This contest will go on for three weeks, and then I’ll name a winner.
There won’t be a 2022 competition. I think my channel needs a bit more time to really make all the effort and stuff worth it. I may revisit the idea if my channel gets more traction, but this is it for the next year at least. The channel will go in a different direction. Once I have a sense of what sort of content viewers are looking for, I’ll build from there.
We’re just about ready to start looking for the 2021 M.L.S. Weech Book Cover of the Year, but to do that, we need one more weekly winner and then one more monthly winner.
As I said, I certainly won’t do a 2022 Book Cover of the Year. The project isn’t generating a level of interest that makes the time and energy investment worth it, but I’m going to try a few other things on YouTube. If you have any ideas, please feel free to let me know.
For now, let’s name the winner fro Week three of the 2021 M.L.S. Weech Book Cover of the Month of March.
House of Sky and Breath by Sarah J. Maas was honestly such a beautiful cover. It had great art. The detail was fantastic. It joins Lost in the Waking Well and the Starless Crown in the 2021 M.L.S Weech Book Cover of the Month of March poll, so you only need one more cover.
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.
First off, I just want to say again that Hazel is live in both electronic and paperback formats. I’d be ever so grateful if you gave it a try.

The cover for Chimera’s Prism by PJ Garcin is just so dynamic. I love how they use the text and light to create a three-dimensional effect. The detail is also amazing. That means Prism joins The Doormen and Oldtech for the November title.
We’re officially halfway through the 2021 M.L.S. Weech Book Cover of the Year! That means we get to start the September poll and start collecting covers for October.
Let’s start by announcing the final winning cover for the month of October which is …
Falling by T.J. Newman had such a clever combination of color and pattern. Even against fantasy covers, this book stood out. Falling joins The Desert Prince, The Maleficent Seven, and War Priest to round out the 2021 M.L.S. Weech September Book Cover of the Month. You can choose the winner by heading here and voting.
Meanwhile, the October competitions have begun, and you can vote for Week One’s winner right here.

The 2021 M.L.S. Weech September Book Cover of the Month for Week 3 is …
The Maleficent Seven by Cameron Johnston really did just look awesome. I loved the energy and color of the image, and I’m a sucker for silhouettes. So big congrats to that cover, which joins War Priest and The Desert Prince in the overall September poll. But before we can do that, we have to pick a winner for Week 4. Please vote for that cover right here.
