The TOUCH OF POWER cover art contest was another popular post with 160 votes and comments. I read through them all and tallied the votes.
It should be no surprise that the UK version won with 102 votes! Everyone thought the UK cover was eye catching and showed Avry as a powerful figure with the lightning coming out from her hands and her billowing cloak. For those who haven't seen the animated edition of this cover - you can either see it here in my "What a Week" blog or go to my website: http://www.mariavsnyder.com/UK.php (PS: I just updated my website).
Second place goes to the USA cover with 32 votes. Those who voted for it, thought it was pretty and looked like a fantasy novel, invoking a sense of mystery.
Third place goes to the Australia/NZ cover with 26 votes. The voters liked the colors - they seemed warming and enticing, invoking the healer aspect of the story.
I found all the comments very interesting and thank everyone for voting! Having visited both AU and UK, and then looking at their covers - it's amazing that they reflect my impressions of those visits. It's hard to describe, but they match my feelings.
And now for the 2 winners.......Congratulations go to:
