October Book Cover of the Month Midway Update

With just seven days left in this month’s bracket, it’s time to update you all on how things have been progressing. As I type this, we’re have a pretty solid month, which makes me happy, especially considering how slow last month was.

3,037 votes so far.

, by Michael G. Manning took an early lead and hasn’t let it go.

Most Voted on so far: Deomonhome has the most total votes so far with 244.

Least Voted for: Eve: Rise of the Machines by Brian Walters. This cover has 45 votes. I’d like to see it get a bit more support.

Manning is off to a commanding lead here at the halfway point. He’s pretty much cleaning up on every level. He had 26 people vote him all the way through, most of the other covers are closer to 10.  His only real threats at the moment are The Fallen Queen by Janie Marie and Chosen by R.S. Broadhead. They both have more than ten, and need about 17 more people to vote them all the way through to overtake Manning.

51KAJrNkHDLA quick reminder of how the tournament works. The easiest way to win is to have the most people vote for you in every round. The trick is you have to have the most people vote you through in each round, all the way to the final.  As an example, 100 people could vote someone through to the finals, but that doesn’t do a cover any good if he doesn’t win the first round. It’s not total votes. It’s not simple championship votes. The winning cover has to have the most votes in each round of the competition.


This will be the only update for this type of bracket. It’s been an amazing tournament to watch thus far, and I hope readers continue to support their authors by voting, liking, and sharing the bracket with as many people as possible.  You can vote at this address!

I’ll announce the winner is just seven days!

Thanks for reading,
