New Life Within | Book Cover Design

November 14, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

This post is a little different from what I usually do. It's still photography related, but it's much more personal. I'll make it short (which is hard, because I'm very much a writer).

About nine months ago, I was approached by author Jillian Amodio, a young woman and mother with whom I'd become acquainted with through our personal blogs. (Yes, I have a personal blog. Told you I'm a writer. ;) She asked me to contribute to her next book, New Life Within, a pro-life project benefiting the Gabriel Network. It's an organization in the DC and Baltimore, MD area which seeks to minister to and aid women in crisis pregnancies. A Chicken Soup for the Soul style of book, it's being filled with inspirational stories of motherhood by contributing writers. I am one of those. After praying about and considering it, I agreed. It's far more personal than I ever dreamed of sharing. The personal details of my pregnancies, births and feelings, both overwhelming and joyous, as a mother...it's all in there.

The book is in the process of publication through a publishing company called CausePub. However, the way it works is we need votes! Stories with the most votes will make it to final print. Curious about the grit intimate details of me? (It's not actually grit, but I can't believe I'm sharing it.) Go here to vote for my story: Not the Nanny (That title? I had three babies in three years...quite young. Yeah, people thought I was the nanny.)

But...there's more. I also designed and submitted a cover for the book.

I'm pretty excited about it! Combining my obvious love of photography, graphic design...and babies...I came up with a cover that I feel modernly and simplistically portrays the beauty of new life. Something I want a reader to be drawn to from the first look. Submissions also need to be voted on! Please vote for my cover design, too! Gail Centeno Photography - book cover design.

If you're interested in supporting this cause, the project is seeking 500 pledges to purchase the book on it's release date of Dec. 19, 2013. Go to the main CausePub website to find out more on how you can support New Life Within! I think there is very little, if anything, better than preserving the sanctity of life.

Thank you!


{I should probably write an UPDATE POST. ;) My cover was selected and the book was recently released! Find it on Amazon!}
