Solution Sunday: Contest Prizes Revealed; Kelly, Robert, and Mariah

- REVEAL DAY -
(I had a contest way back. Forgot? Me too. Kinda.)

You may remember three weeks ago I had a contest. Yup, I did. The prize was a cover designed by moi (that's 'me' in French. Oh, you knew that, you just gave me that look because moi is pretentious to use? What'd you expect, I have a 1:2 scale photo of myself as my banner). Well, I have finally completed the covers, two weeks late. Well, I took on a bit too much in February. Without further ado, here are the covers! Please click on them to get a larger and clearly view.

Also, check out the winner's blogs! Just click their name below their cover. They may have been randomly picked out of a hat, but they happen to be some of my favorite blogs to visit each and every day.

My heart goes out to Chile.

  2. Jenny - Thanks for the support. Feel free to make suggestions once I publish the list. Or if you have GoodReads, you may suggest via their feature.

    Anita - I'm jealous of you, so we have one big circle of jealousy here. *Group hug!*

  7. I LOVE me a good classic! Favs: Great Expectations, Villette, Rebecca, Anna Karenina, A Tale of Two Cities,and on a younger note, Whinnie the Pooh, Peter Pan, and The Wind in the Willows. (How old do they have to be, to be deemed *classic*? 'Cause i am not great on technicalities!)
    Also, I love the covers! especially the girl and the horse one.

  9. Michelle - Thanks for the comment. I think the term classic can be comprised of many diverse things. I chose titles that have been well-known for many years, but some books, like THE GIVER, haven't been around for that long and I consider it a classic must-read. I do think the term classic is evolving with the current influx of YA and MG lit. We'll see what happens.

    Also, Wind in the Willows is on my list for March.

  11. Jon--these are amazing! It's clear that you put lots of time and energy into producing these. Now that the physical manifestations are out in the world, let's hope that actual book jackets follow for these writers!
