Check out daveandthedeao's Book cover contest…
David J. Gatward
David J. Gatward lives in Somerset and is the award-winning author of the DCI Harry Grimm crime novels. He has also written numerous books for children, teenagers and young adults. You can find out more at facebook.com/davidjgatwardauthor
With good friends, a new romance, and now even his own dog, DCI Harry Grimm’s new life in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales seems too good to be true. So, when the mangled body of a local farmer is found in a hay baler, and one of his own team is beaten half to death, he realises that perhaps it is. In a place that prides itself on the warmth of its welcome, Harry and his team are about to discover just how cold things can get. Because some people are more welcome than others and the hills can hide the darkest of sins.
Mainly women aged 32+ (I have readers in their 80s), mostly UK, though worldwide readership.

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.
daveandthedeao 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!
Alifian Saptura was great to work with! Each change needed was delivered in a timely fashion and we are very satisfied with the final product. Would recommend!
