As I type this, we are officially only two book covers away from naming the 2021 M.L.S. Weech Book Cover of the Year! That means we can announce the January Book Cover of the Month!
The 2021 M.L.S. Weech January Book Cover of the Month is …
The Tinder Box by Kate Elliott was such a unique cover. That uniqueness paid off as it beat out three other great covers to earn a spot in the 2021 overall bracket. Congrats to them!
The February competition is already halfway done, too. The Week 2 winner for the 2021 M.L.S. Weech February Book Cover of the Month Winner is …
The Atomic Ballerina by I.O. Adler was just amazing from top to bottom. Some may argue the art could be more “realistic,” and I suppose they’re right, but this cover is just wonderful! It joins Rising Shadows in the overall bracket for February.
We’re getting closer and closer to naming the 2021 M.L.S. Weech Book Cover of the Year. If I’m being honest, it looks like this plan was a bust, but I will finish the event because I just think people should finish what they start. We’ll try a few other YouTube ideas and see how they go, but this one didn’t take off like I thought it would.
That said, we can still work hard to name a good list of candidates for February, and we’re off to a good start.
The Week 1 M.L.S. Weech 2021 Book Cover of the Month of February is …
Rising Shadows by A.E. King wasn’t the most dynamic cover in the batch, but I do think it was the best executed, so it’s a nice first entry into the February Book Cover of the Month.
I’d be thrilled if any of you were kind enough to head on over to my YouTube channel and gave it like and subscribe. I’m still open to doing more book covers; I’m just trying to find content people would be interested in watching.
We’re one step closer to naming the 2021 M.L.S. Weech Book Cover of the Year!
The Week 4 2021 M.L.S. Weech Book Cover of the Month of January is …
Eye of the Fates by AR Colbert was just a really well done cover with some unique color and composition. Fates joins Spark, Ravens of Yellowstone, and The Tinder Box to round up the four nominees for the 2021 M.L.S. Weech January Book Cover of the Month, which you can vote for right here!
Hey all, another week, another book cover! It’s actually New Year’s Eve as I type this, so I’m going to get straight to it.
The Week 3 2021 M.L.S. Weech January Book Cover of the Month is …
Ravens of Yellowstone by Russell James. It’s not that complex a cover, but it’s beautiful rendering of that raven, and the color is awesome. Big congrats to that cover. Yellowstone joins The Tinder Box and Spark in the overall competition.
I’d appreciate it if you all stopped by my YouTube channel and checked it out. Please give it a like, share, and subscribe. It’s where I talk about the book covers and offer my opinions on why they work so well.
We’d be grateful if you took a moment to jump over to our YouTube page and offer it a like and subscribe. This is where you can see me talk about the covers and try to articulate why I liked them so much.
I wanted to keep this particular post going as the Book Cover of the Month contests are frankly less successful than I had hoped. I’m too afraid to take a break with this at the expense of failing to give it my all.
With that said, we do indeed have a winner for November. We also have a winner for Week 2 of December. So let’s announce the winners.
The 2021 M.L.S. Weech November Book Cover of the Month is …
Genesis Draconis by Kevin McLaughlin and Michael Anderleis such a dynamic cover with so much energy and great color and texture. It’s a worthy entry into the November contest. ! This really was a dynamic image with great texture. Congratulations to the artist and the authors. Good luck in the 2021 M.L.S. Weech Book Cover of the Year poll.
This means we only need four more covers to get the Book Cover of the Year poll going, and we’re already halfway through December.
The Week 2 winner of the 2021 M.L.S. Weech December Book Cover of the Month is …
Infinite by Duncan Ralston was a great example of balance and reflection (if with a twist). It’s a beautiful cover and a fitting entrant into December’s contest. It joins School for Spirits in the poll, and you can vote for your favorite cover in Week 3’s poll right here.
