kadederricks got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Old West action adventure novel - Devlin's Return
Check out kadederricks's Book cover contest…
Carson McCloud is the author of multiple western adventure novels. He's lived in five western states and loves writing about the climate, the history, the people, and the spirit of the Old West.
The story takes place in the old west. Nate Devlin and his wife Teresa along with their son Finn own a ranch on the edge of the Ochoco mountains in southern Oregon near Prineville. The leader of a gang of bandits, who's brother was killed in the previous book, kidnaps Teresa and Finn and takes them into northern Nevada to draw Nate into a confrontation. Teresa's brother, Luke, accompanies Nate to rescue his sister and nephew.
Western readers are largely male, middle-aged or older, and mostly reside in the US.
Book cover type
The story takes place near the Black Rock Desert in Nevada during summer. This is a high altitude desert with sage and playa salt flats. I would prefer to emphasize the huge scale of the country relative to Nate and Luke as they search. I like the banded look with the banner on top and bottom. Title should be on top. Author name on bottom. Similar to previous books. With this being the second book of a series any way to link it to the previous from a branding perspective would help. https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=dp_byline_sr_ebooks_1?ie=UTF8&text=Carson+McCloud&search-alias=digital-text&field-author=Carson+McCloud&sort=relevancerank
What to avoid
This is not a romance book.
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.
kadederricks 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!
Charala has excellent creative ideas and careful attention to detail to bring everything together for a harmonious whole. She is skilled in bringing a design to life; very patient with the multitude of factors I wanted incorporated; and has mastered the technology. Highly recommended.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
