CraigscoplanI got their new book cover by running a design contest:
New Sherlock Holmes Mysteries
Check out CraigscoplanI's Book cover contest…
Sherlock Holmes Never Dies
Craig Stephen Copland
Craig Stephen Copland is a dedicated Sherlockian who is on a mission to write a New Sherlock Holmes Mystery as a tribute to each of the sixty original stories in The Canon.
This book will serve as an introduction and 'lead magnet' for the series of New Sherlock Holmes Mysteries. In you readers will find six new Sherlock Holmes stories that take us back to London in Victorian times and the adventures of the world's greatest detective.
Men and women, English speaking, ages 35+. Above average education. Enthusiastic readers. In addition to reading Sherlock Holmes stories, they would also enjoy historical mysteries, crime fiction and (some of them) cozy mysteries. Mostly in the US, followed by the UK and Canada.
The sole use of the book will be as a lead magnet. This book cover will be advertised on Facebook and other social media. As a lead magnet, it will always be free. The sole purpose is to get the reader to click, go to my squeeze page, download the free book in return for giving me a name and email address. The dimensions can be altered if a different shape or presentation is considered more effective in drawing clicks.
What to avoid
The cover should look similar to the best covers currently on the Amazon best-sellers page for Historical Fiction. Also check out the most popular entries under 'Sherlock Holmes pastiche.' Also see my website for books already available in the series. www.SherlockHolmesMystery.com. Attached files are covers previously prepared, but I am looking for something more irresistible and scroll-stopping.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at $299.
Full copyright with production-ready files for digital and/or print.
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.
CraigscoplanI 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 2 winners!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
