2013 Book Cover Contest

January 6, 2014 | 3 Comments

Time for the 5th Annual
Best Book Cover Contest!


I look forward to this contest every year. It’s just…fun!

And apparently you like it too because it’s been the most requested event that I’ve been asked to carry over from the old LDSPublisher.com site.

Here’s how it works:

1. Nominate 2013 fiction covers by LDS Authors.

2. Vote on covers.

3. Praise winners.

The details can be found here and I beg you to please read them.

Jan 16: Vote on Middle Grade Character (covers with a character as the focus of the design) & Middle Grade Concept (covers that focus on concept) & Middle Grade Illustrations (covers that didn’t make the other two categories, but their illustrations are too awesome to ignore).

      Lori, each genre category/subcategory will have it’s own post. Starting today, there will be 2 or 3 categories posted. If you scroll down to the bottom of each of those posts, there will be the words “Click to Vote” in blue. If you click that link, it takes you to the survey form where you can vote.
