The Emerald Talisman by Brenda Pandos Re-Create Cover Contest!

This month I've been hosting The Emerald Talisman blog/book tour. The blog tour ended this week, it went by so fast! I really want to thank every person who participated, you are all amazing! Also, the book tour is still going on and I am excited to see more lovely reviews. To celebrate the ending of a phenomenal tour, me and Brenda will be hosting a Re-create Cover Contest for The Emerald Talisman.

I enjoy entering these creative contests, so I wanted to give a shout-out to Cindy at Princess Bookie for being the first to come up with the concept idea. Also, you don't have to be the greatest user of Photo Shop to enter. Everyone's efforts will be recognized and appreciated!

-Participants will re-create The Emerald Talisman cover. Here is a larger image of the original cover and summary for inspiration:

Summary: To be normal, sixteen-year-old Julia Parker would shed her empathic gift in a second. Life has been difficult since her mother's mysterious disappearance ten years earlier - an event she witnessed, but can't remember. Julia's situation becomes more complicated after a near death experience from a blood thirsty stalker. As high school students go missing it is clear there is a connection to her own experience--past and present. Someone has to stop the madness and a chance encounter with a creepy psychic foretells that only Julia is the key to stopping the madness, but it may require the life of the one she loves.

-Brenda will be choosing the best cover entry.

I haven't read this book, is there any chacne I could have a general physical description of the main character?

Thank you ^^

Eleni said...

Great question Tynga - these are the descriptions:

Julia -- dishwater blonde, straight past her shoulders, hazel eyes

Nicholas -- green eyes, brown hair (long and tossled on the top) and yummy lol
