Spotlight: James J. Cudney IV

James J. Cudney IV

James J. Cudney IV

I met James J. Cudney IV, during my latest book launch. His name caught my eyes, due to the “IV” at the end of his name, as the fourth in the line of something… I thought he must be royal. Names to me have a meaning, and history, James’s name has a high resonance.

He says about him: “James is my given name, but most folks call me Jay. I live in New York City, grew up on Long Island, and graduated from Moravian College. I spent fifteen years building a technology career in the retail, sports, media, and entertainment industries. I’m a voracious reader in my favorite genres (thriller, suspense, contemporary, mystery, and historical fiction), as books transport me to a different world where I can immerse myself in so many fantastic cultures and places. Writing has been a part of my life as much as my heart, my mind, and my body. I decided to pursue my passion by dusting off the creativity inside my head and drafting outlines for several novels. I quickly realized I was back in my element growing happier and more excited with life each day. My goal in writing is to connect with readers who want to be part of great stories and who enjoy interacting with authors. To get a strong picture of who I am, check out my author website or my blog.”

He is social on Amazon, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Goodreads, Linkedin.

James accepted to participate in my book launch and tour, he has been so helpful in showing me new ways to do a launch, thus as a sign of my gratitude he is receiving a color reading from which he can deduce his advantage. In our choice of colors, we must consider first the favorable colors we are born into under our zodiac sign, those are the colors others respond to positively and when they do, guess what happens? Doors open and opportunities come our way.



James was born under the zodiac sign of Pisces – Febr.19-Mar. 20, a lovely water sign that makes people very friendly, compassionate, artistic, intuitive, musical, and gentle. I bet he either listens to music a lot or plays a musical instrument. His creative side is writing books and he wrote a lot of them.
The colors of his zodiac sign are hues and values of Purple, on the cool side of the color spectrum. They include lilac, violet, mauve, purple and sea green, which is the accent color of the water sign.

In one of his living spaces, James might want to consider one purple color block wall and the rest of the walls painted in light blue. The planet Neptune with its luminous light blue color rule James if he was born in February, and the planet Uranus with its streaks of yellow, brown and red color rules over his Pisces sign if he was born in March. James can consider all this mix of colors in his life expressions.

Looking at some of his online photos, I had the impression he is a playful person, ready to please others and a very likable person. I want to seduce him (not in a literal way) with an outfit in the colors he was born into, which are beneficial to him. With these colors, he will charm and attract the right people or situations to him.
He might never wear this color combination, I hardly see American men in the purple hues, but at least he will consider it, I am sure. His personality created this color palette for me. As a designer, my goal is to dress men and women or design their homes for their character not just for the current trends. The concept board is self-explanatory, it includes all the colors for a Pisces person, with the choice of shoes as the color accent. I hope he likes it.
