mackova.tereza got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Book cover design for a romantic ebook "Tokyo Story"
Check out mackova.tereza's Book cover contest…
It's a romantic novel of a love triangle of a Czech girl and two Japanese guys. Alice is a young woman from Prague, Czech Republic (caucasian, blue eyes, light brown hair) who travels to Tokyo to find a Japanese pianist, Katsu, whom she is still in love with. She doesn't know his address or a phone number; therefore she is looking for him all over Tokyo music schools. On her frantic quest, she meets another Japanese guy, Hikaru, (he's Japanese, but his hair is bleached blond, later dyed to dark red) who joins her in her search. During the time they spend together, they fall in love with each other. When Alice finally meets her previous love, Katsu, they have a big argument, and Alice leaves Tokyo heartbroken. That's just when her disappointment leads her to the realization that she is in love with Hikaru and they finally find way to each other.
The story sets in Tokyo Japan, I want the Japanese theme to be visible from the cover. There may or may not be people (a couple in an embrace or leaning on each other etc.). The book combines fine romance, gentle nostalgia, and smart humor - I want this to be recognizable from the cover. Even though I like artistic creations, I want this cover to sell in the romance genre, so it must follow the genre convention.

Working with Kid Mindfreak was a WONDERFUL experience. He is talented, responsive, and created truly amazing and inspired work. He followed the brief to a T and made sure to create something original and perfectly executed. I hope I get a chance to work with him again in the future!
