We’re chugging along and about to finish the seventh month of my book cover of the year competition.
The winner of the third week of October is …
Dragon Bond by Ursula Visser had perfect composition! Every single element was placed exactly where it needed to be while avoiding any overlap, which can cause tension in the eyes. That means it joins Gutter Mage and You Give Magic A Bad Name in the overall October competition. This week’s winner will round out the poll, and you can vote for Week 4’s cover right here.
I’d appreciate it if you’d head over to my YouTube channel and give it a like and a subscribe. It really does help me out.
Another month of the 2021 M.L.S. Weech Book Cover of the Year is in the books. We have a winner for July. We have a winner for Week 2 of August, and Week 3 is underway. So let’s make the announcements!
The 2021 July M.L.S. Weech Book Cover of the Month Week is…
Hummingbird joins Of Glass and Ashes in the August competition, which will kick off after we pick two more covers. You can vote for August’s Week 3 cover right here.
I’d be much obliged if you’d check out my YouTube channel, where I talk about these covers and what I like about them. It’d mean a lot if you subscribed and clicked that bell notification. It’s a free way to support me.
Happy first everyone! July 1 felt like an eternity in coming, but I’m glad it’s here. First off, happy 4th everyone. Be sure to enjoy everything you love about the holiday. That said, it’s time for a new bracket. If you’re curios or new, check out the Book Covers for December,January,February,March,April, andMay.
June’s bracket has 30 new covers and the top two runners up from last month, The Lost Travencal by C.M. Jobe and The Other One by Amanda Jay are also back for their deserved second attempt at winning.
Last month, we went with a single tournament in which voters could vote through all the rounds at one time. Since it broke the record for most overall votes, I’m giving it another shot. I still feel it was taking a lot of energy though, so this month’s bracket will only be one week long. To make it work, I need your help. 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.
