  1. Some great covers there, I think the winner's cover is absolutely awesome, however it was a close call!

  2. It was challenging to pick just one winner.

    1. Little known fact, and I SWEAR it had no bearing on the final choice, my maiden name is Brannan. :-)

    1. Our pleasure Suzy. It was a squeeker this month. These two honourable mentions were so close.

    2. Three lovely covers - glad I'm not judging this!

  6. Congratulations to the winner - stunning cover. What a nice surprise however, getting an honourable mention for the cover of The Eye of the Falcon, and included in runner-up. Credit for the cover however has to go to Rachel Lawston - a cover designer who makes sure that the cover really reflects the story inside the book.

  7. Our pleasure Joan. As I mentioned to Suzy, it was a squeeker this month. The two honourable mentions were close runners up. So lovely of you to give credit to your designer. (We, as designers, love that. Warms the heart)
