Which Cover Do You Like?
Sean and I recently used 99 Designs to host a cover contest for our forthcoming Dark Crossings collection, which gathers Volumes 1, 2, and 3 and includes 18 stories and authors’ notes.
I had a specific idea in mind which I didn’t think I could do a good job at representing, so we started a contest with some loose guidelines of what we wanted. Chief among the guidelines was that the cover had to have a street sign of some sort (though we would accept non sign-related covers if one was more awesome).
We had 60 entries total, and a lot of them were damned good. We could pick as many finalists as we wanted, but didn’t want to leave three artists hanging and waiting around for our decision when they could be out getting more work, so we forced ourselves to narrow it down to just three designs.
I can honestly say that I LOVE all three of these covers for different reasons.
And I’d be proud to see any one of them on my book shelf. Yes, there will be a print version.
So, which cover do YOU think would look best?
