2012 Debut Author Challenge Cover Wars - April 2012

It's time for the 2012 Debut Author Challenge Cover Wars for April 2012!

As part of this year's Debut Author Challenge I thought it would be fun to choose a favorite cover from each month's debut novels. At the end of the year the 12 monthly winners will be pitted against each other to choose the 2012 Debut Novel Cover of the Year. Please note that a debut novel cover is eligible in the month in which the novel is released in the US.

January 2012  Winner - Control Point (Shadow Ops 1) by Myke Cole. Cover Art by Mike Komarck.

February 2012 Winner - Dead Harvest (The Collector 1) by Chris F. Holm. Cover Art by Amazing 15.

March 2012 Winner - The Company of the Dead by David Kowalski, Cover Art by Amazing 15.

For March you have 8 covers to choose from.


  1. Blackbirds is a beautiful cover. Beautiful.

  2. I'm going with COVETED with Paul Marron on the cover.

  3. I think BLACKBIRDS is the stand out winner here.

  4. Definitely Blackbirds. Is it just me or is the pose of the lady on The Summoning look really uncomfortable and unnatural?

  5. Voted for Blackbirds, but quite like White Horse as well. Faustus is attractive but suffering from "what the hell am I looking at" syndrome.
