Author Poll: Writer Ellen Cumbess wants your help with her book cover

Ellen Cumbess is self-publishing a book with Outskirts Press. And she wants your help with the book cover.

As part of a team-building exercise at work, Ellen Cumbess took a personality profile assessment that classified attendees as either lions, monkeys, turtles, or camels. Ellen was a lion. As this light bulb of realization began to flicker, the author experienced a historical recanting of events that led to the creation of this lion personality. This was the starting point of Ellen’s exploration of her life’s history, which took her down the road she’d always wanted to travel, the road she had been on her entire life—without a steering wheel. 

Tales of a Lion is the memoir of a native New Yorker struggling to overcome anger and resentment stemming from the events of her early childhood. It is the story of a lion’s self examination of a life spent roaring in search of inner peace; and in the end provides an answer to the question: Does a lion always have to roar?

Ellen Cumbess and her husband have six grown children and four grandchildren. Her New York City upbringing and diverse family history provided her with an abundance of stories and opinions, “all of which I am compelled to share.” Ellen enjoys traveling and meeting new people, but she is happiest at home, in Alabama.

  1. I chose “A” because of the color green on “B.” It just seemed like an off color that I get sometimes if I am running low on an ink color. “A” is fresh to me and I can feel the Tigers mouth and teeth.. Good Luck!
