You are now entering the book cover war zone for 2010.
For any follower of this site, this is the chance to become part of the weekly book cover wars. Each week (for the next 2 weeks) we are going to select four book covers for you to vote for. The winner of each heat will then go forward to the final round and get a chance to be crowned as 'Mr Ripley's Enchanted Book Cover Winner 2010'.
We are now into the third heat. The last heat saw the battle of the giants - the eventual 'runner-way' winner (with over two hundred votes) was Curtis Jobling's "Wereworld". In the end this book got an amazing amount of votes. So well done Curtis, you are now the winner of Heat Two. A big thanks to all the authors who got behind their own book cover and for all the votes that were made by those who happened to wander across my humble blog!
