There’s Still Time to Vote For the 2021 April Book Cover of the Month! Presenting May’s Week 2 Cover!

Greetings All,

Before I announce the winner for Week 1 of the 2021 May Book Cover of the Month, I want to take a quick moment to ask you to vote for the overall 2021 April Book Cover of the Month. We have four great covers to choose from, and I’d like all those covers to get the support they deserve.

Now we can move on to May! I still need your help to get this back to the level of support it had a few years ago before I went on hiatus regarding book covers.

So first, let’s announce the winner for week 1.

The cover for The Sunfire King by Sylvia Mercedes is an interesting choice from the viewers. On one hand, it was beautiful color and detail. On the other, it was so busy. I can’t deny that detail though.

But, as one week passes, another begins. So you can vote for your favorite Week 2 2021 May Book Cover of the Month right here!

I’d be grateful if you would be so kind as to watch my channel, where I talk about all seven of the covers and why I think they were so cool. My middle son joined me for this episode, so that was nice of him.

Remember to vote for your favorite through the link I provided above! This means that Sunfire King is the first book to make it in the finals for the 2021 May Book Cover of the Month! You guys can choose who wins the title and then support your favorite in the yearly competition (obviously next year)! I hope you’ll participate.

Thanks for reading and watching,

Matt

Announcing the Week 1 2021 April Book Cover of the Month! Vote for Week 2’s Cover

Announcing the Week 1 2021 April Book Cover of the Month! Vote for Week 2’s Cover

Greetings all,

My Book Cover of the Month contest is back in the swing of things. It’s not entirely unexpected, but we’re off to a slow start. This weeks’ winner was actually a tie I had to break. I had six votes, and, sure enough, each vote was for a different cover. I’d love to get this back to the level of support it had a few years ago before I went on hiatus regarding book covers.

So first, let’s announce the winner for week 1.

I was just a big fan of this cover overall. It’s probably not the genre I’d like most, but I can’t deny how well Spellmaker by Charlie N. Holmberg sings.

But, as one week passes, another begins. So you can vote for your favorite Week 2 2021 April Book Cover of the Month right here!

Vote for the 2019 April (Week 1) Book Cover of the Month!

Vote for the 2019 April (Week 1) Book Cover of the Month!

That’s right folks! The Book Cover of the Month (and year) is back (click here if all you want to do is vote)!

This has actually been going for a bit, and I even mentioned it in a different blog, but that blog had some other information that might have buried the news.

How the new system works!

First, if you want to watch my pick the covers and talk about why I like them, check out my YouTube channel!

Would you like to join me and talk about book covers? I’d love to have you. You just have to email me and give me your name, email, and Zoom user name. Do that, and I’ll email you to tell you when I’m about to be on. I try to be on at the same time, but married life makes that a bit tough. For instance, I expect to be on looking at covers Friday.

Also, Saturday, April 10 at 2 p.m., I still plan to do the cover reveal for Betrayed that way, and I hope you’ll join me.

But, that’s not what you came here for is it?

Each week, I pick seven covers. Then I post a Google Form where you can vote for your favorite of those seven. The winners for each week get put in a final form for the title of Book Cover of the Month.

I’m hoping you’ll take a moment to vote for your favorite of Week One’s seven covers. You can vote here! You’ll need to be signed on to Google (to keep those super passionate people from voting 1,000 times).

I’ll announce the winner in a future video (and a small post here).

Thanks for reading (and hopefully voting!)

The July Book Cover of the Month Begins!

The July Book Cover of the Month Begins!

July_Cover_CollageHappy first everyone! As is now officially tradition here on my blog, it’s time to start a new book cover of the month competition.

A Guiding Light by Susan Copperfield returns for her third try and joins 31 brand new covers this month.

You can vote all the way through the tournament, supporting the covers you like best through each round. I like to make sure people get the credit they deserve, so please show your support. Please vote and share as much as possible to get people a chance to pick their favorite.

As always, I’d appreciate it if you tag the authors and artists if you know them. I try to tag or friend every author I can, but sometimes it’s hard to track someone down. Max participation is a huge deal to me. The more people who vote, the more recognition these authors and artists receive, and I want this to be as legitimate as possible.

If you are the author, let’s remember to be good sports! 1) Please feel free to message or contact me at any time. 2) Please feel free to like, share, text, ask for support, and call everyone you know. I absolutely want max participation. However, if you’re going to offer giveaways or prizes, please offer them for voting, not just voting for you.

Also, while your summoning your army of voting soldiers, please make sure you ask them to vote in every match. Part of the idea of this is to get exposure to as many artists and authors as possible. By all means, if you can get 1,000 people to vote for your book, do it. Just please also send some eyeballs to the other matches.

A final note to authors and artists: I currently have links to the books’ Amazon pages. If you’d prefer I switch that link to sign up for your newsletter or like your social media page or whatever, just send me the link and let me know. I want this to help you. I want this to be as helpful as possible, so whatever you need me to do to facilitate that, just let me know.

I hope you keep having fun. Please, vote, share, and discuss as much as possible.

All you have to do now is head over here to vote!

Thanks for reading,

Matt
