Slip by Victoria Browne
A Short Story. When Emily visits a nursing home on behalf of her employer, she doesn’t expect her life to change forever, but it does. She has a small accident when she arrives, leading her to new friendships, reconciliation, and the answers to questions she hasn’t even asked. Her moment of carelessness becomes a gift from the other side. Loosely based on the true story of two sisters who let time slip away from them, this touching tale shows how unspoken emotions can push away those closest to us—and how important it is to reconnect before it’s too late. What I'd need: I would need an e-book cover. And 2 paperback sizes. E-book cover AND Amazon book size: 5 x 0.1 x 8 inches 50 pages. AND (this would be an additional job should you win, price negatiated before.) A small pocketbook: size is 5.5" x 3.5" (140mm x 89mm), spine 0.2205 in (5.6mm) and bleed is 0.125” (3.175mm).

I'm no 100 on what I'm looking for. The last time I said to a designer what I wanted I ended up with not such a good design. I've attached my current book cover so you can see and then some other book cover images that I like. However, I'm not married to a door. I just want a really good looking cover.
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.
vixlyttle 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.

And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
