Judge a Book By Its Cover….

Several weeks back I decided to enter the cover of my first book, The Catcher and the Lie, in an RWA Chapter Contest. The Houston Bay Area Chapter runs a yearly contest where booksellers from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand select the top cover in a variety of categories.


Today the results were announced…and my cover placed fourth in the contemporary series category.  Considering the fact that almost every single cover that won or placed in the top five came from huge publishing houses (Silhouette, Kensington, Dorchester) — I’m pleased as punch!


Here’s a link if you want to check it out!
