JokersUpdates got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Vampire novel by author Cat LeDevic needs exciting, unique cover
Check out JokersUpdates's Book cover contest…
Art & Design
Shar is a newborn vamp with unique powers, training for war against more powerful and numerous rogues while falling in love with her maker. In Bloodmate's Bond, the tide of the war may change when a monk presents the king with an ancient artifact guarded for thousands of years.
What's your vision?
Bloodmate's Bond Cat LeDevic Dark cover with red (such as blood) popping maybe? One idea: golden chalice on its side, blood pouring into pool on small round table in front of heavy closed curtains. Another thought: a couple surrounded by white mist with a faint bond linking their hearts or around them: the chalice at their feet, blood on floor. Another is a series of framed objects down a hallway: can't tell what they are until you get a good look at one near end, which has a cameo on a black ribbon around it. Necks, of course! Perhaps faint puncture marks on one? No gore, overly violent overtones. My vampires are extremely classy. (The neck art hangs in the king's suite on his plane.) These are only ideas: feel free to be very creative!
One thing: I may need to change the title so I'll need whatever font you use if I don't have it. I use GIMP which takes photoshop files methinks, png files with layers, for sure. No blood-dripping fonts, please. Elegant!

I would highly recommend working with Julius as a designer: A fast worker, excellent design compositions and receptive to feedback, Julius has been a pleasure to work with. I'm looking forward to the next project!
