About I Am Mila
Want to be a cover star? The team behind Red Diesel, a forthcoming novel presented as an iPhone app, is looking for a cover star to be shot by fashion photographer Nicole Heiniger.
Want to try your luck? All you need to do is upload a photo to this group, from which a shortlist of 10 images will be made. Two more will be added to the shortlist by means of a public vote, and an overall winner will be chosen by a judging panel consisting of the author, the photographer and Lucy Davies, photo editor for The Telegraph.
The cover image is to represent Mila Cavendish, one of the main characters in the book. Closing date to entries is 10 February, with the preliminary shortlist announced and public voting for the final two spots commencing 13 February and the overall winner selected shortly after this.
All 12 shortlisted entrants will be featured on the app itself, with the winner's cover shoot documented and the cover adorning the cover of the app and all publicity materials.
As well as the cover and images from the shoot and shortlist, the app will feature the new literary novel by Neil George Ayres, and an illustrated work by Miguel Cervantes, author of Don Quixote.
The last time Alex Mooney saw his friend Mila was twelve years ago. Now she's turned up on his doorstep looking for a place to stay, but Alex knows his wife and brother-in-law won't be as thrilled to see Mila as he is. A quiet, introverted man, Alex is a world away from property corruption, Balkan gun-running and Mexican drug dealers, but these appear to be the reasons Mila is back in his life.
