I learned a few things from my recent cover contest. It came as no surprise to me that Echo of Heartbreak, A Recipe for Life won because it is wonderful. My cover artist Beth Maddox from Cover It Up Designs does fantastic work.
Here's what did surprise me. Some people don't like covers with colored borders. Some don't like photos of places. Others don't like people on the cover. And some people like absolutely nothing.
After tabulating all votes, this is the cover art ranking:
Echo of Heartbreak, A Recipe for Life
Lord of Blakeley
And tied for the bottom of the cover barrel:
Waiting for Richard
This was more for research than anything else. And it's interesting to note the top three are covers by Beth Maddox of Cover It Up Designs. I think I'll keep her.
