Women Are With You
Beth Schaefer is an author, editor, educator, and indie publisher. She has composed and published six books to date, and is continually writing and working on creative, academic, and communications projects.
This book is a collection of edited interviews of female domestic abuse survivors. They tell their stories, and they describe how they freed themselves from their abuser. It sounds like a dark, depressing topic, but this book--although there are grim elements, given the nature of the subject matter--is inspirational and inspires positivity, possibility, strength, and comfort.
1.) Women who are currently in domestically abusive relationships. 2.) Loved ones of women who are currently in domestically abusive relationships. 3.) Female survivors of domestically abusive relationships. 4.) Shelters, Peace Centers, and Foundation Staff, 5.) Students pursuing careers in social services in domestic violence.

What to avoid
I do not want sentimental imagery. No figures of people or animals. I like autumn colors, with some sunflower yellow. Just an idea. Not required. The purpose of this cover is not to pop out and grab attention. It should have more of a timeless feel. More of an illustrated, almost stencil-like visual, as opposed to a sleek graphic design.
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.
elizabethjoanschaefer collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
