*by COTT Sr. Editor, April W Gardner Cover Images Clashes are becoming hugely popular at the literary contest site, Clash of the Titles. Voters have been turning out by the droves to give their opinion about which cover they find most eye-catching. Their latest Clash featured three Christmas cover images, all of which would have been worthy winners. There’s just something about holiday décor that warms the heart! A book cover with Christmas dressings is no different. Here’s what hostess Gail Pallotta had to say about the three covers. “The mountain scene in A Log Cabin Christmas took away my breath and sent a peaceful feeling over me. The lovely smile on the young lady on the cover of Christmas Belles of Georgia brightened my day and spoke to me of Christmas joy. Christmas Pearl stood out and proclaimed this holy season.”
But the voters decided, and the winner of the
Christmas Cover Images Clash is:
A HEARTY CONGRATULATIONS TO BOTH THE
AUTHOR AND THE COVER ARTIST!This is what voters said about Christmas Pearl: *'Christmas Pearl' simply struck me as beautiful & I sank right in as I read the blurb. *I think all three are charming, but 'Christmas Pearl' does it for me! *"Christmas Pearl" is just plain lovely. I love the way the pearl imitates a tree ornament. Very well done cover and quite evocative of Christmas. Well said! COTT is currently taking a Christmas break, but please visit January 9 for a new clash that will – literally – take your breath away! If you're an author, don’t forget to check upcoming open clashes and submit. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Clash of the Titles!!
