The winners and bingo numbers!

Well, an amazing amount of votes – 777 votes! – we’ve finally got our winners for NovelScribe’s first round of Best Book Cover Awards! There were a lot of beautiful and intriguing covers to choose from, and we are surprised you all were even able to do so. We know we couldn’t! And, because we appended our affiliates code to the links to Amazon, we also noticed that some of you got sales! :D

We’ve sent out the badges to the winners of the competition, and now, we are officially announcing them. Here they are!

(Please note: the covers have been linked to the author’s book on Amazon. Clicking them will open a new window/tab to Amazon for you to ogle them there.)

1st Place – Fantasy: Gnit-Wit Gnipper and the Perilous Plague by T.J. Lantz

Many, many thanks to all the authors who submitted their covers and to those who participated in the voting in this competition. We’d also like to send hearty appreciation and kudos to the cover artists/designers of each cover. It could not have been as successful without any of you! And because the first round was such a hit, we will be continuing this competition again soon – but with different genres. Keep an eye out on this site and the main site – http://www.novelscribe.com – for more news!

And now, for the bingo numbers! We used www.random.org/integers to generate these numbers. Here they are:

Action & Adventure: B – 12
Romance: I – 20
Fantasy: N – 37
Science Fiction: G – 57
Paranormal & Supernatural: O – 63

OK, that’s it! Check your cards and see whether or not you’ve won a bingo! And remember to READ THE BINGO SECTION OF THE FAQ first before you submit anything. If you have not sent in the information in the required format, your submission will be disregarded.

Welcome!

Welcome to NovelScribe’s Best Book Cover Awards!

What is the Best Book Cover Awards (or BBCA for short)?

We’ve constantly heard ‘never judge a book by its cover.’ However, unfortunately, that’s what most of us readers do when we’re on the hunt for our next greatest read. Many authors have become mindful of this and have taken great pains (and deep plunges into their bank accounts) to afford a great book cover that looks both captivating and professional. So, to reward those lovely individuals who provide us with hours of inexpensive entertainment, we have constructed a fun competition where readers get to judge which book cover looks the best.

We have created five genres: Action & Adventure, Romance, Fantasy, Science Fiction, and Paranormal & Supernatural. There will be 15 book covers in each genre for readers to vote on. There will be five winners at the end of the competition: Best Book Cover in Action & Adventure, Best Book Cover in Romance, Best Book Cover in Fantasy, Best Book Cover in Science Fiction, and Best Book Cover in Paranormal & Supernatural. Each winner will receive a fancy schmancy trophy to show off to everyone, and major bragging rights. Judging by the interest of this round, we may or may not have a sixth winner which will allow voters to choose the best of book covers from the five winners.

But that’s not the end of the fun! After the competition is over, each book cover that has won in its genre will receive a random number.  With these five numbers we will play a bingo game. Every other day prior to the announcement of the BBCA winners, we will post up a new bingo card for a free download. You can download one, two, or ALL of the bingo cards if you’d like to increase your chances of winning. The first person to get all five numbers straight across in a line that spells ‘BINGO,’ and who runs screaming to our inbox about it, will win USD $100!

Seriously. Doesn’t this sound like fun? If yes, check out our FAQ to learn more about how to submit your book, and how to play BBCA Bingo!
