#SPFBO 8 Cover Competition

SPFBO71024_1

If you follow my blog you’ll probably be aware that I take part in the Self Published Fantasy Blog Off (SPFBO) competition as a judge.   SPFBO 7 finished recently and SPFBO 8 is due to commence after a short break.

What’s SPFBO?  This is a competition for self published authors of fantasy fiction.  It’s the brainchild of Mark Lawrence and it’s mission (other than to boldly go….) is :

‘The SPFBO exists to shine a light on self-published fantasy. It exists to find excellent books that might otherwise have gone unnoticed. It exists to help readers select, from the enormous range of options, books that have a better chance of entertaining them than a random choice, thereby increasing reader faith in finding a quality self-published read.’

Check out Mark Lawrence’s post here to look at this year’s entrants, judges and allocations list. 

As with SPFBO 7 The Critiquing Chemist and I will be teaming up again.  We had a lot of fun last year discussing our batch of books and can’t wait to start tucking into this year’s entries.  Check out the Critiquing Chemist’s intro and book cover post here.  These two ladies are just amazing and I can’t say enough good things about them and the charm and intelligence that they brought to our team last year, joining up has definitely been one of my better decisions. 

My SPFBO7 wrap up and intro to SPFBO8 will be posted shortly. 

In relation to the Cover Competition. 

Every year, as part of SPFBO, there is a cover competition.  Each of the 10 judges chooses 3 covers from their selection of books and these are then voted on by both the judges and the public.  Go ahead and take a look at all the lovely covers and make sure to vote on your favourites once the link becomes available (keep your eyes peeled here).

    We picked the same favorites, so you obviously have good taste! 😉I also really like The World Breaker Requiem. I can’t believe the new competition is starting already. Good luck to the participants 😁

    Yes it is, and it won the public contest and came second in the judges contest so I’m really happy for the designer.
