Design ease--Please view 3 author sites we like:
shilpigowda.com, paulabutturini.com, diannedixon.com
We like format, clean and helps to simply & set the elements in place. Items in quotes below represent titles or links:
. Same window size as samples above with ocean background softened slightly, rounded corners
. "Kalena Cook" (header across the top in Mrs. Eaves typeface or Garamond Book)
. Choose beautiful blue green color in wave to the left as a background beyond window and graduate to slightly lighter as going down
. Book cover slight angle with white pages and back cover (3-d), position so some rays from sun come above it.
Underneath book add: "Buy this book"
links buttons Amazon.com, B&N, Borders (look up "Birthing a Better Way" to get each link)
. Author photos KC (1st) & MC, side by side same sizes, with round corners softened with white, names underneath (see "about us for spelling)
Subtitles to left side vertically in Trade Gothic font:
Book (new page has overview, add link at top for "Excerpt")
News & Events
Make each link active to a blank page so we can add copy (go by samples). Want to be able to use your design to set up on host and go live right away.
Overall tone: beautiful, optimistic, clear, inviting, warm
elegant, authoritative, welcoming, non-intimidating, clean
Thank you and look forward to your help.
