We're looking for the *front cover art* (spine and back cover not needed) for the post-apocalyptic novel NEENA GATHERING by Valerie Nieman.
* We tend to prefer photo-based covers over drawn or heavily stylized covers.
* If all you're able to come up with is an un-altered stock photo with the title slapped on don't bother. We can do that ourselves and save money. :)
* We tend to prefer covers that are interesting at both full size and thumbnail size. The look of the thumbnail size image is important as most of our sales are made online where the buyer first sees the thumbnail size.

* The winning cover will appeal to both adults and young adults.
* Featuring a young woman who looks like she's been surviving the apocalypse is a plus.

We need the final artwork in minimum 300cpi, CMYK, sized 6.5" x 9.5" with no text within 0.5" of any edge. File format should be .psd with the title and author name in their own layers (all other layers can be merged if you like, though they don't *have* to be).
