I am so super excited to be a part of the announcement for this amazing “design your own cover” contest for author Robyn Schneider’s SEVERED HEADS, BROKEN HEARTS. Because not only is this contest awesome, with a seriously amazing prize, but I get to be a judge!
Yes, I am one of six judges who gets to choose a favorite cover that will be sent on to the publisher for final selection. And the winner gets a signed ARC of the book ages before it gets published.
But I’m getting way ahead of myself…. Let me try this again.
Author Robyn Schneider has written a book entitled SEVERED HEADS, BROKEN HEARTS which is due out on June 4, 2013 from Katherine Tegen Books (an imprint of HarperCollins). A book that I very much want to read right now and which one winner will have the chance to read really soon.
In conjunction with the cover reveal, which happens a week from today, the author and publisher are having a contest which invites readers, bloggers, artists… everyone… to design their own version of the cover. Six judges will pick their favorites which get sent to the publisher who will make the final decision. And that winner gets that awesome prize.
This book sounds absolutely amazing, so I can only imagine that designing the cover will be crazy fun. And with a title like SEVERED HEADS, BROKEN HEARTS I’m certain there will be a ton of super creative covers. Which means that choosing just one is going to be impossible. Yikes!
The contest rules are simple. But before I get to those, here’s some information about the book to spark your creativity, channel your inner designer or just get you excited for this upcoming title.
And no, that’s not the cover, it’s just a placeholder. But if you click the image it will take you to Goodreads so you can add SEVERED HEADS, BROKEN HEARTS to your TBR pile.
