Cover Design Contest!


Ever wondered exactly what went down after the arrest of Ember’s mother? Or how Chase really feels about Ember? Or about Chase’s time in the Federal Bureau of Reformation? If so, you’re in luck. In preparation for the release of BREAKING POINT, Book 2 in the ARTICLE 5 Series, I am going to be releasing a series of previously unpublished A5 excerpts from Chase’s point of view on my blog during the months of December and January.

But what is a book without a cover? Before I release Chase’s story, I need the proper wrapping (it’s the holidays after all!). That’s where you come in. I am looking for some ARTICLE 5-inspired artwork to be presented on my website along with these scenes – a cover of sorts. Interested? Here are the details:

  • Art of any medium will be accepted (drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, collages, scrapbooking, friendship bracelets, etc.). As mentioned above, the “cover” will be posted on my blog above Chase’s story. You don’t have to be Picasso to enter the contest – I draw stick figures too! No inappropriate content will be considered.
  • The cover must be emailed to me at no later than midnight, December 1st, 2012, with the subject line: ARTICLE 5 ART. Included in the email must be your name and the city where you live. Or at least what you’d like me to call you and where you’d like me to believe you live.
  • I will present the top three entries on my blog the week before the first scene is posted. I’ll also likely brag about them on FaceBook and Twitter. The winner will be chosen by a panel of me, my greyhound Rudy, and my infant son.
  • In addition to having their art displayed on my website before Chase’s story, the winner will receive either a signed ARC of BREAKING POINT or a signed hardcover of BREAKING POINT (when it releases February 5th, 2012) and a BREAKING POINT button. Also celebrity rock star status (obviously). The two runners-up will receive BREAKING POINT buttons (courtesy of the amazing JeanBookNerd).

The contest begins now. I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
