Hard choice. Had to go with Wereworld in the end though. Just too cool.

Can't believe that I'm the only vote so far for Alien Storm!

Jo Bling said...

Wow! Terrific to see the uptake in votes - there's a real buzz about the Cover Wars and its lovely to be a part of it! And big thanks to the guys and gals who've voted for WEREWORLD - they're all strong contenders.

That Alien Storm cover is amazing!

Rhys said...

Wintercraft is the best <3

Jenna said...

I love the Cover Wars!

Wintercraft strode in ready to battle it out, but now metal dogs are nibbling at its pages, a green-clawed hand is trying to pull it through the Goblin Gate and a werewolf is staring it down in a most sinister fashion.

Silas Dane is not amused.
They'll be shredded paper all over the place before the end, you mark my words. ;)

Good luck everyone!

Sue Ransom said...

Wereworld was the clear winner for me. Had to turn my laptop upside down.

Jo Bling said...

Loving that comment about the laptop Sue! :-D Is it shameful to admit that I crouched on the stool in my studio with my neck craned to the ground when it first came through?

Ania said...
