Uprooting Anger: Eliminating the Emotion that Kills

October 26, 2010

Uprooting Anger by Charlie CumminsI have worked with entrepreneur and author Charlie Cummins for many years. It was exciting to partner with him in designing the cover of his book, Uprooting Anger: Eliminating the Emotion that Kills. And thrilling when his book was named a finalist in the psychology division of the Ben Franklin Award from the Independent Book Publisher’s Association. The front cover received the highest review possible.

Here is what Charlie had to say about working with me on his book:

“While Vanessa has been an outstanding resource for various projects over the years, she recently partnered with me to design the cover for my book Uprooting Anger: Eliminating the Emotion that Kills. Vanessa listened closely and quickly formulated a shared vision for this project. She presented several concepts in a timely fashion, that allowed us to refine the overall design. She also provided resources to assist in my desire to explore creative images for the cover. Ultimately, Vanessa brought together all the pieces to develop front and back covers that effectively brought all the themes together. She is a trusted advisor to my firm and an absolute professional. I will continue to utilize her expertise in future projects and for my next book.”

Charlie’s book is available on Amazon as both a printed book and on Kindle.

Watch a video presentation I gave about tips for working with a graphic designer where I used Charlie’s book cover as the example of the design process.

Charlie was my guest on the Write Here Write Now radio show and talks about how he leveraged his book for more speaking opportunities.
