Ringkasan Peraduan

This is a Y/A Romantic Fantasy cover contest for Book One -- Vermin

The template is to be used in order to make a full cover. Your submission is judged not only on what you create but also on how well you follow instructions. Your submission must show the front and back laid out on the template. Do not submit a 3D cover or book mock-up. Submit the same flat file as the template or you run the chance of being rejected immediately. We need someone who knows how to follow instructions and this is the first test. Your submission must show where images are sourced for verification.

Title: VERMIN
Series: The Vermin Series Book One
Author: Ardin Patterson
Publisher: Love Knot Books
Genre: Romance / Fantasy
Age Level: Y/A (12 and up)

Front Tag:
A dying boy
A rebellious girl
History poised to repeat itself

Back Description:
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.

-------------Information--------------
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.

Do Not:
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.

    Hello, I think exporting an InDesign file would be than a Photoshop file, I was wondering if that would be okay?

    Remember, this is a Romance / Fantasy Y/A book with the main characters at the age of 14. We've rejected many submissions due to them not having this theme in them, and the only one that is liked to any degree does not have the romantic/fantasy feel like we are looking for. If you need to know what style to shoot for, look at the latest Y/A Romance/Fantasy novels out there like:

    Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson
    Once Upon a Broken Heart by Stephanie Garber
    Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiffvater
    Rule of Wolves by Leigh Bardugo
    The Cruel Prince by Holly Black
    Crier's War by Nina Varela
    Stone Cold Touch by Jennifer L. Armentrout
    Serpent Dove by Shelby Mahurin
    Rage and Ruin by Jennifer L. Armentrout

    Anything outside this will probably be rejected.

    I would like to participate, I could give you a very good art, but it is an art that requires time, and the contests are never sure... if you make a fixed contract, I would be grateful in the future to invite me. :)

    Remember, there is a bar code on the back of the book cover that cannot be covered up! It is called an ISBN and used by bookstores to keep track of inventory.
