PSB: Recreate Cover Contest: This Side of the Grave by Jeaniene Frost


I’m sure you’ve seen this kind of contest before over at Princess Bookie, I totally love those, and the Crescendo Cover Contest last year was very successful, So I decided to do another one!

That’s right, we are gonna do a Re-Create Cover Contest!

but not just any cover, no no no!

You will have to do your very own This side of the Grave Cover!

(pretty much a Fan Art for the book)

Here’s an example:


The original cover of the first book on the left, and my take on it on the right. I chose James Marsters to act as Bones because he was the only bleached-blond I knew at the time. If you ask Jeaniene though, she would describe Bones as a blend of James Franco, Orlando Bloom & Chris Pine or Viggo Mortensen, Bruce Campbell, and Billy Idol, for those of us who know who they are *winks*

Your job though, will be to recreate a cover for the most recent release, This Side of the Grave!

Original cover below

thissideofthe graveDanger waits on both sides of the grave

Half-vampire Cat Crawfield and her vampire husband Bones have fought for their lives, as well as for their relationship. But just when they’ve triumphed over the latest battle, Cat’s new and unexpected abilities threaten to upset a long-standing balance…

With the mysterious disappearance of vampires, rumors abound that a species war is brewing.  A zealot is inciting tensions between the vampires and ghouls, and if these two powerful groups clash, innocent mortals could become collateral damage. Now Cat and Bones are forced to seek help from a dangerous “ally”—the ghoul queen of New Orleans herself. But the price of her assistance may prove more treacherous than even the threat of a supernatural war. …to say nothing of the repercussions Cat never imagined.

  1. Hmmm....Jessica Alba as Cat and James Marsters (a la Spike) as Bones. Thanks, Tynga. Now I want a movie, and I won't be happy unless they cast those two as the leads! Lol.

    I'm not an artist and always wanted to learn to be more computer graphically inclined but just not enough time in the time. I just wanted to say I LOVE your Halfway To The Grave cover re-design. Mmmmm Yummy Spike! :D

  3. I am gonna sit this one out I can't design but I can't wait to see the entries.

  4. James Marsters as Bones = No way.

  5. Wow, I love this cover contest :D And thank you for making it international - I live in Hungary and it's so hard to get a signed book from my favourite authors - and Jeaniene is my absolute-favourite :D So THANK YOU!

  6. I made a wrong entry. Please disregard it. *hurries to think of a good cover*
