It’s time for our 7th Annual Book Cover Contest!
Every year we do a book cover contest—nominating and voting for the best covers published in the previous year. It’s fun—and a great way to acknowledge the behind the scenes work of the designers.
You’ll need to visit the site daily from Jan 18th through 29th, if you want to vote in all the categories.
Feel free to swipe the image from this post and share it on your blog, website, social media or wherever your want to help spread the word. Use this link http://bit.ly/1Ju53mf (because it’s short and easy) and hashtag #2015LDSCovers
Here’s how it works:
- Nominate book covers for 2015 fiction by LDS authors.
- Vote on covers.
- Praise the winners.
The long version of the details are found here, and please, please, please read them carefully.
An Easy Way to Nominate!
If you’re on Pinterest, you can go to my boards and “like” the covers you want to nominate. Be sure you look at the boards that say 2015 in the title. (There are 10.)
If you aren’t on Pinterest, you can still nominate by e-mail. Just scroll through the 2015 posts and nominate your favs.
* I’m still adding some 2015 releases as fast as I can. If you know of a book that’s qualified but not on my site, please send me an e-mail.Nominate your favorite book covers from 2015! #2015LDSCovers Click To Tweet
