Awaken Cover Re-Design

Welcome! Today, starts
A Cornucopia of Dystopia
which runs from March 21st till April 18th.

So to kick this off here at Loud Words and Sounds I'm holding a Cover Remake Contest.

Here's how it's going to work. For anyone that wants to participate, they have to remake this cover:
Awaken by Katie Kacvinsky

Here's a summary of this awesome Dystopia novel:
Maddie lives in a world where everything is done on the computer. Whether it’s to go to school or on a date, people don’t venture out of their home. There’s really no need. For the most part, Maddie’s okay with the solitary, digital life—until she meets Justin. Justin likes being with people. He enjoys the physical closeness of face-to-face interactions. People aren’t meant to be alone, he tells her. Suddenly, Maddie feels something awakening inside her—a feeling that maybe there is a different, better way to live. But with society and her parents telling her otherwise, Maddie is going to have to learn to stand up for herself if she wants to change the path her life is taking. In this not-so-brave new world, two young people struggle to carve out their own space.

All Submissions are Due by:
April 4th by NOON (EST)

I wish I could draw and stuff but I can't =( I'm horrible at art unless it involves Crayola and a coloring book. Lol but I will be checking up on the covers when you put up the winner and stuff!

I love cover re-make contests. This was lots of fun. I haven't done anything art related in quite some time (been busy with school). Plus, this gave me the opportunity to brush up on the photoshop skills. I'm really looking forward to seeing what others come up with.

So there it is, my cover remake for Awaken. :)
FYI: I'm not a resident of the USA or Canada. Hope that's okay?

It's no problem. I changed my mind about that its now open international. I should revise this post....

So, I realized I forgot to do this earlier. Thus, I'd like to give credit to the photographer whose stock image I used to create the cover.
