The September Book Cover of the Month bracket has just wrapped up. Regrettably, it is officially the record holder for the least voted on month in the bracket’s history. These things happen sometime. I’ll work harder to spread word, but I still want to thank everyone who did get involved. These brackets are special to me, and they grow more legitimate and meaningful each time we keep heading forward.
We had 2,092 votes this month. Here’s hoping this month holds the record for a long time.
We’ll keep moving on, but today is all about celebrating this month’s winner.
The September Book Cover of the Month is…
Let’s look at the stats!
Weeks received 162 total votes. This was honestly a close fight in terms of votes, but Weeks took the lead with about four days to go and didn’t let go.
The Festival of Trial and Ember Forest finished second, which means that’ll have another chance to be the Book Cover of the Month for October.
That said, Weeks is the winner this month, so let’s look at her book.
Casey and George are traveling around Japan’s notorious suicide forest when they see something move in the tree line and Casey can’t shake the feeling that someone has been following them.
Later that night, Casey wakes up to find a woman in their room. After breaking free of the woman’s entrancement, Casey wakes George, who convinces her it was just a dream.
George has been acting off since their visit to Japan. Now they’re home, the worst happens and George is killed in a freak accident.
It’s one year later and she’s about to leave her small hometown, Pleasant Springs – in hopes that her nightmares would end. Since his death, her dreams have been haunted by a mystery guy who is hellbent on causing her pain, but, before she makes it to the airport, Casey is kidnapped and taken to the hotel from her nightmares.
She is plunged into a creepy world filled with the supernatural, underground cities, and sick games.
Her mystery guy tells her he is trying to save her from the others. However, her ex – George could be behind her kidnapping in the most sinister way.
Nothing is as it seems in the dark world of the Stalkers.
As always, I’ve purchased the book and added it to my TBR. (For those who are new to the deal, I buy the Book Cover of the Month to read and review in the future. I bought Manning’s cover, Howard’s cover, Deyo’s cover, Jones’s Cover, Hubert’s Cover, MacNiven’s cover, Jon del Arroz’s, Rob J. Hayes’s, and Chris Philbrook’s They are also on my TBR. Manning’s review is here. Howard’s review is here. Deyo’s review is here. I’ve read Jones’s book, and I’ll post a review for it in a few weeks.
Here’s Weeks’s Facebook page. Give it a like if you’re curious about her and her work.
I don’t know who the artist is yet, but I’ll see if Weeks will help with that.
The October bracket is still under development, but it looks good so far. It’ll kick of Nov. 1.
I will continue to identify and select covers for each day from Amazon’s New Release section for fantasy and science fiction. If you follow and like my Facebook page, you can see what covers will make the bracket.
