nye.josh.9 got their new book cover by running a design contest:
need spooky cover art for my book, 'The Pact'. (no stock images, pls).
Check out nye.josh.9's Book cover contest…
Joshua Nye works as a respiratory therapist in Erie, PA. When not working, he enjoys writing, gardening, and drawing.
The Pact is about Virgil and his friends as they race to save the world from an otherworldly threat. As a child, Virgil was tricked into a deal as part of an ancient treaty that cut his life in half, but gave him control over spirits.
Older teens to people in their thirties. People who enjoy thrilling adventures and darker emotional stakes in stories. Fans of horror/thrillers and sci-fi.
What I have envisioned is a dark forest with an ominous green light silhouetting trees and a young man approaching the source of the light, a skull. I'd like it to set a dark and somewhat grim tone for the book. I'm okay with using minimalistic imagery and I'd like it to look pretty stylized. Show me your style!
What to avoid
Please, do not use stock images.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at €269.
