Mr Ripley's Book Cover Wars 2012 - Heat 2 of 4 Plus Competition - Jonathan Maberry Proof
You have, yet again, entered Mr Ripley's Book Cover Wars.......
Heat one has just recently come to an end. The runner-way winner was Ransom Rigg's book cover for 'Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children'. This cover received 104 votes out of the 217 votes that were cast. Therefore, as a worthy winner, it now finds itself in the final.
For any new or existing follower of this site this is the chance for you to become part of the weekly book cover wars. Each week (for the next 3 weeks) I am going to select four book covers for you to vote from. 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 2011'.
As a voter not only will you get the chance to choose your favourite book cover, but you will also be in with the chance to win a different special book each week.
The book competition winner from last week was picked at random by Sarwat Chadda to win a copy of his new proof "The Ash Mistry Chronicles". The lucky winner is Pagecrawler - I will be in touch with you for your postal details. Hope you enjoy reading it.
In order to kick off the competition this week we have an amazing US book proof by Jonathan Maberry called Dead of the Night, which is a great read and is due out early November.
If you are interested in voting for a book cover and being in with a chance to win a book then all you need to do is:
