Cover Art Contest!

So, the entries are in for the cover art contest, and they are wonderful! A huge thank you to everyone who took the time and aggravation (and believe me, I know how aggravating this stuff can be) to help me. I really appreciate it.

Now, on to the entries!


I think we can all agree that I have very talented readers! More importantly, I have a bunch of people willing to help a gal in need out, and I appreciate it more than I can say. As a result, I decided to give everyone a prize, to say thank you for your hard work and generosity. Everyone who entered will therefore receive a signed copy of Ride the Storm as soon as I get my author’s copies. Just please send me your snail mail address, so I know where to send it. And thank you for helping!

I couldn’t decide on an overall winner, so I did a random drawing for the $75.00 gift card. The winner was Elaine Murphy. Thank you Elaine!

So, which one will be the book cover?

Um, so here’s the thing. You guys sending in all these great entries inspired me to do some Photoshop work of my own, for the next Dory novella, “Dragon’s Claw”. I had a cover, but didn’t like it much, and thought I needed to punch it up. And in the process of trying to find a better background image, I came across a photo I liked and started fiddling with it and . . . well. By the time I was finished, I had a cover. Which wouldn’t have been a problem, except that it was for “Lover’s Knot”! And that, you know, I really sort of like this one.

Awkward, right? But I thought it went really well with the previous novella’s cover, “Zombie’s Bite”, and with the next one, “Dragon’s Claw” (which I finished revising, btw. It’s in the previous blog entry). Anyway, since all these novellas are connected, I thought it made sense for the covers to be as well. But I would never have gotten here without you guys, so thank you very much. You can expect the newest freebie either at the end of this month or early next (probably the latter, you know me.) I think you’ll really like this one. 🙂
