So I picked up colored pencils and drew a rose and flying petals.
That was one thing. (Also, the rights to the picture *are* mine.)
Then, another day, I needed stock for a cover while I brewed story ideas over. (Read: didn't feel like working.)
But I didn't have anything to play with but the rose. 'Eh,' I thought. 'What the hell?'
The problem is that this cover's too grown up for my story. Too light.
Of course, I love this thing to death but I don't write the kind of stories it wants.
And then I thought of my friend who complained about buying images or rights and everything in order to promote and sell her book. (She ended up not doing it.)
I know a lot of people feel the same way.
I thought of the cover and someone out there has to love it or need it or want it.
I won't feel bad if no one does (I'll get to keep it,) but I thought I should try.
So, here's what I'd like:
-if you think it's a good match for you, tell me
-no, you don't have to know me. You don't even have to like me.
-you don't have to follow or anything but you have to promote it. Who knows? I might see you looking out for others and fix a cover just for you.
-if you use it, tell me what the links are so I can put them on my blogs
-you can name me as the creator but only if you want to. Either way is cool with me.
-you don't have to be self-published or in the business to. But I'd really like it if you were. *bats lashes*
What else am I forgetting? Oh yeah, it IS a giveaway and some things are customized (frame on author pic, etc.) but I can't change the flow of it anymore.
And I do have another one (that I didn't make a jacket for.)
|deviantart hated this picture for some reason|
EDIT: you must comment to enter. Otherwise...how will I know? O.o
Also, someone made me realize that this isn't the first time I did book covers OR photography.
Here's where some of my photos are. And here are more things I made:
|The Internet's bizarre and did something to this one|
|Sorry for the bulky words. I screwed up.|
And yeah, I might just give you guys a cover for the heck of it. Though this time, it's purely giveaway. Next time I might just want to know what your book's about. :) (SO NOW'S YOUR CHANCE.)
