What's your vision?
Please note: Book is first in a trilogy so ultimately I will need three covers. (This contest is only for the first cover!) Size is 6 x 9. ebook and print cover (front, back & spine). Web and print ready images. Front cover ready to be uploaded. Needs to be impact at thumbnail size. Book Title: Immurement Book Description: The earth’s core overheats. From Yellowstone to Sakurajima, thousands of cubic feet of magma spews into a summer sky. Ash plumes, miles high, incinerate most of the earth’s inhabitants. In a bunker system deep in the Salmon River Mountains, a small band of survivors form the Undergrounders; among them, sixteen-year-old Derry Connelly, and a young Septite homesteader, Jakob Miller, who stirs up feelings inside her she didn’t know were possible. When the Undergrounders dare to resurface, they encounter a bleak and dangerous new existence, terrorized by gangs of cutthroat Rogues, and the mysterious Sweepers who systematically target adolescents for extraction in ships that hover over the earth’s magnetic fields. Derry’s older brother, Owen, is one of the first to disappear. To save him from a fate more macabre than death itself, Derry must now become the leader she was destined to be and spawn a rebellion that strikes at the heart of the Sweepers’ operation.
This is a post-apocalyyptic novel at the intersection of science fiction and reality. Set in the backcountry of Idaho, the story will capture readers drawn to tales of survival, and the challenges of living in a wilderness where death prowls the land in myriad forms. I'm leaning toward having Derry Connolly on the front cover as a selling point, but open to all suggestions. She is a dark-haired, green-eyed wild Irish girl. Jakob is blond and the Rogues are self-explanatory! (see below)

And then… they selected a winner!
This is the second job I've done with Alexandre, "Portugal." This time I didn't do the contest--I knew I wanted Alexandre to do my second cover. He did not disappoint--it is exactly what I asked for and once again he used his expertise and creative eye to make things better than my original request. I also really love how it matches the first cover in a color/font scheme so it looks really professional. This was my first experience asking someone directly to do work and Alexandre was fast, professional, and a delight to work with. I can't recommend his services enough. He is really good at designing book covers!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
