To a Far Western Land
The only thing in Jim Heston’s name is a forlorn farm. The War took everything else from him: his father, brother, and even his broken-hearted mother. When the last chance at making the old homestead work fails him, the only option he can see is to start over and begin anew in California, a land of promises and dreams. The path won’t be easy. To get there he must cross a thousand miles of the harshest, most dangerous terrain on the frontier. A frontier filled with fierce storms, savage Indians, and rampaging renegades leftover from the war. Going alone is suicide. After joining up with a wagon train in Independence Jim heads slowly west. But it isn’t the enemies outside the train that pose the worst danger. The real trouble comes from within.
Typical western reader is male 50 or older, but there are quite a few female readers as well.
Book cover type
Title and author name at the top. Story takes place in cowboy times. Can also somewhat match other books I’ve released. My author page on Amazon is: https://www.amazon.com/Carson-McCloud/e/B07N7QBPD5/ref=dp_byline_cont_pop_ebooks_1
What to avoid
This is not a romance book.
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
kadederricks collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Sanjay was great to work with! Very responsive to everything I asked for. Came up with a great concept for my book, much better than I had hoped. Highly recommended!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
