and her four wheels. A diamond ring and a fairy tale wedding followed before two pink lines signalled Aideen’s journey into motherhood. Would her disability finally defeat her as she faced the enormous challenges of being a disabled parent? Book will have a few target audiences but primarily women 30-50 and parents of disabled children who are looking for answers and reassurances about the future.
What's your vision?
I would like a front cover for my book which conveys the positivity of living with a disability, despite its challenges. #1 - I'd like the word "it" in the title to be emphasied.Story behind the title is attached to give context. #2 - An idea put to me was a sketch of a young child, head in hands with the mum and nun arguing behind her, I know this contradicts the positive image but we'd like to play about with ideas at this stage. #3 - A cover without an image or picture might look better. I've attached a few ideas.
