Inspire me!

I’m currently running a bit low on ideas inbetween writing at the moment (novella number 2 will be out in October - woo!) so send me the name of a film or television show and I’ll see if I can do a poster of it!

Some slightly badly taken photos of the full Wes Anderson collection in print!

(I have no idea why both my arms and the wall look blue in the Bottle Rocket picture.)

Notes

Brick, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and a remixed High Fidelity which were created specially for the lovely Tania on etsy!

An updated version of The Darjeeling Limited has been loaded onto the etsy store (http://www.etsy.com/listing/104844071/the-darjeeling-limited-alternative-film) so that the animals actually look like animals up close.
I am aware I should’ve perhaps done this to start off with but hey, sometimes I’m lazy!

Book Cover Competition Update

Just to make submitting to the competition a bit easier I’ve added a submission button to my menu bar.

Book Cover Competition!

I’ve been working on a new novella which is coming out on Amazon in the next few weeks.

In honour of this I’m running a competition to find a cover for my book!

The winner will get their piece used as the cover as well as a copyright inside the book and the opportunity to do other covers in the future (I’m hoping this will become a series of novellas).

Inspiration

The style I’m aiming for with the book is kind of Dirk Gently meets Pushing Daisies meets Wes Anderson and in terms of genre it’s a murder-mystery.

Ideally I’d like to see at least one of the following items on the cover (but it’s not compulsory):

  • Cary - A tall, slim man with straggly hair and beard, who wears a suit that is two sizes too big
  • Hollie - A redhead with elfin features who wears a pencil dress
  • A set of spectacles with pocket mirrors strapped to the sides (Hollie wears these in the book)
  • A long-legged tabby cat
  • A kettle in a filing cabinet
  • A pale blue room that resembles an empty doctor’s or dentist’s waiting room without the posters or magazines

Rules for entry

  • Deadline is 5th August 2012.
  • Must be sent as a .jpeg file
  • The image must be orientated portrait (like the image at the top).
  • It must be your original work (i.e. you cannot use images you do not own as part of the piece).
  • Maximum of 3 entries per person.
  • Space must be left to put in the title and author’s name (if there’s a specific spot where you think they should be placed please mention it in your e-mail).
  • (Amazon requires the picture to be 1000 x 1600 pixels, but as long as I can scale it up or down I don’t mind the size.)

To enter

Submit your piece, along with the name you’d wish to be credited and an e-mail address at which to contact you, using the 'Book Cover Competition Submissions' button at the right of my menu bar.

The winner will be announced on the book’s official tumblr site when it launches on Monday 13th August 2012, further details of which will be announced at a later date on this site.

Please note the e-mail address entries are sent to is a personal e-mail and I have no interest in passing on details to third parties. E-mails will be kept as a record of correspondence though.
