NZ Book Cover War – Heat 1

Thanks to everyone who voted in my first NZ Book Cover War.  The winner, with 50% of the votes, was Ransomwood by Sherryl Jordan.  Scholastic NZ deserve a huge congratulations for choosing such an appealing cover.  2nd was Red Rocks, 3rd was Steel Pelicans, and 4th was Drover’s Quest.

That’s all for Heat 1 of my Book Cover Wars.  Heat 2 and the Finals will be held in November, to choose the top International and NZ book cover of 2012.

The winner of the signed copy of The Serpent’s Shadow is Jason.
