(This info is also posted here .)
In about a month I need to compile Volume 7 of my printed books . As the time creeps up on me, I realize I need to have a cover for this thing. I'd like to try something different.
Lots of people have cover art contests, and they are always so fun, so why shouldn't I? I always wanted to do some kind of fan art contest, and now I actually have a reason for one.
The rules are simple:
~ Should say "Used Books" somewhere on the cover.
~ Must be in color (or permit me to color it).
~ Must contain at least one Used Books character (more would be great).
~ Content should be relevant to the plot from Chapter 66 through and including Chapter 76 .
~ Entries should be in decent resolution. I will post web-friendly jpeg versions, but higher resolution is needed for printing. (This is the template I used for previous covers and will resize the winning entry to these dimensions.)
~ Deadline is the end of the current chapter, page 760 (around a month).
And now for the incentives:
~ All entrants get my love and appreciation!
~ All entries will be posted temporarily in my comic and then moved permanently to the FanArt section.
~ There will be cameos in UB for all entrants. (It will be several months from now, but I need some crowds/extras in future chapters.)
~ Winner will have his/her cover on Volume 7 of my book with full credit (and any desired info) printed on the title page.
~ If winner can provide a mailing address, he/she will receive a free copy of Volume 7 (which is worth around $11), or if they prefer, something of similar value from my CafePress store (I can customize with a different graphic too).
~ If you like, in lieu of a copy of Volume 7, I can draw you fan art and/or provide a permanent banner link to your comic from both Used Books and Gelotology .
(I print with CafePress. The pages are in grayscale but the cover is in full color. Here are examples of my previous books.)

Sounds interesting. I might partake if I can think of something and when I got some free time.
