Hello everyone,

We’ve just wrapped up another month. It was great to see a new cover bracket happen!

We had 2,433 votes this month. It’s below average, but at least it’s not the new record holder for fewest votes ever.

In this slow of a month, it’s common for one cover to sort of surge and then defend the leader spot, and that’s what happened this month.

The August Book Cover of the Month is…



Pipe of Wings by Sarah K. L. Wilson! If you’re curious about how I felt about the book, check out the Facebook post that I posted when this book first landed on the bracket, here.

Let’s look at the stats!

Wilson received 160 total votes.

September only has 30 days, so that means Born to the Blade by Michael Underwood, Marie Brennan, and Cassandra Khaw, and White Mind by Emma Stallings (this month’s runners up) get a second chance to claim the title in September’s bracket.

But for now, let’s look at this month’s winner!



A new story from USA TODAY bestselling author, Sarah K. L. Wilson.
Tricked and forced to do the will of the new Prince of Baojang, Amel returns to the Dominion. But things have changed in her homeland. Will she be able to turn old friends into new allies as she continues to fight against the Dusk Covenant and the Ifrit scourge?

Fans of Anne McCaffrey’s DRAGON RIDERS OF PERN and Christopher Paolini’s ERAGON will love DRAGON SCHOOL.

Pipe of Wings is episode fifteen of Dragon School – expect a new episode every eighteen days!


I’ve added Pipe of Wings 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 JulyJuneMayAprilMarchFebruaryJanuary, and December’s book.

Here’s Wilson’s Facebook page. Give it a like if you’re curious about her and her work.

The September Book Cover of the Month is coming along, and that contest will launch Oct. 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.

Thanks for reading
