Happy New Year! | Plus :: The Winner of our 1st Book Cover of the Year award is...

Happy New Year!

Here's wishing you the best year ever. Hope you achieve your dreams and have a happy and healthy 2012. Who knows what the future will hold, but let's hope it's a good one!

Thanks for making it so special! 

I've been so busy over this holiday period, (although it has been a lot of fun) I'm actually looking forward to getting everyone back to work and school, so I can get back into my usual routine (and have a rest!)  ;)

Today I am very happy to announce the winner of alternative-read's first ever Book Cover of the Year Award where all the winning covers from 2011 were added to a new poll for readers to vote on their favourite overall winner. 

And the winner is.... with 593 votes (36%) --  Lark LaTroy with his book cover Druids Dawning designed by the talented Reese Dante!  Congratulations!

Book Blurb: "A serial killer stalks the streets of present day Boston. A group of Druids must find a way to stop him, or see the whole world plunged into chaos."

In addition, since it was so close I do feel Farsighted with 516 votes (31%) and Flesh Fantasy with 415 votes (25%) both deserve an honourable mention! (All the final stats are below for those interested in figures).
