You all probably know by now how much I love my cover for The Boys of Summer. Artist Reese Dante did an amazing job, practically reading my mind when it came to choosing the elements I wanted to evoke the misty reflection on the past that is central to the story.
I’ve been delighted to watch this cover’s progress through the voting in this year’s Rainbow Cover Art Awards and now The Boys of Summer has reached the forth and final round of competition! Now, I know it has nothing to do with me, but I can’t help but be excited on behalf of my cover!
You must vote for three covers in each of the two divisions (Illustrated and Designed Covers) and leave a comment (which are screened). In parallel voting, a panel of judges will also supply their input to come up with the final winners.
How exciting is that? Now run, check out the pretty and VOTE for your favorite cover art!
While you are there, you should check out the month long celebrations that are going on as a run up to the 2013 Rainbow Awards announcements in December. The Boys of Summer is a finalist in these awards, and I have to say, it is truly an honor to be listed among such great books this year. As part of the pre-Awards party, there are book giveaways from every finalist in the Awards, as well as scavenger hunts and ‘guess the excerpt’ contests. Go check it out and have some fun while we’re all excitedly waiting for the final winner’s list!
