The Ugly Covers Competition is over, but there is one more ugly cover…

    Hi Judith, in what form does the feedback need to take, ie is comments or a,blogpost etc.

    • Leeswammes says:


      It can be anything, but I’ll send the readers a short questionnaire at the beginning of December – comments is fine, about the cover and the book (like/dislike, what did you like/dislike about it).

      Something you want to take upon you? Can you read Kindle copies?

    Yes am a fairly recent convert to the church of Kindle

    • Leeswammes says:

      I almost bought one 2 weeks ago! But I decided to wait for the new one to come out. And then I thought, do I actually *need* one? 🙂

      Anyway, let me know if you want to read The Human Race on your Kindle before the end of the year, asap. 🙂

    If its not gone. Stick me down for the last place.

  5. Congrats to all the winners — an eye opener just how many ugly covers are out there. LOL

  6. Kristi says:

    Wow! I’m surprised that there aren’t more Kindle users. I don’t have a Kindle, but an app for it on my iPad and iPod touch. I’m pretty sure you can even download a free kindle reader for your PC. I’m excited to get to the book. I’m glad I got the nicer cover. 🙂 I don’t know if I’d like to have the weird one in my house with the creepy man staring at me. 🙂

  7. parrish says:

    Thanks & hopefully it will read better than it looks.
    pS. I ummed & arghed for a whole year, before getting mine – The good news is I love it. The bad news, it has added an additional way to buy more books on top of the solid copies.

    • Leeswammes says:

      Yes, that’s what I am worried about. I have quite a lot of hard copies to read, so what am I to do with an ereader except getting even more books on my TBR? 🙂

  8. Leslie says:

    I’m excited to be able to read this. The book is not available in the US at this time… I already had checked Amazon, Book Depository and my library. And since this is a scifi thriller it’s something I would read. But not because of the cover… the cover screams horror novel.

    • Leeswammes says:

      I hope it’s good. Normally I don’t feature books on my blog that I haven’t read myself, but I do own this one and it does look good. I hope to read it in the next 2 months too.

    Congratulations to the winners!

    Sorry I was too busy to vote for the ´winning´ cover. I really enjoyed this competition, and I hope you´ll come up with other brilliant ideas in the future.

    • Leeswammes says:

      Dorte, I have no brilliant ideas at the moment, except maybe for my NaNoWriMo novel (ha ha!). A beautiful cover competition isn’t quite as appealing and that’s as far as I’ve got with thinking.

I love comments! Let me know what you think.
