Here's Your Contest!!!!
(Above: New covers of classic novels by Ruben Toledo.)
Lots of great ideas! Thanks, guys. But as I was reading the suggestions, I happened to stumble upon this article in the New York Times about "Book Covers That Got Away." As many of you know, we've gone through a few different covers for The Eternal Ones series. I love the cover of All You Desire, but who knows? Maybe there's an even BETTER cover idea that's stuck somewhere in a blog reader's brain!
So, here's the contest. Design an alternate cover for All You Desire. You don't have to draw it. You can use a photo, scrap art, typography, collage, needlepoint . . . just about anything. (The NYT article linked to above shows a range of different possibilities.) The cover must convey the following:
1. That it's a dark, twisted romance
2. That it's for a teen and adult audience
3. That it's part of a series
(I almost required that you make use of the ouroboros. But I'm going to leave that decision up to you.)
Entries will be judged on their creativity and how well they fit the book!
All entries must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by 11:59 PM, MAY 31ST!
