What's your vision?
URBAN FANTASY SERIES - ebook cover for the 1st book in a 5 book series. Into the Infernal follows Samantha (she prefers Sam), a former soldier, wounded in battle, into the world where everyone goes when they die. The Infernal is a place that looks just like Earth, only the customs and technology range from ancient to futuristic. It is also a place full of all sorts of dangerous creatures. Zombies, Werewolves, Angels, Vampires, etc. Sam is headed to New Orleans to find and say goodbye to the love of her life. One idea we had... BUT we'd be open to other suggestions!! We had envisioned her either walking or standing, on a road that leads to New Orleans... sign on the side that gives distance of 13 miles and warning that no angels are allowed beyond that point. She has a companion with her, a GIANT cat in the 40+ lb realm, but it looks exactly like a typical American Short Hair. Also, Sam is wearing a sundress (not as short as the one in the images I'm including) but has boots on... She carries a hand crossbow (not full size) and she has red/copper hair (like the girl in pic, by herself). It could be a highway shot as well... oak tree lined road works as well... We weren't sure if she and the cat should be looking back (at us) or just looking down the road?? Also, while we're providing all of this information, we'd be open to some other cool cover. This is the 1st book in a series of 5 novels. Title: Into the Infernal By: Laura & Daniel Martone We may add a tag at the bottom, not sure about this.
In addition to the rather poorly put together images I'm providing, the other major elements in the book series are... New Orleans, zombies, vampires, werewolves, angels, voodoo, magic. And since we're going to be releasing 5 novels in the series, perhaps the colors ought to range... a lot of Urban Fantasy seem to start in the blues and head toward the warmer colors in later books. Again, we'd be open to other ideas... just looking for a really cool cover to start this series off. With the finished product, we would like the PSD file so we can play with the placement / font in case we add a tagline, etc.

It all began with a design brief.

And then… they selected a winner!
Andrew is extremely talented. He has designed the covers for all four books in my Thomerion series of interactive novels and blown he away with his eye for detail, color sensibilities and dramatic style. Further, he is professional and a good communicator. Would hire again and again!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
