Question:  Do you have any favorite covers or ones that didn’t work for you and why?

Sara M who said...
I will admit, covers are a big part of my reading experience. The reviews I write on my blog are split into four categories: plot, pace, characters, and cover. Because these are the make or break factors of a book for me.

The one book that I've picked up solely for the cover: Wither by Lauren DeStefano (which I ended up really enjoying even though it's outside of my genre preferences).

And some of my favorite covers are ones that include a lot of relevant details to the plot: Spider's Bite by Jennifer Estep and Tempest Rising by Nicole Peeler.

Germline (Subterrene War 1) by T.C. McCarthy

Question:  Science Fiction or Science Fact?

J.K. Coi who said...
OMG this book looks fantastic! I love science fiction, it doesn't matter how much fact is thrown in, but I want even the non-factual science to sound plausible, you know?

The Doomsday Vault (Clockwork Empire 1) by Steven Harper

Question:  Do you have a favorite Steampunk novel or story?

Julie who said...
My favorite so far is Clockwork Angel, but I've got The Iron Duke and Soulless waiting on my bookshelf and I hear they're pretty good, too!

The Hunter (Legend Chronicles 1) by Theresa Meyers

Question:  Paranormal Romance, Steampunk Romance, or any kind of Romance?

Maegan Morin who said...
I like any kind of romance!! Thanks for the giveaway!

Dead Mann Walking (Hessius Mann 1) by Stefan Petrucha (signed)

Question:  Favorite novel, short story, movie, TV show with zombies?

Sariah said...

Right now I would have to say The Walking Dead. Love that show!!! Thanks for the chance.

North of Need (e-book) by Laura Kaye (International) and North of Need Trading Cards (US/Canada)

Question:  Which cover do you like better and why? How important are covers to you in making you consider and/or buy a book?

North of Need (e-book)

Denise Z who said...

I have a definite preference for the North of Need cover. It is lovely and mysterious. I want to hold it and look closer at what is not clear and try to figure out what it means. The other cover is lovely, but if I was in a bookstore I would definitely pick up North of Need to see what it was about:) Thank you for taking the time to share with us today and for the awesome giveaway opportunity.

North of Need Trading Cards

I really think both covers are awesome and Im not sure I can pick one between the two. As for importance in buying a book. The cover might make me pick it up and look at it, but unless it sounds good too I wont buy it based on cover alone.

Seed by Rob Ziegler

Question:  Which post-apocalyptic or dystopian novel would you recommend?

TheGirlOnFire who said...

I just finished The Eleventh Plague by Jeff Hirsch and really enjoyed it. I would definitely recommend it!

Actually, I've been creating background stuff for writing my own novel, and my main character is Evan.

Hot Vampire Kiss / Hot Vampire Seduction (e-books):

Gena R who said...

Oh wow, I've just added your books to my TBR list. They sound awesome!

I'd also use a combination of my son's names of Challan and Seth - Something like Chaleth perhaps. It's different, anyway!
