SI*CLARKE got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Book cover for neurodiverse, gender-bendy, drunken-arguments-in-the-pub science fiction
Check out SI*CLARKE's Book cover contest…
Shannon is a Canadian misanthrope who lives in Deptford, sarf ees London. She shares her home with her partner and an assortment of waifs and strays. As someone who’s neurodivergent, an immigrant, and the proud owner of an invisible disability, she strives to present a realistically diverse array of characters in her stories.
Having escaped Earth as a deadly pandemic took hold, autistic scientist Devon and her fellow colonists are hoping for a fresh start on Mars. Mars isn’t exactly hospitable to the newcomers, though. With the weight of loss hanging heavy on them, they must overcome their differences and find a way to survive as they adjust to life alone on a hostile planet. The group – 150 women and 10 men – are determined to get it right this time. Their society is peaceful and diverse. They accept one another’s differences and prioritise sustainability over short-term gain. Scarcity of resources means they can’t have fully automated luxury gay space communism – so they strive for partially automated social liberalism. But things aren’t always what they seem and maybe the colonists aren’t as alone as they thought.
My readers are science fiction fans. They tend to be socially liberal, LGBTQIA, autistic or otherwise neurodivergent. They see gender as a spectrum. Most importantly, they enjoy having their preconceptions challenged.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
SI*CLARKE collaborated with designers to refine their ideas

And then… they selected a winner!
Rej was fantastic. She got my design spot on and was always quick to respond to questions and queries. I have really enjoyed working with Rej and plan to use her again for my future books.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
