Jean-Philippe Touzeau


Trinity Silverman is a 27 year-old successful analyst for a forex company. But inside, she is full of fear, stress and doesn't know much about which direction to give to her life. Late one night, she is offered a pill by a researcher working for a big pharma company. "It will squash your fears for 24 hours and give you the utmost confidence", he tells her... and it works. But after that, life takes on a roller coaster.

Here is the style I would like:

You must use the picture added. Try to make her look older (late 20s) and it must be as big as possible on the cover. I don't like to much the shape of the mouth so you can cut it if necessary.

The French title means "The Woman Without Fear" or "The Fearless Woman". But the female hero is actually not that fearless, especially without the pill. The book doesn't deal with murders and things like that. Just deep personal fears and stresses, and how to deal with them. Thank you.

Thanks to everyone for the great proposals you are submitting. You guys rock !

Let me add this : The cover is for the first book of a series (9 or 10 episodes) so I would like to keep the same design throughout the whole story, just changing the pix or/and color. And of course, I would like to work with the same creative/designer. :)
