My name is Aly Clark and I'm about to launch my debut novel, "Kingdom of the New Moon." It's a YA portal fantasy about a race of aquatic humanoids, and I need a creative, somewhat dark book cover to help get this book noticed! I will give more specific details about what I'm looking for to whatever kind souls respond to this thread.
The perks for helping? Acknowledgement forever by name in my book, along with a URL link back to your gallery on the website of your choosing, and my eternal gratitude. Also, a feature on my author blog. We can discuss a coffee budget as well.
If this turns into a contest of sorts, I am also willing to offer promotion perks to those who participate, but whose art I do not choose for the book cover itself. All participants' art will be featured on my blog and perhaps displayed in a poll for my readers/launch team to help me decide a winner.
Let's face it. I'm a starving artist, though of a slightly different variety, but I would love to promote other artists' work to the utmost of my ability. Your art will be the first thing my readers see and will help them determine whether or not to even pick up my book, so to say your art makes or breaks mine would be an understatement.
My launch date as of right now is December 15. A tentative deadline for cover art submissions of October 15 is what we're looking at here.
I truly appreciate the time of anyone who reads and/or responds to this thread, and I'm looking forward to working with fellow artists to make my publishing dream come true.
