Check out aje23Q's Book cover contest…
Affairs of the Dead
I'm your typical over-caffeinated writer with too many ideas and not enough time to do all of them. I write poetry and urban fantasy novels, and spend my days reading, writing and doing art all day. Not really, but a girl can dream. I'm an island girl at heart, originally from Trinidad & Tobago, but now make my home in NYC with my daughter.
"Help ghosts, stop a thief, and try not to die..." Necromancer Selene Vanream helps ghosts settle their affairs so they can move on. But when breaking the rules gets her in trouble, she's bumped down to tracking ghosts trying to avoid the afterlife. Ghosts like Ethan Lance, who claims he was kicked out of his body when someone else jumped in. Which might be plausible--if such a thing were possible. And if Micah, Selene's partner, didn't pull her into an investigation of brutal murders that lead directly back to Ethan. But when the whole mess puts Selene's life in danger, she suddenly has very personal reasons to get Ethan's body back. Between her uncomfortable relationship with Micah, and problems with her boss, Selene learns just how much trouble it can be when you don't follow the rules...
I would like a female model superimposed over a graveyard background. Dark colors, night time setting. I have a stock photo model in mind, she is holding a skull and I would like some aging done to the skull. I would also like the model's hair swapped for curlier hair and have sourced stock model hair that can be used. I'd also like the model's dress color to be changed to dark blue or dark purple and the colors on the buttons and belt darkened as well. I would love a really bold, eye catching font for the title that aligns well with an urban fantasy novel. This cover is for a book that was previously published, but before I publish it again I need to make a new cover. There are four books and I would love to find someone I can work with to make new covers for all four. I can provide a photo of the old cover for reference.
What to avoid
I can't think of anything that needs to be strictly avoided. All should be well as long as the designs fall within what I've outlined.
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.
aje23Q collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
