LDS Publisher Book Cover Award

LDS Publisher presented book cover awards on her blog. She posted the finalists in different categories here. My cover for Pickup Games was a finalist in the Romance category and here is my award.

I have to say that I was a little surprised that it was nominated because I have heard some negative feedback about my cover and also it is not my favorite cover. There are some elements of the cover that I like. I like the basketball coming up behind the buildings and the sun rays behind it. I also like the outline of the buildings.

Thank you, LDS Publisher for the nice award and for including my cover in your contest.

Congratulations! I really like the cover, but what do I know? lol

Who does your covers for you?

Thanks. Brandi- my publisher, Cedar Fort, designs the covers. In fact, I have very little say about the covers. They are the ones who decide.

Congrats, Marcia! I liked this cover for many reasons including the elements you described.
Good Luck!
