Cover for Gothic horror set in a circus

Come One, Come All
Elizabeth Gilliland mostly believes in ghosts and other supernatural spooks, but she has a standing agreement with them to keep a respectful distance. When she isn’t writing, she is most likely sneaking classic Gothic novels into her class curriculum, or arguing why we need to value adaptations as art. She is also the author of the Austen University Mysteries, and she lives in Alabama with her husband and son.
The Pied Piper Circus lures in the lost, the lonely, people who wish to be stronger or faster or prettier…but once you join, you can never leave. Louisa knows the dangers of the traveling carnival, but she cannot afford to stay away. Not if she wants to get rid of the white owl that’s been haunting her, invading her dreams. Not if she wants to know about the dark, sinister mark in her eyes that convinces people to follow her every whim, no matter how terrible. Not when she fears what she might do with that power. Ringmaster Amos Cain has the answers Louisa seeks, but like everything else in the Pied Piper Circus, they won’t come without a price. And there’s something hungry living in the heart of the carnival that will never be satiated, no matter how many lost souls She consumes.

And then… they selected a winner!
I’m so fortunate to have come across Milan for my first project. Milan was very accommodating, adaptive, and made outstanding adjustments from simple feedback. From the early book cover concept, Milan captured the essence of the story in the design and carried that through into the final product in a timely fashion. I’m appreciative of the continued support, proud of the final cover, and eager to work with them again.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
