Creepy Book-Cover Contest Winner!

WOW! What a response.

Thank you for coming to The Writing Bomb. I love taking reader, fellow author and publisher advice. You guys have been very helpful and I hope you see that in the updates I made to covers #1 and #2.

If you watch the video, you'll discover that I randomly picked Lauren, Twitter handle: @Iniysa. Laura's the winner of the $10 Amazon gift card. I'll contact her asap. Congratulations Laura! Thanks for voting. She picked #2, which incidentally, had the highest number of votes. 

And The Final Results Are....

Cover #1 ~~> 13 votes
Cover #2 ~~> 15 votes..The WINNER!
Cover #5 ~~> 12 votes 

I was surprised by the results. I actually thought #2 would win hands down, but it was a close race. Thanks to your input, I think I'll have the best cover of the five options. 

Here are the covers after tweaking....

Cover #2 is the WINNER! 
Cover #2, A Close Second Place.

What do you think? I love them both.

Thank you all so much for voting and stopping by. Be sure to follow my blog by email to get my weekly posts about writing, publishing, and my inspirational words that'll motivate your muse. Then, go buy one of my books and help me feed my 4 kids!


  1. Thank you! :)

    I like the new covers too! :)

  2. Congratulations Lauren.

    Jeff, I love both the tweaked versions but I'm leaning more with the one on the left...the combo of the people the red trees speaks louder than the other one.

    Nice to see you on web cam video. Isn't modern technology wonderful.

    "Bestsellers" to you on 'Creepy' and your upcoming book Twisted Vengeance'.

  3. Congrats, Lauren!

    And thanks for the wrap-up comments, Lynn. I need to edit this post and clarify a few things. Thanks for your input.

  4. hi Jeff! cover #2 turned out well. i like it now and it doesn't scream The Shining anymore. great job! c",)

  5. Congrats to, Lauren!

    I would have voted for cover #2 too. It's really nice :)

  6. I'm torn! I like them both, but I'd have to say the one with the tree with the yellowish background seems more creepy than the other :-)
