swade2569 got their new book cover by running a design contest:
A compelling and inspirational self-help book cover.
Check out swade2569's Book cover contest…
My book is intended to be a guide for busy individuals who are feeling stuck in a rut, unfulfilled, and want to look within themselves for the answers which will lead to a satisfying life.
What's your vision?
I'd like a design that evokes the feelings of: having an understanding about how they fit into the world, a satisfying life, clarity and purpose. I need a full book cover, in four formats: PDF, paper back, kindle (epub format) and Audible (following the format suggestions of ACX.COM). Having the source image that I can crop and use for social media and other promotional uses as well.
I prefer photographs over illustrations, light over dark, a blue accent or background, and a person should be in the photograph. I started a website that has some more information about the book and some EARLY graphic concepts (mostly the background): http://personalretreat.training

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.
swade2569 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!
Very quick turnaround on all requested changes. I ran a poll, and this design beat several extremely talented people. I'm happy with the deliverables.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
