I am looking for a beautiful cover design for our short stories, novellas and series. The designer should have a excellent grasp of typography. The cover should be high resolution (300 dpi) and be delivered in jpg, psd and pdf for digital and print. (I think that Amazon specs are 2333 X 3500) - I am looking to find my 'go to' designer for my bear shifter clean romance with a sports twist. These stories have more than a little drama. This cover will be for the third story in the series -- the winner will have the opportunity to design the covers for the first two stories in this series.
OK...some specifics - there are to be no crosses on the cover or anything erotic (like pubic hair). Since this is a male lead, it should have a male and a bear on the cover to indicate the sub genre (bear shifter).
The first cover to be awarded here is called Legacy by Clair Wynd - it is Book 3 of the Montana Bears series. It is fiction, not fantasy, and the ages of the readers are 20-55. I would like a bear and an athletic, attractive straight male to be on the cover. Preferably he is caucasian.
The story is about a person coming to grips with being a bear shifter and protecting tribal lands against an ancient evil. There are no witches, werewolves, vampires but there are what you'd have in a setting in Montana.
However, you are the artist ~ so show me your wares.
I anticipate this will be awarded within the next 5-7 day, sooner if I see a design I like. My last contest was awarded in less than 48 hours. Anticipate the rest of the series will be 1 to 1 projects.
I work actively with creatives to solidify the concept as quickly as possible. I may award more than one winner, if I see work that can be used for another series or solo stories. Right now, I have 5 covers needed, 3 are in this series. Plus I have 2 other series in a different genre. So...I am looking for a go-to designer.
I anticipate initiating a second project within the next 48 hours - different story framework. So watch for it.
Note: the award for this project is already in escrow
