The One About… AllAuthor.com Cover Contest

Book covers are a curious thing. I actually gave a presentation a month ago to a group on self-publishing on how to get book covers done, because I’ve used every method possible and I’ve made every mistake in the book.

But foTaoOfMaudCoverr the cover of the compilation volume of The Book of Maud I published earlier this year, I went for simplicity – just the simple, Balance of Maud graphic we had designed as an icon for use at conventions, and the book title.

Seems less is more. When I signed up for the AllAuthor.com website to build the author platform, they selected that design for their May cover design contest.

It’s a popularity contest, so I’m asking, fo course for votes. I’m up against it seems like a thousand bodice-ripping romance novels, with the same formulaic shirtless guy, half-naked girl thing in soft focus; space operas with spaceships and tentacles, etc. I’m a different kind of book in this crowd, with a different sort of cover.

If you like, please consider giving me your vote at AllAuthor.com. Thanks for your support.
