Escape the Quicksand of Workplace Burnout: A 5 Step Stress Survival Guide
Dr. Hollie Sturgeon
Orlando area author, Dr. Hollie Sturgeon, has been a clinical pharmacist for more than a decade. When she isn’t at the hospital caring for patients, or mentoring newly-minted pharmacists, you will most likely find her at the lake with her two dogs, constructing an elaborate costume, or playing tabletop games with friends. Escape the Quicksand of Workplace Burnout: A 5 Step Stress Survival Guide is her first book. If you want to learn more about Hollie, or sign up to receive an email when the next book is launched, please visit her website at burnoutdrhollie.com
Please leave a space for the blurb. It's currently in revision. Thank you. The following description is provided as a reference for your creativity (not to be used in place of the blurb, please)... Burnout can be debilitating. Basic “google-ing” results in a bunch of junk science, misinformation, or pre-burnout self-care coping tools. This book goes deeper, guiding the reader to explore the specific issues unique to their situation and providing practical strategies to improve their situation and ultimately break free.
Adults who are are burned out at work from chronic stress. They may be of any gender, nationality, or profession. They're exhausted, frustrated, & feeling trapped.
Book cover type
Don’t know yet
Mood should be hopeful (they're on their way to breaking free) or triumphant (they have broken free). Please relate the title to QUICKSAND and WORK. There are some attached images for your reference One more thing.... there are 3 more books in the series - so if you could give me at least one element that can translate from book to book to make it look uniform, that would be IDEAL.
What to avoid
Please don't give me the same old stock image of something on fire for burnout or a puddle of quicksand with just a hand sticking out. On the attachment I've also provided one bookcover idea that I rejected (with explanations as to why). PLEASE don't make it look like all the other self-help books out there. Seriously, go to google images and input "self help book covers" and you'll see what I mean.
