The Art of Lying
Duke C. Cullinan
Duke C. Cullinan lived through a lot of this, did some of it, witnessed more, and made all of it up. He lives in a 100-year-old house in Southern California, and until The Art of Lying becomes a bestseller, he will continue to pay the bills as a waiter. At which point he will move to Las Vegas and spend the rest of his life drinking martinis, smoking cigars, and winning at Baccarat.
Is it better to coast through with nothing, or f*%@ up royally with abundance? It’s 1997 in Los Angeles, and 31-year-old Max hasn’t been laid the entire decade. But things change dramatically. Will he be able to manage his fortune?
Adults, waiters, restaurant people, people age 45-70, singles, literary readers, critics, southern Californians, book bloggers.
Book cover type
This is literary fiction, but not too serious. Many comical situations in the novel. See sample cover image included. Box with title should be a little larger and more dramatic. Need to have good clean illustrations of characters (but of a young man) like in the sample. Character illustrations extend to back cover, but leave room for a blurb. Fresh but not too-bright colors.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at $399.
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.
dukecullinan 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.

And then… they selected a winner!
My podcast art is perfect. It is unique and on-brand. Great ideas came from this designer. Fast to respond and good integration of my suggestions.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
