Twilight Your Covers

At the request of those in the comment thread below: a contest! Remake your favorite romance novel cover, only do it Twilight style. Giant red O’Keefe flower on a dark background with The Sun Also Rises is the Opposite of Twilighton it? Woo! Giant close up of dying horticulture, preferably tinted red? Make it a book cover, baby.

The winner whose cover best causes someone to spit a beverage on their laptops will receive a $25 gift card to the bookstore of their choosing. You’ll be voting to pick the winner, so get ready and have a napkin handy. If you’ve never seen the power of the Bitchery unleashed upon Photoshop, be warned. If you’ve already done one in the previous thread, and would like to enter it, feel free -just email me the file or the link.

You have 24 hours to harvest every idea you can. Please do not make the entries more than 350 pixels WIDE. Send them my way at SarahATsmartbitchestrashybooksDOTcome or host them elsewhere and send me the link – but please put “Twilight Cover Contest” in the subject line. You have until 2pm EST tomorrow – have fun!

    Sorry, I missed the bit where it says favourite romance novel.  The Complete Book of Baby Names isn’t actually a romance novel…

    @Ros, no it’s not a romance novel, but it’s often an epilogue!

    I found a non-romance novel that doesn’t even need photoshop, which is good because I can’t remember how to do anything.

    Oooh—good one Phyllis!

    Song of Solomon also has potential….mmmmmh.  I mean, she sits under his tree and tastes his fruit.  Rowrrr!

    (Yeah—try sitting in church and read SoS—and really think about what it’s saying…  hee hee.  I know.  I’m naughty…)

    The example, The Sun Also Rises, was not exactly a romance.  I am hoping that not quite romance entries will be acceptable.  If not, ah well, I had fun staying up way too late and playing with it anyway.

    I sent mine in.  And commented on it: how happy am I that we don’t have to post them in the comments?!

    I wish I had all you guys’ L33T skillz, but I don’t…

    my spamword makes me feel better, though:  but69!!  woo!

    I just found this blog/contest like 5 minutes ago, or I totally would have done a better job with this, but I just had to send something (I spend most of my time just looking for the perfect cover :-p)… I think I might have even been a minute late sending in but, again, just had to send something :-p Will definitely be looking for the next contest like this! Too fun!
