Where I'm Supposed To Be
H.K. Christie is the author of We Can’t Be Broken, a novel inspired by her own family’s battle with childhood cancer. She found her passion for writing when she embarked on a one-woman habit breaking experiment. Although she didn’t break her habit she did discover a love of writing and has been at it ever since. She is a native and current resident of the San Francisco Bay Area and a two time graduate of Saint Mary’s College of California. Before becoming a writer, she worked in the Biotech industry in various roles ranging from scientist to project manager. She currently lives in the Bay Area with her husband and beloved Shih-Tzu, Kiki.
Picking up seven years after the end of We Can’t Be Broken, a novel inspired by true events - Where I’m Supposed To Be follows Casey through her late twenties as she navigates marriage, career, starting over and defining who she is and what she really wants from life. When Casey and husband, Jason, decide to add a new addition to their home, a feisty Shih-Tzu named Roxie, a glimmer of hope resonates for the first time in their young marriage. Months into life with Roxie, Casey and Jason’s marriage is on the rocks and they’re confronted with Jason’s surprising diagnosis. Not soon after, Casey’s deepest fears come to fruition leading her to question herself, her choices, and all she thought she knew. (Themes in the book: healing after divorce, family, friendship, self-discovery, starting over, travel, independent woman, companion animals - black/white Shih-Tzu. The story starts with getting the dog and then Casey and Jason decide to share custody/ownership during their separation and subsequent divorce. Roxie ends up being what ties their families together.)

Book cover type
Other color requirements
No specifics - but not too much pink.
Needs to fit with the genre of women's contemporary fiction/family life/divorce/sisters/sagas/friendship. Similar authors: Sinead Moriarty, Kerry Fisher, Alison Ragdale Please match the genre. Note: all my books have inspirational, happy endings.
What to avoid
The first book in the series, We Can't Be Broken (WCBB): https://www.amazon.com/H.K.-Christie/e/B01MZGWRVE/ref=sr_ntt_srch_lnk_1?qid=1527635579&sr=1-1 I may need to update the WCBB cover to match, Where I'm Supposed To Be. One of the issues I have with the current cover is that I've received feedback it gives off a religious vibe - that wasn't intentional or desired. Please don't make any connection with religion. I will likely hire designer to re-do cover of We Can't Be Broken as well. There will be two more in the series - so whatever design is done needs to be able to be adapted for three more books.

LSDdesign is certainly one of the best designers that I have worked with. Very responsive, intuitive, attention to detail, thoughtful attitude, and easy to work with is what really makes the difference. This designer is very talented. Great business etiquette. I highly recommend LSDdesign.
