One of the early requirements in the self publishing journey was to start considering what I wanted my cover to look like. That was one of the first questions from the publisher who produced my book. My memoir is about perception and how I have never really regarded myself as different for the majority of my years. For the cover, I wanted to create a visual reflection of my physical image that represents how I see myself. My idea was to use the shading from the sun setting in the west, creating a tall, long, shadow image of me with my legs extending for forever. This is one of my first attempts.
