The votes are in and the winner of the 2014 Debut Author Challenge COVER OF THE YEAR is The Stolen by Bishop O'Connell from Harper Voyager Impulse. The cover artist and designer is Tom Egner with Patricia Barrow as the second designer.
There was a quite a battle between The Stolen and Lemongrass Hope by Amy Impellizzeri, but The Stolen edged out its greatest competition by 6 votes! We don't use statistical ties at The Qwillery. To tie each cover has to have exactly the same number of votes (see 2012 Debut Author Challenge Cover Wars - 2012 COVER(s) OF THE YEAR!)
Cover Wars started as a way to recognize and celebrate the talented individuals who bring books to life with their eye-catching covers. While I may not judge a book by its cover, a terrific cover will certainly make me want to know what is on the inside.
