I suggest you to open the covers page in a different window and check the covers you like in the poll.

Speaking of Events, Check Out What Book Cover Artist Paul Richmond Is Doing Right Now

Paul Richmond is having an event over at his blog. You can get there and vote by checking out Elisa Rolle’s blog first, here. I’m a huge fan of all his work, including all his book covers. And though I’ve never been fortunate enough to have Paul do any of my book covers, I did win one of Paul’s signed prints last year and it’s one of the most cherished works of art I own.

And I owned an operated my own art gallery in New Hope, PA for ten years. It was a successful gallery and the only reason I stopped was because I wanted to write full time instead of part time. And if Paul had been around when I owned my gallery, I would have begged to represent him. And I have a feeling I would have sold tons of his work.

So check out Elisa’s blog and enter Paul’s contest. I’m not going to say which cover I voted for, because it wasn’t easy to choose.
