Never judge a book by its cover

It’s said that one should never judge a book by its cover, but would you agree that there are times when that’s not such a bad thing?

judge-a-bookHere’s a proposal for my artistic and creative friends (yes, that’s you!):

  • I give you a digital copy of all three books in the ‘New Beginnings’ series.
  • When you’ve read them*, you design up to three covers (i.e. for one, two or three of the ‘New Beginnings’ titles) by the end of July 2014.
  • Your design can be in any medium e.g. photograph, water colour, pencil, oil, digital art – whatever floats your boat – as long as it’s compatible with publication parameters.
  • All designs – including the current covers – will be posted on my website, blog and Facebook page in August 2014, and readers will be invited to vote on a winner for each book title.
  • The cover of each book will be changed to the winning design.
  • If your design is chosen, your name will appear on the cover(s) and in all advertising of the appropriate book(s), and you will receive 20% of the net sale income for each copy sold.

Any takers?

Please share, especially if you have artistic friends who may be interested.

P.S. Here’s my own view on the ‘never judge a book …’ thing –
