Mariam Maarouf, author of Rosie will be releasing her debut novel in January (Amazon Kindle available in January / Paperback in February.) In celebration, I'll be hosting a re-create cover contest where I give the chance for my lovely followers to show their creative skills. Like all my other cover contests, you don't have to be an expert. As long as you bring your imagination, Mariam and I will admire and appreciate all your hard work. Below are all the details and rules for this contest. Remember, it is international so everyone could enter, now go have fun!
:: Prizes ::
- First Winner - ARC of Rosie
- Second Winner - An exclusive, electronic set of 'extras' about the background stories of the main characters.
- Third Winner - An exclusive, electronic set of 'extras' about the background stories of the main characters.
:: Cover Details ::
-Participants will re-create the Rosie cover which will be picked by Mariam. The character appearances, summary and book trailer are there for inspiration.
Summary: In life, nothing is the same as it seems. People create masks –identities – to hide who they really are –some for noble reasons, or nefarious ones, but only a tiny fraction because they must. Alessandra and Damien, or Rosalie and Daniel, were once the Princess and Prince of La Pacifica until they were forced out of the beautiful island. Eight months flew by, and they finally began to settle in Alexandria, Egypt, when they found out that they didn’t leave their past behind them, and that they were both wanted urgently. Dead.
There are two main characters, Alessandra (Rosalie) and Damien (Daniel). They are brother and sister so no romantic covers, that would just be awkward. ;)
Hair: Light brown, a couple of inches past her shoulders
Hair: Coal black, short
Eyes: Aquamarine as well
Height: Tall, taller than his sister anyway.
