I am absolutely thrilled with the cover design and the ease of dealing with 99designs! I gave Paganus just a few thoughts on "Lizard," a character from my novel, and he hit the assignment out of the park! I needed just the right balance between showing a Satanist protagonist and conveying the message of "So Help Me God" that good will triumph over evil. Pagunus nailed it. In addition, he was very patient as I found a few of MY errors in the back cover text and he fixed all of them. Every aspect of the project was completely positive.

Hi. I'm looking for a book cover and someone who can ultimately illustrate the entire book after the contest. The title will be 'The Story of Miracle and Christmas Wonderland' The demographic will be 3 to 9. It is a book that the older side of the demographic will read on their own and the younger side will have their parents read to them. I need the cover to incorporate a white reindeer with blue eyes. The reindeer needs to be young, with smaller antlers. In human years, I would say the reindeer is equivalent to a 5-7 year old. I would also like to incorporate a small white polar bear. He's a nice little guy. Their is also a couple of elves that are brothers. Both elves are good elves in the beginning of the book, but one ends up naughty so maybe the naughty one should be reflected on the cover. Not too mean looking though. The elves are not elderly, but don't have to fall into a certain age category. No gray hair or facial hair for the elves though. Christmas Wonderland is a magical Christmas town. Please incorporate snow, Christmas lights and buildings or homes or structures that would exist in a make believe Christmas town. In the story there is a popcorn factory, a chocolate factory a bakery etc... There is a book you can refer to called Snowmen at Christmas (I've included a picture). I like the coloring of that cover. We are going for a bright but warm look. Very Christmas like!! Please make it look like something you'd sit by a fire and read to kids around the holidays. Again, we are looking for a long term relationship to produce a series of books. I'll do the best I can at giving feedback!! Please make the size in or around 9"x13". Please try to incorporate old fashioned street lamps also. The final size will be determined once the contest is over. Thanks!
Thanks for your time in considering our project and I will try and answer any questions you might have. Hi guys. Please add to the cover:
