What makes a good day

By Nora Vasconcelos

This Friday The Daily Post’s writing prompt asked us to describe with photos “a good day

Having this in mind, I chose a number of picks I recently took during a day trip to the countryside that is just a couple of hours away from the Mexican capital.

There, I was amazed by all this greenness, the calm, the fresh air, and all the wild plants that grow in this fields along with the corn, the herbs and the vegetables.

The blue sky and the sunshine were the perfect addition to this wonderful day.

Your Ideal Book Cover

By Nora Vasconcelos

Cover designed by POV

When fiction and reallity collide.

I recently came across an infographic that shows how similar some bookcovers are and that has kept me thinking about what an ideal book cover should look.

Some time ago, while looking for an ideal title, a friend of mine gave me the following advice: “Imagine the stories finally published in a book and is in a bookstore shelve, what title will make it stand out amongst other books in the shop?”

Ever since, I picture imaginary book lovers, wandering in a bookstore, enjoying themselves, just letting their hand picking up all those books that they get attracted to.

According to an article published on The Fast Company, there are some key elements that help a book cover to become an instant target such as striking colors; a design which allows the readers to immediately get an idea what the book is about, and a cover that keeps looking attractive no matter if it’s on the physical book, online or on social media with very small dimensions.

On the other hand, there’s always the option of doing something unusual and going for a cover designed to judge the readers emotions …yes! Just as it sounds! A group of Dutch designers came up with the idea of creating a Book Cover Prototype which allows a book cover to scan the person’s emotions, and “only when it’s approached with no emotions (that means, that the reader’s not judging the book by its cover) the book will open!

But, while each one can decide which is their ideal book cover, why not have a good time looking at the twin designs that some bestsellers have opted for:
