Assalaamu alaikum warahmathullahi wabarakatuhu guys! 🧕
I'm soooooo happy and jumpy and too many things at the same time. I have an announcement to make. 🙃🙃🙃
Before that, I sincerely hope and pray you all are in your best state of health and Imaan. I hope you are all having a great day and I hope what I'm going to say now to make it even better.
Here it goes:
I'm getting published! 🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳
Alhamdulillaah, Alhamdulillaah, Alhamdulillaahi rabbil 'Alameen.
I know; I can't believe it either. I've been on it for a while now and it still feels surreal! Subhanallaah!
A big thank you to all of you for making this possible! Jazakillah khair.
Thank you for joining me on the rollercoaster ride that is Captivating Illusions. Yes, I'm renaming it! I know most of you love the story with its current name but I wanted something that could speak more about what the tale entails.
Coming back to the book, I loved writing it soooooo much and I'm really glad I was able to share it with you amazing people over here.
As a token of my love-and because you guys are the best and, therefore, deserve the best-I will be giving away never-before-seen content!
You get a bonus chapter! And you get a bonus chapter! Everybody gets a bonus chapter!
A better, more amazing version of this book is going to be published on September 26, 2020 EST, In sha' Allaah. It will still be here on Wattpad, but for copyright reasons, my publisher has asked me to take down half of the chapters before publishing.
They are also setting up an author page for me. (I'm really feeling legit writer vibes, you guys!) On this site, you can participate in a book cover contest for Captivating Illusions. You can create and submit the cover you've always wanted and imagined for the story. And who knows? Maybe you'll be the lucky one to have his/her name in print on the book itself and on its cover!
You as a book cover artist! Imagine that!
The following are the things you need to know before joining the contest:
• Send the covers to my agent at email@example.com on or before September 12, 2020.
• Know that if we choose your cover, you will get credit on the physical cover of the book. If you're an aspiring graphic artist, this can be a good addition to your portfolio and might bring you future work from us and other book publishers.
• If your cover wins, you will have to fill out a form that lets us have the cover.
• You cannot use any copyrighted images. You can use royalty-free images.
• If your cover wins, we will do everything we can to use it. However, you need to know that there can be odd reasons why we might not be able to. For example, we might not be able to use the Photoshop file because of an error or we might find a copyrighted image in the cover design.
The cover must meet the following requirements:
• High-res, in JPG and PSD (Photoshop) format so that we can use it for the paperback version of the book
• 5.5 in x 8.5 in and 300 DPI (pixels per inch)
• Must have the book title "Captivating Illusions" and the author's name "Bushra"
• The cover has to look good in Amazon thumbnail size. Attract possible readers; make them want to click on it.
• The text needs to be readable.
• Use a maximum of two fonts.
By the way, this is not mandatory. I'm only giving you guys the chance to get involved in the book launch because I couldn't have gotten here without you. I can't thank you all enough! May Allaah bless you! 💜
Please stay tuned for more updates. I'll see you in the next post!
Assalaamu alaikum warahmathullahi wabarakatuhu!
Remember me and the entire ummah in your dua'a 🤗
