2 eBook Covers for Amazon

Contest Brief

I need 2 eBook covers for 2 very short novelettes I'm putting out. These 2 covers will have to look similar in how the typography is laid out, how the author name shows up, and everything like that. The only thing that needs to change on the 2 covers is the image. So really all you have to do is find 2 copyright free images and slap some good-looking text on there. Wow! Easy money!

Now, these 2 books are erotica. I'm publishing these under a pen name. I want this to be an ongoing series and I'd like to get the designer who wins this to make me additional covers, hopefully at reasonable prices. These books are only about 7,000 to 10,000 words long so I can put out a new book every 2 to 3 weeks.

Here are the titles and author for each book:

Sophie in Paris by Jacinda Boudèt
Sophie in Barcelona by Jacinda Boudèt


Pretty cheesy stuff, I know. But it sells. Good luck and I hope we can see some fun designs. Here are some links to the hot sellers:

    By far the designs of #50 are the best. I love the flag colors. Unfortunately it's been more than a day and that designer hasn't gotten back to me. Those are the kind of designs I want and if anyone can make me a few I'd be quite happy.

    The main problem I keep running in to now is that Amazon is blocking my books. Either that's because the content is too strong or the cover images are too strong.

    In other words there can't be any nude women on the cover.

    Right now #50 has this contest pretty well locked up.

    Most of the photos I've been looking at are coming from here:

    I'm trying not to have the women's faces show really. Here's what another eBook of mine looks like:

    Thanks for the work everyone. I'm not really seeing any breakthroughs in design here, and I could really do better typography myself.

    I'll try and find some stock images since clearly no one is experienced making covers for this genre.

    Please no 'by' on the cover.

    These are pretty dirty books with very offensive language, read at your own risk, and all that jazz; not some 4 o'clock after school special.

    I have a photographer friend. So I might be able to get the covers done in 2 days within your budget limit ($40) if you can give me time.

    It's very unlikely you will find copyright free images at same image quality as on your examples. Have you tried stock images?
    Some stock agencies provide free-royalty images that you can modify and print up to 500 000 copies.

    Please hire me for more details and works.
