We’ve just wrapped up another month. This month was a pretty close month! I’m glad June is a 30-day month because that means we might see another highly-contested bracket. There weren’t a ton of votes, but it was a close contest.
We had 3,235 votes this month.
It was a three-horse race the entire time, but one book managed to get seven more voters than the rest.
The May Book Cover of the Month is…
Let’s look at the stats!
Lenders received 227 total votes.
The Flipside by Jake Bible fell just eight votes short in the finals, and A Guiding Light by Susan Copperfield fell just four votes shy in the Final Four. The good news is (remember that 30-day month I mentioned?) both covers get another chance to win the title in the June bracket.
But for now, let’s look at this month’s winner!
In a tale of monstrous proportions, with a flash of steampunk gadgetry, experience the impossible. After leaving the police force and striking out on his own, Detective Desmond still struggles to come to terms with the death of his daughter six years later. Then disaster decides to come knocking again. This time, a young Octilune woman is found dead. As a species of half-octopus, half-human, Lizbeth Patinson’s death is a tragedy. Raging against the two injustices, Detective Desmond does everything in his power to find the murderer. When evidence points to him, he has twenty-four hours to prove his innocence. Is Detective Desmond really guilty of murdering two young women in cold blood? Or will he find the evidence needed to exonerate himself and finally find the closure he’s been looking for? Get ready to swim for your life.
I’ve added Clara’s Diary 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 buy all the winning covers. I’ve already bought, April, March, February, January, December’s book.
Here’re Angelique’s Facebook page. Give it a like if you’re curious about her and her work.
I’ll try to find out who did that cover. Truth is interviews are a bit hard to arrange on my end these days. I’ll try to get back on track, but things are looking a bit busy lately (in a less good way at the moment).
The June Book Cover of the Month is coming along, and that contest will launch July 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.
