Do you have the Best Indie Cover art? Well, do you?

What I'd like to do is have some self published authors (or their readers) send me their book covers. First 10 covers get put into the poll.

Then I will do a blog which will allow readers to vote on which cover they think is best. Each person who comments will get their name put in for a draw.

The prize to the commenter who gets their name drawn is all ten authors will give them a copy of their e-book. That's 10 books people!

The winning cover art will be promoted on all the other authors blogs for a day. Yes, you can get your friends to vote for you, in fact, it's encouraged.

This is a way for us indie authors to support one another while still promoting our own, and each others work. And I think it has potential to be a lot of fun.

So this is it. Indie authors, send me an email at motionsrider@yahoo.ca with a jpg. of your cover. First 10 authors who get me their covers are in. :)

As soon as I have enough covers, I will contact all participating authors and we'll put this poll up.

Now, GO!

**Because of the tremendous response to this, I will now be doing a MONTHLY cover art poll with the same parameters as in this post. So if you'd like to be a part of a future poll, send me your cover**

As of right this minute, there is still room in the poll if you want to be a part of it!

If I get enough of a response, I might open up more slots. :)

What a fantastic idea.

I sent mine in, but didn't hear about it until close to 5 pm. (Pacific Time)

I'll be happy to host the winning cover on both my blogs though.

There's been such a great response, I'm going to make this a monthly event!!!

So keep sending me your covers, I'll put you in the que and let you know which month your book will be highlighted in the Cover Art Poll. :)

Can readers sent custom art?

Shannon said...

Anon~ Readers can send in suggestions for their favorite author if the author agrees to give away a copy of their e-book as a prize and 1 or both of you is willing to host a blog post for the winner of that month's cover art contest. :D
