I am a science fiction romance author. I am writing a series of interconnected novels set in the Solar system three hundred years in the future. My target audience is women mainly, but also men, ages 18 to 49, who enjoy reading romance and science fiction novels in ebook format.
What's your vision?
This project is an opportunity for artists to display their technical skill with photoshop. I am looking for a very specific design for the cover of my new science fiction romance novel, Game of the Red King. This is the third book in my ongoing series, and so it needs to adhere to the design format of the previous two novels in order to maintain brand and series continuity. I have included pictures of my first two books below. Or, visit my website to see my books at http://www.jaelwye.net/#!books/cnec As in the other books, the new cover should be divided into two sections by a black bar containing the title, Game of the Red King, and the series title, Once Upon A Red World. The author name, Jael Wye, should be in a black bar at the bottom. The font and sizing for the text should be the same as in the other books. In the book title the words 'Red King' should be larger and in red and 'Game Of The' should be smaller and in white. The series title and author name should be in light gray. A thin red line should separate the book and series titles. One of the two sections should contain a picture of the hero and heroine together in either a romantic or an action pose. The clothing should be either indistinct, futuristic, or tastefully absent. The hero is caucasian, with fair skin and hair and blue eyes. The heroine is of Indian descent, with dark skin, black hair and brown eyes. The background should be a futuristic interior, since most of the action takes place inside space ships and space stations. The second section should contain a realistic looking spaceship or space station against a star field, possibly with a slice of the moon or Mars. A coherent color scheme of blues and reds should be maintained in both sections. This is an ebook only cover, so spine and back cover design are not needed at this time. The cover should conform to industry standard dimensions for ebooks.
I have several more books planned in this series, and I hope to approach the winning designer for more covers in the future. Thank you in advance for your efforts.

Tremendously talented and responsive designer. The first cover he did was good but not exactly what I was looking for; within a day, he was back with a different cover, taking into account my comments, and it took my breath away. I cannot wait to upload it to my book.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
