There’s Just Something About that Cover Contest

It’s that time again! Yup! Another Book Cover Contest! And this one is extra special to me because it’s my first as the new chick. Yay! Hope it’s special for you, too…and if it’s not…lie. πŸ™‚ So, Naima Simone, new author to Chick Swagger,Β is bringing you all the picks we have for books with covers that make you say, Hmm. There’s just sooomethiiiing about that cover…

Y’know what we mean? You ever see a cover that makes you pause in your skimming–either on the Kindle, Nook or bookshelf–cock your head to the side, scrunch up your face and stare for several long seconds? Or the ones you can’t put a finger on why they’re so captivating, but they just are? Or the ones that are so artistically beautiful you’d like to egg the author’s house because they were fortunate enough to have the cover? Did I just say that out loud?

Anyhoo, getting on with it. We’ve picked seven awesome contenders! Please cast your vote for your favorite. Every one of them are beautiful, so you can’t make a bad pick. But the cover that receives the most votes will be announced Friday, May 2nd and crowned Chick Swagger’s “There’s Just Something About that Cover Contest” winner! Whoo-hoo! Let the voting commence!

      LMAO!! Oh Lawd, I hope my husband doesn’t read your comment about changing my Amazon password! He hasn’t thought about that yet, but has stuck with the dirty looks, beleaguered sighs, and Come-to-Jesus talks. And they’ve worked soooo well so far. *blink blink* Hiiiii, Josie!
