The Skinny Girl
Steve Matthews was born in the UK in 1953, migrating to Australia in 1985. At the age of 55, he sold his business interests to fulfill a lifetime’s ambition to write. Since then Steve’s acclaimed children’s books have been published in Australia, UK, Canada and the USA and his work in children’s literacy at home and abroad has been acknowledged in the Australian Parliament. 'The Skinny Girl' is Steve’s first adult novel. He now writes full time from a 90 year old cottage in the grounds of a beautiful farm he shares with his wife Diane and a variety of animals, outside Sydney.
The novel deals explores: 1. Domestic violence 2. Abuse 3. Women’s issues BACK-COVER BLURB Shy, petite Daisy Croucher lives in other people’s shadows and is practically invisible, even in her own family. She is surprised and flattered when popular pub local Jeff Singleton looks her way. ‘Skinny Minnie,’ he calls her. Jeff has a golden rule when it comes to women – never keep one for more than thirty days. Then he meets Daisy. Life with Jeff is a roller-coaster ride, the likes of which Daisy never imagined. She soon discovers that marriage consists of more than playing happy families in the suburbs. Daisy’s marriage has its secrets. Raw, powerful and confronting, ‘The Skinny Girl’ positions the reader to walk a mile in Daisy’s shoes. Can Daisy step out of the shadows and shine?

Definitely went outside the box with the design. It is not only eye catching - but it tells the reader the premise, it's about the evolution of a boy into a man who winds up a contract killer. Highly recommend Michaelbrent Collings for design work.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
