First Ever E-Book Cover Design Giveaway

Photo credit: Mine
So remember that exciting thing I hinted about on my New Years roundup post? Yep. This is it.

Writability is roughly a year and a half old and for one reason or another, I’ve never had a giveaway, so I thought this would be a really fun way to kick off the New Year and tell you guys about the re-launch of my book cover design services. So!

Some of you may remember way back when I announced that I am now officially accepting submissions for book cover design work. In short, I’m also an artist as well as a writer, so the opportunity to be able to combine my love for books with my love for art is one that I won’t pass up. For an example of some of my work (beside the cover mock-up used for this post), you can check out my deviantart page.

While there will be a new page describing all the new details and fiddly-bits soon, let me tell you about the awesome giveaway.

I want to design an e-book book cover, bookmark or banner for you. For free. Should you win, all you would have to pay for is the cost of any stock images you wanted to use (which are optional). Considering these services usually run plus a hundred dollars, I think it’s a pretty exciting opportunity. The only thing I would ask is that you let me show everyone your shiny new awesome cover by putting it in my portfolio.

The best part is winning is easy—all you have to do is enter the Rafflecopter giveaway below. There are tons of ways to gain entries, and if you’re a follower of this blog, then congratulations! You already qualify. All you have to do is submit your entry below.

Now some of you without books in need of e-book covers may be wondering whether or not to enter. Even if you don’t have a book, I can also create blog or website banners (book-related or not), or you could always create one for fun. It’s all up to you.

The giveaway will run throughout this entire month and the winner will be announced on Monday, February 4th.

So what are you waiting for?

Ooo, what a great giveaway! I would use it for a book cover, as I'm planning on publishing my first book this year. Thanks for the chance!

Barbara Storey said...

One question, though - how do I join the Writability community? I follow you on FB and Twitter, and I get updates from my Google Reader. I also just signed up through my Blogger identity - is that what you mean by community?

Daniel Swensen said...

I am so in.

Margaret Alexander said...

That's pretty sweet of you to do, Ava! I hope you get an interesting topic! I'll throw myself in there just for fun :) Writing AND art people are just too cool, don't you agree? :P

Ava Jae said...

Absolutely! Thanks for entering! ^_^

Ava Jae said...

All I mean by "joining the community" is signing up through GFC, so if you get updates on your reader, you're already in. :) And since you follow me on other sites (i.e.: Twitter and Facebook), you already qualify for extra entries. Yay!

Ava Jae said...

Fantastic! :D

Ava Jae said...

Thanks, Margaret! I look forward to seeing what I get. It should be a fun experience.
And I have to agree completely, although I'm pretty biased. :)

Barbara Storey said...

Not sure what GFC is (Google something?), but I do get updates in my Google Reader, so I guess my e-mail for that would be my GFC name? Sorry for all the questions!

Ava Jae said...

No worries! If you're asking, chances are there's someone else wondering too. GFC is Google Friend Connect, which is the name of the Blogger feed reader sign-up (the box over to the side where you likely clicked Join Now to start getting posts in your reader). Your GFC name would be whatever login you used when you signed up. Does that help?

Barbara Storey said...

Doh! I didn't realise it was called "Friend Connect"! LOL. So now I know I'm covered - I've done that and I also get your posts on my Google Reader with the same e-mail addy. It's all good! Thanks again!

Ava Jae said...

No problem! I'm always happy to help. I wish you the best of luck! :)

Lisa Shambrook said...

Some great art on your Deviant profile! I'll be after a book cover this year!

Ava Jae said...

Thanks, Lisa! Working on a soon-to-be-ready WIP, I take it? :)

Emily Mead said...

Awesome! Sounds great, and I've seen some of your designs (which are OBVIOUSLY brilliant).

Ava Jae said...

Thanks, Emily! ^_^

Robin Red said...

I'd use it for Ravella :)

Ava Jae said...

Fantastic! A WIP, I take it?

Robin Red said...

Yes. According to my writing goal for the year, it should be finished by summer.

Ava Jae said...

Nice! Good luck!

Jane Lebak said...

I'm not sure yet which book I'd use it for, but I have two likely candidates. Book covers are fun, and I wish you all the best! :-)

Ava Jae said...

Thanks! You too!

Laura said...

looks amazing! I would love a cover for my WIP.. ;)

Ava Jae said...

Fantastic! I wish you the best of luck! ^_^

Shauna Roberts said...

If I won, I would get a book cover.

Ava Jae said...

Sounds good to me. Good luck! :)

Angel King said...

If I won, I would have you design the cover for my book On Fire. I hope to publish it this summer. It would also be really sweet to have you do a coordinating banner for my website!

Ava Jae said...

That sounds great! Best of luck!

Shana Hammaker said...

If I won, I'd ask you to design a kick-ass comic-book-inspired cover for my #WIP Locke and Key. :-)

Ava Jae said...

Interesting! Good luck! :)

Margaret Miller said...

What a great givaway - I've done my best to share it around - thanks

Fantastic! Thank you Margaret, and good luck!

Can't believe the giveaway is almost over! Looking forward to the announcement on Monday!
