rados777 was a joy to work with. He was very attentive to detail, responded to messages quickly, and was so accommodating. He never complained about change requests. I could not have asked for better. Also, he has a beautiful eye for design. He gave me exactly what I asked for.
- Virtually Possible
I am amazed that this designer can so accurately portray EXACTLY what I imagine and want for a book cover. Time and again.
This was such an easy project to complete. Varianet was quick and responsive and it made the job a breeze!
The work with Didi was very pleasant. His suggestions met my taste. Requests from me were implemented quickly and well. All in all very recommendable.
How sandraeduclos started their book cover journey
Waiting for Luigi
Sandra E. Duclos, Ph.D.
Dr. Sandra Duclos is a recently retired clinical psychologist. She tends to be a perfectionist and high achiever, and is passionate about helping others. She loves dogs, art (the impressionists are her favorite), dance, music and the theater. The seaside is her favorite place, and she is very sentimental.
Angela, a successful attorney, decides to revisit her painful childhood in an attempt to heal from the abuse and neglect she suffered as a foster child and her conflicted relationship with her biological father, Luigi. The book chronicles her experiences in each of six placements between the ages of 5 and 16, as she grows in assertiveness and achieves. The author offers a seven step strategy to heal old emotional wounds, and shows (through Angela), that a difficult childhood does not have to hold you back or continue to haunt you.
Adults, ages 18-70 - both genders; people interested in self help and compelling stories, and social activists; social workers, teachers, psychologists, family therapists, foster parents, the clergy, Italian-Americans.

What colors do you want to see in your design?
I envision a girl of age 5 or 6, sitting at the seashore, facing the ocean with her back to us. Her hair is a light brown with golden streaks. Laying or sitting beside her is a black, long haired dog, and she has her hand on the dog. The mood is a little solemn, but not somber - more pensive. Both the girl and the dog have their eyes fixed on the water. NOTE: Feel free to use some creativity, too. Surprise me. You might have some ideas I hadn't thought of but would love.
What to avoid
No bold, shocking colors or weird abstract designs.
