A new independent publishing romance imprint.
What's your vision?
Book Title: Solace Island Author: Sara Flynn When Maggie’s fiancée and business partner of five years dumps her on the eve of their wedding, Maggie retreats to a small gulf island with her sister Eve, to lick her wounds. She has no interest in pursuing a romantic attachment with the grumpy, albeit, incredibly handsome, Luke Benson, who bakes bread and sells it at the Solace Island Saturday Market. Though sparks fly whenever he is near, she insists on maintaining as strictly friends policy. This works until attempts on Maggie’s life throw them into much closer quarters. Who wants Maggie dead? And how is it that a bread baker is so enormously wealthy and seems so well equipped to handle this deadly threat? Image-wise the suspense part of the book contains: night, mist, a cave Maggie tied to stake with the tide rising, the moonlit ocean, shadow-figures of hit men, pacific northwest topography, arbutus, Douglas fir. The hero, ex Special Forces, dark hair. The heroine, slender, long wavy auburn hair. You are free to use some/all/or none of these things.
Solace Island is the first novel our imprint is releasing. We plan to release between 2-3 novels a year and would like to form relationships that build and grow as we do. Solace Island is a contemporary romantic suspense novel. We would like the cover to be in the same vein as book covers by Nora Robert or Jayne Ann Krentz's romantic suspense covers (not their light and fluffy novels). However, if someone feels passionately about a different style approach we are happy to consider it. The majority of sales will be digital so we would like the cover to standout in thumbnail size. Not too complex when advertised on Amazon, but with enough interest so when readers purchase print books that it will still satisfy. We will be sending the novel with the cover you design out for reviews and would like the ability to have blurbs added at a later date.

Within the next 18 months, I will be a Certified EGCM equine coach, and I was looking for a logo design for Spirit Rising which would embody a horse, spirit, nature . . . GoldenLionDesign submitted a design, which was wonderful! I asked for a few modifications, and also asked for her suggestions on a color design in addition to the black and white design. Super creative on my logo and I LOVE IT!!! The logo is totally me, beautiful and I am so pleased with my design! Thanks so much, you are AWESOME!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
