Christmas Book Covers

I know, the last thing you want to think about in September is Christmas.

But it’s coming, and more importantly, my BOOK IS COMING!

Which means I need to decide on a cover – SOON!   (The one on my sidebar was a weak attempt of my own)

I’m running a contest over on to try and find the cover for my book/ebook.  There are graphic designers from all over the world submitting their work for my (our) consideration.  Submissions close on October 2nd, but I have several queued up already.

Click on any of the images to link directly the the designers portfolio.

What do you think?  Any favourites?

Anything jump out at you and say “I NEED to buy this book!”

I have a favourite right now, but after asking a few friends, no one chose the same one I did – which has me questioning my choice.

Design contest is still open and the winning designer will get $250 – but you have to submit through before October 2nd.

Help me out gang – I need suggestions, advice, designs and opinions.  I may not agree – but it will help me to be open-minded and choose the most compelling one.


Have a great one!

    Yep 2 or 7 pulled my wallet right out of my purse. Love that you did a Holiday book of your wonderful,clever ideas.

      Agreed – both were from the same graphic designer, so I went with a combination of the two – thanks for the input!

    Sorry to be frank, nothing in this list wows me.

      Frank is appreciated – I need to know what sells the book – and if nothing does, it’s good to know ahead of time! Thank you for taking the time to let me know.
