Today I'm excited to tell you about one writer that is about to have a long held dream of hers come true: she is courageously announcing the launch of her new book today, due out this summer!
She is our very own Jules aka Big Girl Bombshell, Here.
Her book is titled:
Click 3 Times
Beyond the Flying Monkeys
And yes, she loves that great old movie The Wizard of Oz. The metaphors in her book are based upon the rich symbolism from The Wizard of Oz.
Why am I involved with her book launch?? Because I had the honor to be asked to do the cover art for her book!
I've followed Jules' blog for sometime now, and connected with her heart and vision of learning, changing and growing from the inside out, and with her courage to share that process with the world. Here is the cover for her new book (can click to enlarge):
For all the details and links, please visit Jules (HERE) . Her book is honest and rich in imagery. The questions she asks along her "yellow brick road", her personal journey, will open up your thinking to all sorts of new possibilities! I think you'll enjoy a peek behind the curtain of Big Girl Bombshell.
For those interested in peeking behind the curtain of how the art was created... I'll be doing a series on my art blog (HERE) as to how it was made.
I'll bare it all:
from the ratty looking preliminary sketches
to playing with color schemes (some were ghastly!)
to what all the symbolism on the cover means
to tips on how to create your own cover for that e-book you know you want to write
to the finished book cover
I took lots of photos, so it'll take several posts to cover it all. It should be fun... if you're into that kind of thing, LOL! Join me over at Art by Retta for it, starting later today.
Congratulations Jules, on the birth announcement of your new book!
