Even though your designs may have not won the askGabe Book Cover Design Contest - your designs are still very good and I would like to use them still. In other words, I would like to hire you to make some specific modifications to your book cover designs so I can use them and for this, I will pay you $20.00 per design.
In addition, I would also like to hire you on an ongoing basis for whatever new designs that you come up that I will end up using, then I'll pay you for that. In the end, you could end up making hundreds of dollars for this kind of work.
Please let me know if all of this is acceptable to you, if so then please accept my project and I'll send you specific instructions on what to do next. Thanks.
