Blushing Books Cover Contest

We’ve been told not to judge a book by its cover, but even so publishers – and authors – know that good cover art is essential to getting readers to notice and buy books. So in honor of our hard-working cover designers, and in appreciation of the readers who notice those covers, we’re launching our First Annual Blushing Books Cover Contest, with prizes that include either brand new Nook or Kindle Fire.

You must be registered with Blushing Books to participate. After that it’s as easy as voting in two rounds for your top three favorite covers. Four voters from the first round will have their names selected at random to win a $25 gift certificate from Blushing Books. In Round Two, the list of covers will be narrowed to ten finalists, and at the end of that round one lucky voter will be selected at random to win a Nook or a Kindle Fire.  The winning cover artist will be awarded a $100 gift certificate to Amazon.

Remember you are voting purely for covers! You do not have to have read a book to vote for that cover. Just pick the covers make YOU most likely to click on a book and consider buying it. Results from this contest will be shared with our artists to help them create even better covers next year!

Please note: The covers are organized below alphabetically. Please make sure to look all the way to the bottom to give our covers with titles farther down in the alphabet a fair shot!

The rules are simple:
1.  No purchase is necessary, but you MUST have a Blushing Books account.  An account is free to set up so if you have never done it, what are you waiting for?
2. Each account may vote only one time.
3.  In the initial round, you will vote for three covers.   Each vote is worth one point; you are NOT ranking them.
4.  If you do not vote in the first round, you may still vote in the second round, BUT to be eligible for our grand prize you must vote in both rounds.
5.  We reserve the right to substitute an alternate prize if our grand prize winner is out of the country and in a region where a Kindle Fire either can’t be sent or is not allowed.
6.  Our prize winners will be announced by first name and state.  (e.g., Susie from Ohio.)
