Update: I've gotten a few messages requesting that the contest be extended. I am working on doing so. Update #2 14/03: There have been a number of variations on a specific theme. While I feel that what I've gotten so far has been amazing, I encourage any additional designers to take some chances. Update #3 14/03: Referencing the thought above: the Earth actually explodes in blue fire. Title: Last Mage: The Interview Author: Andrew Eckhart Dimensions: approximately 2500p X 1500p Hello, my name is Andrew Eckhart, author of the Last Mage Trilogy which tells the tale of an immortal man who has been guiding and protecting humanity since the beginning of time. Obviously a modern Sci fi /fantasy tale. There is currently one book available with the next scheduled for October. The current cover is available in amazon searching for my name. The initial idea was to emphasize that this was a serious urban Sci fi story. The protagonist grapples with philosophy and responsibility and the nature of what it is to be human. I would like something that makes it clear that the world is on his shoulders and more in keeping with the genre. The main protagonist is of North African origin, as if he had been a part of early human culture, and is just starting to go grey. A major plot device in the novel are called towers. They look much like a pawn chess piece made in white stone. Also, a big part of the book revolves around the destruction of the planet in blue fire/energy. If you feel inspired, have at that. Additionally the main antagonist is a shadowy woman of similar ethnicity. She is a master tactician and has been manipulating the Mage from her exile for centuries. A major color for the first novel is blue. If you have any questions feel free to let me know. I look forward to seeing your submissions. Andrew

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.
