A book’s cover and title are the first two things that a person comes in contact with, and thus are the first clues as to what that book is about. A good title and cover both need to accurately convey the content while also making it easier for the reader to figure out the general genre and topics covered as well as make it stand out from others in its genre at the same time. That’s a tough order to fill! Here’s how the team for the upcoming Spring 2019 title is handling this part of the process.
Ooligan Press is pleased to announce the acquisition of the untitled memoir from Rosa del Duca. In 1999, Rosa del Duca joined the National Guard. It was her opportunity to make something more of her life, but as her unease over the military’s role reaches a boiling point with the attacks on 9/11, Rosa comes to the realization that she is a conscientious objector. She must now decide how far she is willing to go to stand up for what she believes in—and what she is willing to sacrifice in return. We are excited to be able to work with del Duca on her first full-length literary work.
