EstherArcherLakhani got their new book cover by running a design contest:
"Mystical, magical, creepy, funny..." An out-of-this-world YA fantasy/sci fi
Check out EstherArcherLakhani's Book cover contest…
Esther Archer Lakhani
Her job is to keep their secrets safe. A secluded Retreat Center full of preternatural clientele. A talking crow who thinks she knows everything. A new boy in town asking a lot of nosy questions. Sound like a lot to handle? Not for fifteen-year-old Macy Steward, who lives at the Center and helps her parents run the highly unusual retreats. For Macy, this is simply normal routine. And it’s all going exactly as expected, that is until the guests become dangerously unpredictable, the talking crow goes suspiciously missing, and the new boy turns out to be so much more than he first appeared. “Here comes trouble.” That’s the last thing the crow says before disappearing. Even though she doesn’t scare easily, Macy has to admit the crow was right. Because soon enough, she finds herself trying to keep a lot more things safe than just secrets...
Tweens and teens who like funny, action-driven fantasy/sci fi. Any adult who enjoys the same.
Book cover type
This is an early YA focused on adventure and action rather than moods or heavy romance. It's a fast, funny Space Fantasy with all the action taking place on Earth (specifically Redwood Forest on California Coast). The cover should reflect both Space and earthiness with a contemporary magical feel. Protagonist is spunky and level-headed. I am wide open to illustration styles, with a focus on matching genre trend.
What to avoid
Nothing too sexy, as this primarily an adventure book a 12-year-old could enjoy. No cities, as main setting is deep in a redwood forest. No moon, or anything that hints of paranormal vampire/werewolf.
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
EstherArcherLakhani collaborated with designers to refine their ideas

We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
