2012 Debut Author Challenge Cover Wars - 2012 COVER(s) OF THE YEAR!

After an incredible 1189 votes over a two week period the results are in and ... it's a tie! Two novels from Angry Robot Books tied for first place with 492 votes each.  (I'd like to have a word with Angstrom A. Robot about this!)

I think this is simply a testament to Angry Robot's dedication to having wonderful covers for their novels.  It also has much to do with the fans for both Chris F. Holm's and Chuck Wendig's marvelous writing.

Cover Wars started as a way to recognize and celebrate the talented individuals who bring books to life with their eye-catching covers. While I may not judge a book by its cover, a terrific cover will certainly make me want to know what is on the inside.

Amazing15 and Joey Hi-Fi created spectacular covers for Dead Harvest and Blackbirds respectively.  Congratulations to both for being the Winners of the 2012 Debut Author Challenge Cover Wars - COVER OF THE YEAR!
