Title: Mental Violation Subtitle: One Man's Journey From Rock Bottom To Ivy league
Philip M. Swensen
I still need to get a professional photo taken. About the author: Philip Swensen is a student at the Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management at Cornell University pursuing a career in finance, after serving six and a half years in the United States Air Force. Although he has ambitious career goals, he doesn’t live to work, he works to live. He’s adventurous and he’s a die-hard adrenaline junkie. In his spare time, you’ll find him pursuing extreme sports and a million other hobbies. As a firm believer in the “work hard, play hard” mentality, you’ll see him taking his role seriously during the work week, but once the weekend comes, there’s no telling what shenanigans he’ll get into.
The Mental Violation is a motivational memoir, it’s an underdog story of a kid with a good heart who got picked on in his younger years and searched for acceptance among the wrong crowd once he got to high school; it illustrates the journey to his “rock bottom” due to drug addiction and crippling depression, and then overcoming it all through hard work. The entire purpose of this book is to inspire and show people that it’s never too late to become a better person than who we were in the past and that we can become anyone we want to be in the future.
Anyone looking to read an epic, graphic, transparent, and intense turn around story. Young adults, troubled teens, parents of troubled teens, those who struggle with depression and various other mental issues.
Book cover type
Here are a few words that come to mind when thinking about my book: resilience, determination, triumph, hardship, depression, addiction, inspiration, motivation, success, happiness, mental struggle, turning dreams to reality, and overcoming adversity. I like power colors, and have thought of using a darker background like matte black (like I said, I’m open to other ideas). I want to feel the power of the title and for it to be easy to read. I don’t want any illustration to distract from the seriousness of the title, and of the book as a whole. My story is not one to be taken lightly, so let the power within show on its cover. Let me be frank, I’m open to anything, just try to make sure it sells. Thank you.

Avoid overcomplicating things, don't make it so busy that it distracts from the title.
