Check out cmarquez2450's Book cover contest…
The Serpent's Daughter
After winning the Women's Division I Basketball Championship, Sasi Avias suddenly finds herself in a strange realm that is threatened by a dark force. Could she be the descendant of the Goddess from the prophecy to save this realm and her own?
Book cover type
Don’t know yet
The book is centered around a college aged girl who is discovering more about herself and her linage when she is forced to save the world from a portal opening from another realm. The girl does have powers and can shoot fire from her hands so in my mind I was envisioning her on the front cover with her powers showcased and a blue portal in the background. I also had envisioned a snake in the background or next to her. I am open to any idea though as well. The girl is would have light brown skin and brown hair if wanting to use a character on the front of the book. Her eyes glow blue occasionally in the book as well. I am planning to have all files as well for digital/print since I am going to publish on multiple websites and in different formats such as print, hardcover, ebook, and ACX. Print cover: 5 x 8 Hardcover: 6 x 9.
What to avoid
N/A. I am open to any design you may have!
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.
cmarquez2450 collaborated with designers to refine their ideas

And then… they selected a winner!
Cesar has a very quick turn around. I wanted to have a jacket cover and an audiobook cover. He did it perfectly and communicated with me quickly. I highly recommend him for your project!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
