VOILA! THE FINALS ROUND!

I didn’t think I would be able to pull this together (with a recent change that has been occupying my time), but here it is!

I keep forgetting how tedious it is to tally up the votes (very widespread nomination), put the images together, and create the polls. Lots of copying and pasting and cursing Illustrator for being slow. It should get easier from here…I hope.

What you find in this post are: 15 beautiful covers (that you nominated) for each category + polls.

And once again, we begin. Vote! And then get your friends to vote!

What You Need To Know

  • This is the finals!
  • These covers are all reader nominated.
  • Vote for the cover you believe should win each category because it’s superior and prettier than the others and fits.
  • Judge base on the covers. Not what’s in the book.
  • You’re only allowed to vote for ONE cover.
  • DO NOT CHEAT. I will be checking the spreadsheet for suspicious activity.
  • If you click on the pictures, it will pop up a bigger image. If you want a bigger picture, click on the links in the Google Docs poll.
  • When you click on the category links below, it’ll take you directly to that category.
  • If you have questions or need clarifications, feel free to ask them and I will answer. :)
  • Voting ends Saturday, December 10, 2016 12 PM PST.
