(Title) Terminal illness is a misdiagnosis (Sub-title) Discover a palliative care alternative therapy that you can survive
I am a British National and have lived and worked in India for the last 26 years. I am an entrepreneur professionally but have spent the last 20 years exploring alternative healing therapies. My hobby is healing terminally ill patients after doctors have given them a death sentence and sent them home to die.
If you have been given a diagnosis of a terminal incurable illness by a medical doctor and sent home to die, you will want to read this book. I can with 100% certainty guarantee you that your medical diagnosis is wrong. By reading this book you will learn why that diagnosis is wrong. You will also learn how to switch off the excruciating pain that you are currently in like a ‘light-switch’. Learn how to use a certain type of music therapy to put your disease process into stasis to give yourself the time that you need to fix the problems in your life that have caused your health issues. And you will get a step-by-step guide of the resources that you need, including counselors and education material, that is required to help you on what could be the most extraordinary cathartic journey that you will go on in life to fully recover your health.
Anybody who has been given a diagnosis of a terminal incurable disease.
Book cover type
At this point, I have no clear creative vision for the book cover so am open to all ideas. The book cover must convey 'hope' and 'optimism'. It should look and feel inspiring. The book offers health solutions where currently none exist. Giving people who have received a terminal incurable diagnosis a fresh chance at life. Designs could be developed around concepts such as 'hope is eternal', 'light in dark places', 'light at the end of the tunnel', 'the path less trodden', 'the game of life is not over until it's over'. But all need to be 'inspirational' and most importantly convey 'hope'.
What to avoid
It should not look like other books on terminal incurable illness/cancer or palliative care. The cover needs to be as different as the content in the book.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at $399.
Full copyright with production-ready files for digital and/or print.
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.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
dxQy collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
I'm very grateful for taking this route to choosing my book cover. Once it's done right, you won't need to do it again. This designer got it done right.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
