JB Lucas got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Design me a book cover for a historical thriller
Check out JB Lucas's Book cover contest…
JB has lived and studied in eight different countries so far, scattered across Europe, East Africa and Latin America. Passionate about high level politics, he studied the inner workings of the European Union as an undergrad with a view to eventually working in the arena of international border disputes. Although his career has (obviously) taken a rather different route, he is now writing about the obsession which has captivated him his entire life - the tectonic movements of states.
The book is the first of a series with an iconic central protagonist. He is both spymaster and "chief detective" of an empire based upon Ancient Rome. The first of the trilogy is already published on Amazon (Loreticus by JB Lucas), with another 3-4 coming out this year.

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.
JB Lucas collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Working with Virtually Possible was such a wonderful experience! Communication was amazing, and she was very flexible and open as we collaborated on my book cover. Her ability to transform my vision into a work of art was incredible. I highly recommend her, and look forward to working with her again for my next book.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
