kasharossI got their new book cover by running a design contest:

Kasha Ross is a twenty-year-old poet and freelance writer born and raised in Victoria, British Columbia. She has recently relocated to Fredericton, New Brunswick, bought a Siberian Husky puppy and settled into a balance of writing and puppy training. She started writing stories and poetry when she was ten and began imagining Fragmented Soul at sixteen. As a person with dyslexia, reading and writing often feel like running a marathon and getting nowhere. However, escaping into the world of fiction has always been her comfort. Publishing a novel has been a long-standing dream, and with this publication has turned to reality. She is currently working on the sequel to Fragmented Soul.
When Mother Earth grew tired of giving her people chance after chance to right their wrongs, she resorted to her last hope and released a toxic gas into the atmosphere. She spared only her creations and killed over eight billion people. In a new society made up of just three cities and five towns, a tyrant claimed power. The initial hope swiftly dissolved into starvation and fear in a place built on greed, motivated by violence, and populated by those who wished for only a quick death. Thirty years later, Harley Hudson and her oldest and most devoted friend Jimmy, who battles demons of his own, are forced to face this world head-on when her younger brother is kidnapped by sinister Hunters linked to the ruling powers. They gather together an ill-equipped group for a poorly-planned rescue mission: a mad scientist with a gift for irritating the wrong people, a pickpocket, two ex-boyfriends, a stoic refugee, and the two leaders of the most dysfunctional gang in town. As they fight for their lives, they find themselves lost in a maze of their past, and secrets that reveal who they were always meant to be. Though reader, as you may know, sometimes remaining in the dark your whole life shatters fewer hearts and buries fewer bodies than finding out the truth.
Book cover type
I would like this cover to look professional and have a more illustrative tough — for example, the book Renegades, the new cover of Divergent, and Carry On. Trim size/cover size: 6”x9” Page number: 401-500 font-style: Gotham, Din, Hoefler
What to avoid
use of stoke imagery
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.

Alek did a fantastic job. My descriptions were sometimes vague, and I'll admit I'm a little indecisive on things, but he kept coming back with great options until we found the right fit. Very professional and always looking to make the cover better. Highly Recommended :)
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
