As some of you may know, the wonderful Kelsey Macke is hosting a contest to find the cover of her upcoming book, DAMSEL DISTRESSED (SHC, October 2014). I think it’s such a cool and innovative idea, and I really hope she gets tons of entries. Below is a letter from Kelsey she asked me to share. Enjoy!
My name is Kelsey Macke and I want to thank you all so much for your amazing support for the DAMSEL DISTRESSED Cover Design Contest!
We have already received some gorgeous entries, and we can’t wait for you all to VOTE on your favorites very soon!
But before we don’t want to miss out on any other creations, so I wanted to reach out and let you know that there are still FIVE days left to create an entry to submit!
As you know, the winner will be paid the design commission, and the 10 semi-finalists will win prizes as well, but I have to be honest. The part of the contest that makes me jump up and down like a crazy person is the fact that one of you will be creating a piece of art that speaks right alongside my own. That collaboration is an incredible and beautiful gift, and I am so grateful to each one of you.
That and the fact that my book needs a face.
Please, help my book find its FACE! ^_^
For all the info you need about the contest, how to enter, and even details about the storyline, characters, and design aesthetic, visit teamomgen.tumblr.com.
And if you are interested in sharing about the contest over the next five days, I’ve also got a special giveaway going JUST for you! http://www.damseldistressed.com/news/13887851
All my gratitude and love,
