QUICK NOTE -
- bookcovers2buy.smugmug.com/ my book cover website is up where I am adding new book covers for sale daily. Your cover could be up there too.
- the first entries get the most exposure on my home page
- authors are buying directly from these challenges, even before the polls have finished.

Hi, I'm very fortunate to have many author friends on my Facebook page so, to benefit us all, I put up my favourite artworks using my stock (with the artists permission of course) for authors to browse. Once in a while they even buy one :) (Smile) Whatever fee I charge, I go halves with the digital artist through Paypal.

PLEASE READ THE DIRECTIONS BEFORE POSTING -
- You can use any of THESE MODEL stocks (you don't have to use my background stock, although I do love seeing them used) and any others from this stock set here - cathleentarawhiti.deviantart.c…
- List and link to the stock images and make sure if you use other stock as well from someone else, that commercial use is allowed. That's a must.

Choose whether you want to make the front cover or the full wrap-around -
- for the front cover - USE 2 WIDTH BY 3 HEIGHT RATIO (20CM WIDTH BY 30CM HEIGHT) and make them 300dpi in case authors want them to be big enough for print books, as opposed 72dpi for ebooks. Here's a quick tutorial about how to change it from 72dpi to 300dpi [link]
- For the full wrap-around - front and back for print books. All you need to do is place your main character/s on the right-hand side. I can do the fitting. These are examples of what I mean. Just make your dimensions 6" x 9" (3921 x 2775).

To enter, post your artwork here in the comments. (Put it as a new comment here rather than a follow-on to any other comments you make,I have dozens of comments to reply to and I see the journals first).  Don't worry about doing the text, I'll sort that out later with the finalist images unless you really like doing it. Limited to five entries per person. Deadline in two weeks, 6 February 2018 New Zealand time (remember New Zealand is one or two days ahead of the rest of the world).
NO asking friends, etc through polls, messages or notes to vote - lets keep it fair.
Then we'll have some polls and I will display the poll winners images in the gallery on Facebook and/or book cover sites for sale.

FAQ - What is the book about?
      - It's not one particular book, if you have a look at my page, www.facebook.com/pages/Cathlee� you'll see a variety of different covers. Authors can browse the different genre folders for what they need.

I'm not sure if the size of cover is ok, so if it's not I can change it. :) Thanks for this challenge.

It looks perfect to me but you need to put the credits up first.

Oh sorry, I put it up as quick as I could, so it's in there already.
