A dying boy
A rebellious girl
History poised to repeat itself
Left for dead at the side of the road in an outlawed town, Nicholas is rescued by a human girl. Plagued by fevered dreams and a lethal illness, Nicholas doesn’t know what to make of her kindness. If she knew what he was, death would be a merciful gift.
Rose takes it upon herself to show the boy hospitality, despite her uncle Roland forbidding her from going near him. She survived the brutal sickness and knows exactly what their guest is going through—he needs a friend.
Roland stands to lose everything when he discovers what Nicholas is. Dire circumstances force Roland to turn the boy into a test subject. However, in coaxing an old flame into helping domesticate the beast, Roland ends up in a cruel experiment of his own.
As Rose and Nicholas grow closer, Roland’s decision to keep the boy’s identity a secret threatens to bring history full circle. Can Roland guard two hearts as he struggles to keep the boy and his future alive?
Fall into this whirlwind of forbidden love amidst harsh truths and harsher follies. Pick up a copy of Vermin today.
Try to stay away from images of people on the cover, they are rarely acceptable. If you put images of people on the cover, keep in mind the main characters are you (13 and 14). All images used must be attributed to the source for copyright verification.
Use copyrighted images without verifying they are free for commercial use
Ignore the submission guidelines on the image
Use old people or people wearing current styles of clothing - thing Tudor England for garb
Thoughts from the publisher:
I want a clean cover that conveys a clean romance between young people coming of age. Ideally, no images of people, but am open if they are well done and convey the idea behind the work.
This work takes place during winter, so a cold/cool temperature pallet should be used.
I am not averse to using the first letter of the series name on the cover.
Initial thoughts were a snow-covered field with an older home in the background and the letter V embossed on the front with snow collecting around it.
If you have a question, post it in the comments area. DO NOT TELL ME TO LOOK AT YOUR SUBMISSION IN THE COMMENTS AREA. Doing so is considered rude and that I don't watch the contest for entries. The contest is scanned twice daily and comments left for the submitting artists. Telling me to look at your submission is a fast track to getting rejected.
If accepted, you will be expected to supply the PSD file and all images separately for image search verification to check copyright.
