This month we are running a contest that we hope will both challenge readers and give us important information at the same time. Posted below is the cover for my new novel, “Storm over Savournon.”
As you know, covers are supposed to be a mine of information for the prospective reader, providing the genre, the age group, the setting, conflict, characters, and many other subtle and even subliminal messages that tell you to buy, buy, buy this book.
This contest will help the cover designer find out how much information is actually available on this cover, how accurate it is, and how readily available it is.
All you have to do to enter is to send us an email describing what you think this story is all about, and who you think will buy it, based on your interpretation of the cover. Any opinions as to the quality and utility of the design will also be gratefully accepted, positive or negative.
Everyone who enters the contest will receive a copy of the ebook when it comes out in January, and the winner will get a copy of the print book, mailed to you anywhere in the world.
The email address is <email@example.com> The contest will run until October 18.
PS. To my beta readers: thanks for your help, and sorry, but no, you can’t enter the contest 🙂
