6375mI got their new book cover by running a design contest:
First of a 2-book coming-of-age set London 1768 - literary, but in a hell of a fun era

Hugh: A Hero without a Novel
A native of the American Southwest, I have spent much of my life in Great Britain, France, and Finland. I now live in the American Northwest - Helena, Montana - with my Finnish partner. By day I love hiking under the Big Sky of my beautiful adopted state. By night, however, I prefer editing lost manuscripts and wandering the dark byways of 18th century London…
'Hugh' is a lively historical romp, a coming-of-age about the life, times, and blackmail of a young gay man in 1768 England. The tone is literary (my aim is to immerse the reader in the customs, politics, and societal norms of 1768) but my approach is humorous. This is not a heavy read. This is Book 1 of a two-book project.
Primarily 18+/women/gay men. Also any readers of humorous historical fiction. These novels often cross into magical realism: 'Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell', '100 Years of Solitude', or the novels of Natasha Pulley. 'Hugh' is not magical realism, but for a cover this approach is entirely appropriate.
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.
6375mI 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.
