TITLE: MEG SUBTITLE: Nightstalkers AUTHOR NAME: Steve Alten DIMENSIONS: 6" x 9" BOOK SUBJECT MATTER: Science Fiction/Thriller REAR PLACEMENT: Author picture, bio, book description, and Rebel Press logo are attached for rear cover placement. BOOK DESCRIPTION: MEG is BACK! Carcharodon megalodon: Apex predator of all time, the most fearsome creature that ever lived – a 70 foot, 70,000 pound prehistoric Great White shark. Hundreds of 7-inch teeth filled a jaw that could swallow an elephant whole, driven by senses that could detect prey from miles away. And if you ever came close enough to see one of these monstrous sharks...God help you. In this fifth (and final?) installment of the best-selling MEG series, Nightstalkers picks up where MEG: Hell’s Aquarium left off. Bela and Lizzy, the dominant Megalodon siblings from Angel’s brood have escaped the Tanaka Institute to inhabit the Salish Sea in British Columbia. While Jonas Taylor and his friend Mac attempt to either recapture or kill the “sisters,” Jonas’s son, David embarks on his own adventure, motivated by revenge. Having witnessed his girlfriend’s gruesome death, David has joined the Dubai Prince’s ocean expedition which is tracking the 120-foot, hundred ton Liopleurodon that escaped from the Panthalassa Sea. Haunted by night terrors, David repeatedly risks his life to lure the Lio and other prehistoric sea creatures into the fleet’s nets, all while battling his own suicidal demons. Steve Alten weaves these storylines together in a page-turning thriller which culminates in a final showdown between the most dangerous predators ever to inhabit the planet.

It all began with a design brief.

Next Century Pub collaborated with designers to refine their ideas

And then… they selected a winner!
Another great experience & result working with Mario Lampic!
His designs for my novel series, THE SECRET SEX LIFE OF ANGELS, are stunning! We just finished SSLA IV "Realm of the Gods" and I couldn't be happier.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
