#SPFBO 6 – Cover love (11)

Artboard 1
300 books           10 Judges            1 winner

The 1st of June marked the start of the sixth Self Published Fantasy Blog Off (details here.)  My Introductory post is here.  This year I’m aiming to shine a little bit of focus on some of the books either through posting excerpts to act as teasers for potential readers or through posting some of the covers and highlighting the book that way (not just for my own books but other entries).  The invitation is open to all authors from the competition – if you’d like to post an excerpt then give me a shout in the comments (also, if you’ve contacted me recently and I’ve not responded please give me a(nother) shout, I’ve noticed recently that a lot of my comments have gone straight to Spam or Pending so I may have overlooked something.

As part of the competition there is a cover contest.  The details can be found here.

So, this week’s chosen SPFBO covers are below – I think a couple of these, maybe even all three, are aimed at a younger audience.  The first cover – the guy in the background is a bit creepy for sure but I like the overall effect, I very much like the style of the middle cover, it really draws the eye and I love the quirky font.  The third cover made me smile, I love the huge character with the green hair, well placed tree cover and bird feet.  Do you have a favourite?

    Creepy AND menacing! The looming figure in the first cover is quite scary…. 😉

      Yes indeed – but still a cover that makes you want to know more.

    I think all of these are pretty good covers. Finding Fairy Tales jumps out at me the most though.

    Love these! They’re so whimsical, even the dark creepy one 😛
