Veteran Hollywood screenwriter is novelizing the screenplays for his upcoming feature films.
What's your vision?
I need a cover for "ROOM 502" my new mystery/romance/thriller that will be the first novel in a trilogy, all three of which will eventually be made into feature films.
For 30 years, I've been a produced screenwriter so book covers that resemble movie posters have always appealed to me. ROOM 502 is first in a trilogy and I have mocked up three covers for the series to get your creative juices flowing. ROOM 502 takes place in Venice, Italy, ROOM 503 in Paris, ROOM 504 in San Francisco. In 502. Please leave space for two reviewers quotes on the rear cover followed by the description. Description follows: JACK SANDS, a magnetic, world renowned investigator of stolen art is staying in Room 502, his favorite room in a legendary Venetian hotel, to contemplate the end of his broken marriage. Jack lingers well past his check out time to watch the majestic sunset when he's startled by a beautiful Italian heiress checking in to the same room. She invites him to stay for a drink, Room 502 works its magic, and they find themselves entwined in an electric whirlwind of sensual passion that leaves them both hungry for more. As Jack leaves to settle things with his wife, he vows to return in two days and when he does, the macabre, twisted nightmare that awaits him in that room will shatter his life forever. Confronted with a body on fire on 502's terrace and the unfathomable disappearance of the heiress, Jack is thrust headlong into the haunting netherworld that is Venice during Carnival time, where masks, madness and erotica conceal a secret so unthinkable, the entire city seems willing to kill him before he can reveal it. Note: Winning designer must agree to give me their PSD or Illustrator file so I can edit/add description or quote text to the final design. This will save us both a lot of time. Also, please leave space for an ISBN bar code on the back, I can provide the ISBN when needed. Thank you all for the courtesy of responding to this proposal!

And then… they selected a winner!
It was a pleasure working with Kristin and I intend to use her for my book covers going forward. I loved her concept, the way she portrayed my character, the background and the care she took to make sure that the branding of this cover was consistent with previous ones, done by my publisher's now retired cover artist. She was prompt in making changes and open to suggestion. I'm looking forward to a continued professional relationship.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
