Guys! I'm holding another bookmark design contest for OF NEPTUNE. I need the crazy talents of fans of the series to make it the best it can possibly be. I NEED YOU. Yous guys are waaaaaaay more creative and skilled at this sort of thing than I am and it's time to show off what you can do!

So I was wondering if....

Would you design a bookmark for OF NEPTUNE? Pwease? Purdy pwease?

Here’s what’s in it for the winner:

1.)   A signed set of OF POSEIDON, OF TRITON, and OF NEPTUNE (when I get my copies of OF NEPTUNE, that is, since there are not ARCs!)

2.)    A $50 gift card to the bookstore of your choice

3.)    I’ll pay to have your bookmark printed, and you will get a good supply of signed, printed copies. Each bookmark will include a credit to you as designer.

4.)    A signed poster of your bookmark.

Here are the rules:

1.)    You must be able to design the bookmark based solely on the cover image and the blurb. In other words, the cover must be used somehow in the bookmark, and the bookmark must capture the sense of the blurb somehow. Remember, draw the reader in. Make them curious about the book. Make them salivate for it. Make them…well, you know.

2.)    If you choose to use any other images, you must have legal rights to do so.

3.)    By entering, you give me permission to mass produce and mass distribute the bookmark you designed (if you win). This means your bookmark design could (and probably will) end up in countries all over the world. So by entering, you agree that’s kind of cool.
4.) This contest is open internationally. 
5.) If I have a hard time choosing the winner, the finalists may be posted here for readers to vote. If this is not okay with you, please do not enter. 

Here’s how you enter:

1.)    Design a bookmark, front and back. It should be standard bookmark size.

2.)    Email the bookmark as an attachment to ofneptunebookmark (at) gmail (dot) com. All entries must be turned in by February 25th. 

The winner will be announced on Friday, February 28th (or, the finalists will be posted that day for voting). To get an idea of the finalists from last year see this post.

Without further ado, here is the cover image and blurb:

Emma, who is half human and half Syrena, and her Syrena love Galen, need time together. Alone. Away from the kingdoms of Poseidon and Triton. Emma’s grandfather, the Poseidon king, suggests the two visit a small town called Neptune.

Neptune is home to both Syrena and Half Breeds alike. But Emma and Galen didn’t sign up to be peacemakers between the ocean and land-dwelling, freshwater Syrena. They didn’t bargain for meeting a charming Half Breed named Reed, who can barely disguise his feelings for Emma. And they especially didn’t expect to find themselves in the middle of a power struggle that threatens not only their love, but their ocean kingdoms.
