Need a book cover designing? Check out this cool contest!

Evan from Hire The World contacted me with this ah-ma-zing contest for self-published authors just like your fabulous self, and I knew right away I wanted to share it with you.

Why do I want to share it? Because y’all know I love me some internationalization. The idea behind Hire The Worlis super cool, and a great chance to get an international perspective on your book. I’ll let Evan explain the deets of the service and their current contest!


“Self publishing is tough, but we’re hoping to make it a little easier for you. We’re giving away two FREE Book Cover Design Contests to awesome authors like you!


HiretheWorld allows you to tap into the creativity of hundreds of designers from around the world as they submit unique book cover designs for your perusal.
