We have a real, down to earth, contest for Rolling Around in My Head readers. I've been working on a new book and it needs a cover designed for it. We were talking about it today and trying to come up with ideas for a design or an image that catches the theme of the book. The book is about working to keep people safe within systems. The idea we want to convey is the sense you get when you are at home, snuggled in and feeling safe.
Mike and I tossed around ideas, he wasn't impressed with mine and I didn't like his. As we had come to a stalemate he said, in a moment of inspired brilliance, 'Why not ask your blog readers to come up with some ideas as to what images or pictures would portray that feeling. We could offer the winner the first off the press book as a prize.'
I thought that was a marvelous idea. I know the readers here to be creative, inspired and talented people. Who better to ask. So put your thinking caps on. You can put the ideas in the comment section or you can email them to me. We'll choose a winner if we find an idea that we are going to go with - next Wednesday. So you've got a week. Get thinking!
