Book cover for mental health fiction
Check out l_g_riva's Book cover contest…
The Existence Of Amy
Lana Grace Riva
Lana Grace Riva has written two books, one nonfiction the other fiction, both based on her experiences of mental health. Her first book 'Happier Thinking' is a short collection of tips and exercises to maintain a healthy mind. Her second book 'The Existence Of Amy' is a fictional story based on the reality of life with OCD, depression and anxiety. https://linktr.ee/lanagraceriva
My book is a contemporary story about a young woman suffering with mental illness (OCD, anxiety and depression). It is a fictional story overall, however, it is based on a true experience. In addition to being an education on these illnesses, it is also a story of hope and friendship.

My book is already published, but I would like to change the existing cover. It is currently a plain block colour with two sloping lines. This design’s intention was to reflect the emptiness of how a life can feel when you suffer with mental illness. The sloping lines representing the fragility and unbalanced nature of the main character’s existence. However, this cover is not pretty and appealing which I appreciate is causing readers to pass it by. So, I would like to change it in the hope of attracting more readers. I really would like the cover to be described as beautiful. I think a minimalist, modern design would be ideal, however, I am open to considering other options. It has been reviewed well on Instagram, so a design that appeals to Bookstagrammers is essential.
What to avoid
I would prefer if stock imagery is not used.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at $399.
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.

Marija is a gifted designer. Designed my book cover, interior formatting, and created social media graphics all on time and professionally! They all turned out better than I could have hoped for. Can't recommend highly enough!
