First of all let me start by saying the response to my contest was way more then I expected. I had tried to find someone locally to do the cover but there were no takers. I watched a how to video on you tube and 99D was mentioned and the rest is history. Working with buzzart turned out to be very easy. If I didn't know better you would think he had read my book because the design he came up with looks like a scene right from the story. If my book does well I have ideas for 2 more covers and I know who's going to do them.
Thoughtful and dedicated.
Very professional and accomodating.
Tudor did a great job on our project. His design was awesome to begin with, but he was also very responsive and made some changes for us.

A series of Adult Fiction novels, strong plot, self help and some romance.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
Please refer to the detailed descriptions in the PDF. Production of a landscape image to become the signature illustration of this series, including website and cover art.
Included in the PDF are all descriptions of the landscape in the book, as well as a lot of detail on dimensions, blend zones etc.
Please read the information in the PDF carefully, as submissions not matching the descriptions therein cannot be accepted or considered. Test readers have formed quite consistent imagery of the described island and it is this topography I seek in illustration. (E.g. The island is lightly wooded, but is not thick in forest. The surrounds are unspoilt peaks and valleys, again, with only hints of habitation if any at all.)
I welcome imaginative designs that fulfil the design brief, but please bear in mind that my target audience are readers of action, romance, suspense, self-help and erotic novels; hence the extensive brief attached. What I am specifically not seeking is a stock photo, drawn over that is out of scale and does not comply with the terrain described. (Eg. A stock image of a bay with a drawn in isthmus to form the lagoon just looks fake to start.)
