Blushing Books 2012 Cover of the Year

Korey Mae Johnson’s cover came in second in our contest.

Maybe it’s that cheeky way she’s holding her bottom. Maybe it’s the title combined with the picture that conjures mental images of a woman waiting to be spanked, or rubbing her sore bottom after an instructive session over her dominant partner’s knee. But whatever the reason, Blushing Books readers have chosen Owlight Design’s cover for Sullivan Clarke’s Acting Out as the winner of the 2012 Blushing Books Cover Contest.

Response to our first ever cover contest was overwhelming, with readers drawing incentive from prizes awarded through the two rounds of voting. Four of our readers won the drawing $25 Blushing Books gift certificates in first round voting, but it was second round voter Tina from the UK who was chosen at random to win either her choice of a Nook or a Kindle Fire. Congratulations to all our reader winners!

Cover artists will receive prizes, too. Owlight Designs will receive a $100 gift certificate from Amazon. And since voting was so close, Korey Mae Johnson will also receive a prize for her second place entry, the smoking hot cover of Paige Tyler’s Spanking Sydney featuring popular cover model Jimmy Thomas.

Blushing Books would like to thank our readers for the wonderful response to this competition. Cover artists are very important to authors, publishers and readers and we are fortunate to have a talented designers who so skillfully bring Blushing authors’ visions to life in a way that gets the reader’s attention.
