AliciaA got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Book Cover Design for Chic Lit Romance Book
Check out AliciaA's Book cover contest…
Art & Design
About me: I am an author of romance books, in particular chic lit. The characteristics of chic lit include: - character’s who are in their late 20's to early 30's woman - the character is career orientated - the character must overcome an obstacle in their life or career - the book must include an element of humour/comedy - main character is usually incredibly stunning and gorgeous - as part of the romance category, sex is referred to but this is not erotica – this is a romance book though (this genre can broad brush sex and not be too detailed) - most importantly the main character falls in love, and most secondary characters fall in love with someone too - the book must have a happy ending - usually involves one of the big, exciting cities in the world (often London and New York possibly Paris or Milan ) So, if I was writing for movies, I suppose I'd call the book a romantic comedy. Information About The Book For This Book Cover Contest: The book is about a pretty, 29 year old, go-getter advertising executive working during the difficult London financial crisis where every second person is losing their job. When her largest client who owns a swimming centre and chain of pools, finds out she can't swim – what will she do? Will she step up to the challenge, learn to swim and keep or job, or will she try to resolve her dilemma in another way? The book focuses on the main character learning how to swim (and learning about herself) as well as falling in love. Love of course is the most important element for romance. There is a sexy spin to the book and it's called 'Skinny Dipping'. The Target Market This is a light, fun book with a sexy element. It is a book a woman might buy to take to the beach, relax, nothing to serious but pure escapism.
What's your vision?
I require an exciting book cover to help make this romantic comedy book become a best seller. The purpose of the book is to be sold on Amazon Kindle and Create Space. Knowledge of Create Space requirements are of course a plus, but I have included the CS and specific requirements in an attachment. I would require the PSDs and source files just in case the blurb changes or the spine needs adjusting. Please review the attached document with details of the information needed for the front, back and spine. Thanks!!
Please review the attached files. I hope they help and I look forward to working with you.

Nelly did a great job of understanding my vision and translating each story into a compelling cover. She was professional, easy to work wit,h and made the process painless. Bonus that she is a lovely person. Would highly recommend her.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
