For the creative among you, Ty Schwamberger is running a contest for a new header for his website. Here’s what he has to say, “I’m looking for some new artwork to display at the top of my website. I would like the new banner (it needs to be a little larger than 760×200 pixels so I can crop if needed) that incorporates my existing books (except Night School – which is now out of print and I don’t promote any longer) and forthcoming releases. Even though the cover art hasn’t been announced for the majority of my future titles, I would still like to have artwork of what the books are about incorporated in the new banner. This can be open to your interpretation. The only detail that definitely needs to be in there is my name, of course. Other than that, you can put your artist abilities to the test and let fly.
“The winner will receive, upon publication, the following titles: Fell Beasts anthology (edited by me), For After Midnight (my short story collection) and Twisted Tales from the Torchlight Inn anthology (the 3-novella collection by Thomas A. Erb, Dean Harrison and myself). So, as each one is released and I receive my contributor copies, I’ll send you an autographed copy of each.”
How to enter: The deadline is January 14th. Submit your entries to Ty’s email address (under the Contact Page on his website). He will announce the winner and credit you for the banner on or before January 16th. The new banner will also appear at the top of the page at that time.
