Blood Like Stone
Born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, Red likes to hike with his dogs - just not in St. Louis. In his early years he spent time chasing adrenaline, but since his hair fell out, he spends it not catching any fish at the nearby lake. With man's (two) best friends to bounce his ideas off, he makes his living self publishing books with a very niche target demographic.
Dystopian sci-fi western revenge story. An evolution of humans known as Conductors have developed the ability to manipulate the elements. Some long years after they lost a war for their rights, the few remaining of their kind try to live civilian lives. Veterens of the war, Mason and Ash Stone have had to change their names to protect their identities. All they wish now is to live in peace, despite their tormenting past, but sometimes the monsters lurking under the guise of civility are worse than beasts of war. Now it is up to Mason to protect his family and right a grave wrong.
Ages 18-40 of all genders. People that read science fiction or westerns.
I attached the cover of The Man Called noon as well as a doodle I made with crayons... Essentially I'm looking for a sci-fi western feel in the cover. Thinking some dark figure kind of controlling some earth/rocks around his hand, standing over a corpse (maybe?) Looking for bold, iconic look. See attached The Man Called Noon, like this... But no cowboy hat, and instead of a train ... Maybe an older model truck like a Ford ranger, chevy Silverado, etc.

Fabulous to work with and very responsiveness to all my requests. With this being my first book I wasn't sure what to expect. Working with didiwahyudi.trend couldn't have been easier. He made it painless. I think its safe to say my cover turned out better than I could have ever hoped. I can't wait to see what he comes up with for my next book.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
