STAR Crossed Covers Contest 2016

Sponsored: by SpacecoasT Authors of Romance

Our contest is unique in that judges will vote on your book’s cover and its promo blurb in combination on PINTEREST. Those carefully-worded hints about the story inside have to work with a knock-out cover to grab a reader’s attention and get them to buy your book! The judges include bestselling and award-winning Romance Authors who love to read Romance, and who better to judge the effectiveness of your cover image and well-crafted blurb? Plus once the contest is underway, you can “share” the contest and let friends view your contest entry on Pinterest.
