mjchapmb got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Create a Global Identity for an Arabesque Epic Fantasy
Check out mjchapmb's Book cover contest…
A Dull Red Glow (Vol. 1 of the Four Faces Lost series)
MG is a bard looking to tell an epic tale to the world. Fantasy enthusiast, dungeon master, guitar toting songwriter.
She arrived in the City wreathed in flame and cradled by destruction. Body ruined, memory lost, but alive. Now Riva Tukimo will find that ones that hunt her will stop at nothing to discover the secret of her survival. Lots of adventuring through weird cities, moroccan-ish settings, jungles, deserts, mountains, and lots of magic along the way. Yes there is a school of magic and a militant government. Yes there are magic ruins and hidden temples. Yes there are romantic subplots
Young adult and new adult, progressive, biased towards female audiences
Other color requirements
The colors selected will also form the color palette for the website, so making sure that one is selected can be used for web is important. This I can easily test since I already have a website running.
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.
mjchapmb 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.
Recently completed contests:
Children 3-6 years, parents, grandparents, teachers
Hopefully a pretty broad American audience; definitely adults 18+. People into psychological thrillers. It is not gory
Young adults (12 - 30 year olds).
Mature readers, particularly female readers. Fans of Rosie Thomas (The Illusionists, The Kashmir Shawl) may enjoy this
