Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
I am an author of young adult and middle grade fiction. Many of the books I write have justice oriented themes. The current cover I have for my book "Cracker" is confusing to people and I want to upgrade it.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
Cracker is a book with alternative history. In this book, the world as we know it is turned upside down. Black people have power and privilege and white people are an oppressed minority. The point of the book is to help white people understand what it feels like to experience microagressions, prejudice and systemic injustice. The current cover is confusing. Some people think it is a fantasy book with a dragon eye on it. It is not. It is a reality based book. Also, currently, books for young adults tend to be text rich and not so much pictures. I'll attaches some ideas but if you scan this link of the top books this year you will see what I mean. https://www.goodreads.com/choiceawa…books-2016
The story is about a blonde girl, Ann, in a majority black world. She feels isolated and alone. She has to find her voice and learn to advocate for herself and for justice.
