Check out cleoshop's Book cover contest…
I have physical limitations and have dysarthria. From an early age, I endured sexual abuse, arrogance and ignorant discrimination against me. To cushion myself against the judgements of other people, I protected myself by creating an invisible shield around me. I could not relate to anyone and felt very lonely and isolated. In my adolescent years, I accidentally discovered I could write poems. I started writing poetry as a way to express myself without struggling to get the words out. My thoughts could now be heard as my flawless voice, and I could speak without embarrassment. I felt and still feel “free” when writing poetry and I found my perfect voice. My poetry reflects my responses to harmful experiences, unfair decision-making and the struggles of romantic relationships for a physically challenged woman. My struggles are not unlike physically-abled women except they are amplified by my increased vulnerability. I think you will find my poetry easy reading expressing with words the emotions of the highs and lows of life.
Cleo Patra is an indie writer who happens to be physically limited and has Dysarthria. Her book, Raped-Love, is her debut in the poetry genre. Her poetry reflects her responses to life experiences, indifferent decision-making and the struggles of romantic relationships for a physically limited woman. Her struggles are not unlike physically-abled women except they are amplified by her increased vulnerability. Cleo Patra hopes the reader will find her poetry easy reading; expressing with words the emotions of the highs and lows of life.
Readers who enjoy reading poetry. Age 16+. Gender; mostly females. Location; globe. Anyone who experienced mental health issues and trauma in the past.
Background; Australian Outback. (Photo attached). Image. A female heart (photo attached) sitting in her wheelchair in the centre of the Australian Outback. It’s all bare around her. Her arms & legs are tied to her wheelchair. Tears are rolling down her cheeks. She’s facing the reader. She’s being raped by an able-body male heart. (I require the cover to be confronting, but not offending). The font style (which includes the title, subtitle and the author's name) will be Sans-serif. The title should be capitalised and centre-aligned. The size will be between 16-18. For the subtitle (which should be direct underneath the title, but not obstructing the imagery) a more subdued 13-14 font size will be preferable. The author's name and illustrator's name shall be underneath the imagery. The recommendable size between 11-13 please. The style of the imagery must be descriptive. I want the reader to know what my ebook is all about. The font colors should be bright on (if possible) a light background.

My design was very complex and before I found DigitalGene I couldn't get any designer to assist me. DigitalGene thought outside the box and provided me with a design which would compliment my book for a lifetime. I will definitely recommend DigitalGene to any customer and will utilise the service in the future again.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
