A Cover Winner

August 6th, 2009 • Kate

paleTurning the blog over to Intern Jenny for her announcement of the winner of the cover design contest! Take it away, Jenny!

All of your cover designs were so great that it was hard to choose just one. Ultimately I had to envision myself perusing the YA section of the book store, not tough since it’s one of my favorite past times, and ask myself which cover would inspire me to pick the book off of the shelf. The winner of our contest looks like a bona fide YA novel straight from Barnes and Noble. And the winner is…

talshannon (aka Xarles Boivin) for PALE! I actually really liked both of the covers. Each one stirs up a completely different concept of what the story might be, which just goes to show how important the right cover is.

Of course there were some very close runners up. HWPetty‘s cover for FORCE was compelling and MarcyKate‘s TRAVERSE had me giggling.

Thanks to everyone for participating and congrats to talshannon for winning a copy of Alyson Noel’s best-selling novel BLUE MOON! Please send us an email with your mailing address so we can get your prize to you.
