I'm a self-publishing author that writes fiction. My target audience for this project is epic fantasy lovers all over the world.
What's your vision?
I am preparing to self-publish a 2nd edition of my 1st novel and this time I would like to go for a professional cover for my book which will be available both as an ebook and in print. The story revolves around an 18 year old boy, who through his dreams travels to a new fictional world called ENDËRLAND, a world full of wonder and magic, where life is eternal and evil is absent. Aside from humans, this world is inhabited also by mermaids, - one of whom becomes his best friend, - and wingmen, tall and slender humanoid creatures with wings and claws. His arrival in this new world triggers events that lead to the culmination of a long planned coup from an evil lord to take over ENDËRLAND and threatens to destroy the kingdom and life as they all know it. In order to stop this from happening, the boy sets on a quest that will not only help him avoid the total destruction of this new and wonderful world, but also discover himself and who he is. The journey is filled with adventures and creatures such as dragons and werewolves and culminates in an epic battle between the people of ENDËRLAND and the armies of the evil lord. The book will have a print format of 6"x9" and contains at least 400 pages. The main character loves the sea and this was something I wanted to include in my cover. He also falls in love with a beautiful girl he meets in this new world, a girl who during the night serves as the moon over the kingdom, while her twin brother serves as the sun during the day. The moon is also a very important part that I would love to be included in the cover. The very amateurish cover that I first created for the novel can give you a rough idea of what I like, but you can be as creative as you can. Also, for illustrating purposes, in the story, the wingmen are described as tall and slender, with large wings dominantly white on the outside, and blue and/or grey underneath/inside. They are supposed to be quite big/long as to be able to support the full body weight. They have long black hair tied back in a single braid and their fingers end up in long-ish claws, instead of nails. The mermaids have vivid red hair and pale white tone of skin, while their lower half (the scaly tail) is blue, like the ocean. They are all female with the exception of the supporting character, who is the only living merman, or rather mer-boy, seemingly of 15 years of age. As for the main character, he is 18, with dark features, a handsome face and dark wavy, healthy hair, not too long.
The book is titled: ENDËRLAND, which is the name of the series. This will be the first one, called: Book of Daniel. The second one in the series will be called: Book of Serena and there will be a third one after that, as yet untitled. If I love your cover, I will definitely use you for the next two books and probably other projects I'm working on. Thank you!

Erika was a pleasure to work with. She was responsive to my design ideas and did a great job interpreting my thoughts into a final design. Her knowledge of what went into a good book cover design was confirmed when I shared her ideas with a designer friend who called it one of the best book covers he'd ever seen! I will use her services again!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
