I have written a fiction novel and need a great cover for it before it can be published. My graphic design skill is not even remotely close to professional-level, I have no particular vision regarding the cover's design, and I have no idea how the lettering should look, so you are welcome to get as creative as you like as long as it meets the requirements for the Smashwords Style Guide (specifically step 23 regarding ebook covers). For convenience, the guide is provided below as one of the included files.
The story is the first chapter of an episodic series of books my best friend and I have been developing for about ten years. This book in particular is a dramedy about a young man in an insane asylum and his struggle to understand himself in a world that doesn't understand him. The monotony of his life is broken when a large, angry man claiming to be from the future is admitted to the facility. Through this man's rantings of honor and contractions our protagonist with find the courage he needs to take charge of his life find the pride in himself he never knew he had.
Files included with this contest:
+Some character sketches so that you know definitively what some of the main characters look like (see note at the end for details)
+The first three chapters of the story in .doc format, so that you can get a feel for the narrative style as well as the personalities of the characters
+The first three chapters in .rtf format, just in case you're using a computer from 1998 and have absolutely no access to a doc reader whatsoever (and yes, I have encountered this within the past five years)
+Smashwords Style Guide
I'm sorry that I don't have much money to offer for the prize. I'm a broke college student working two jobs to get by, so my budget truly is limited. However, not only will the winner received prize, I will also provide the entire rest of the story for you to read. Because I value consistency, I will also offer the winner first dibs on designing the cover for future Baron Syndicate books. Thank you for all of your time and good luck!
NOTE: I apologize for the inconvenience, but not all of the pictures are accurate regarding the mask's appearance. Use mask scribble [url removed, login to view] as a proper, 100% accurate reference for the physical appearance and colors of the mask. color [url removed, login to view] is another color reference, higher quality. stupor c26 [url removed, login to view] is a quick sketch and accurate to the physical appearance of all three characters depicted within.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Thanks again, and good luck!
