Contest For Writers: Book Cover Giveaway!

I was recently inspired by Sumayyah at The Raven's Desk for this next contest idea. I don't have any books to give away, so instead, I'm giving away book covers.

Not actual book covers from actual books. I mean, I'm designing book covers. Are you an aspiring author with a WIP you'd like to put a cover on? Are you a published author and just want a cover remake for the fun of it? This is the contest for you.

I'm choosing 3 people who will be able to discuss with me the premise of their stories and what they'd like to see. Keep in mind, these covers are for fun. They are NOT to be used for commercial or marketing purposes. (i.e these may not be used as real covers for self-publishers)

If you're new to the blog and aren't familiar with my skills, here are some examples.

Contest ends: Sunday, February 28 at Midnight EST.

To enter: Simply leave a comment on this post with a way to contact you.
Note: You do NOT have to be a follower to enter. (But it'd be super awesome if you were!)

Extra entries: (Include links when necessary)
+2 Being a follower. (Old or new)
+1 Twittering, sidebar, etc. (Max 3 entries)
+3 Blog post.

I don't expect an amazing response to this contest, but it'd be amazing if you'd spread the word, even if you aren't entering. Thank you in advance!
