Thank YOU all for your participation! Mariam was VERY impressed with all the entries and even had a hard time choosing one for the third place winner, so there was a tie! I appreciate you all working hard on your covers and can't wait to see your future cover contest creations.
Okay, now for the winners...
First Place Winner:
Yiota @ Splash Of Our Worlds
Mariam's Response: The colors here are just intoxicating, and the whole atmosphere, plus her clothes - the middle-eastern feeling..do I have to explain? It's simply perfect. Bravo.
You Won: ARC or E-Book of Rosie (depending on your choice.)
Second Place Winner:
Mariam's Response: Her eyes. I stopped thinking when I saw her eyes - the exact same eyes I pictured for Alessandra. Also, as a Photoshop addict myself, I have to say that it's pretty neat. It's just, so simply, amazing.
You Won: An exclusive, electronic set of 'extras' about the background stories of the main characters.
Third Place Winners:
Amelia @ The Authoress + Kare @ Epic Book Nerd's entry
Mariam's Response: Well, you see, there's a tie here. They're both going to win. I just couldn't choose! Amelia's because, well, it's just so..innocent, if that makes any sense. It leaks of innocence. I love that - it's just so Sandra. & Kare's because it's cute - so cute it's irresistible. The choice of fonts and colors and model photo just go awesomely well with each other. I love it!
You Both Won: An exclusive, electronic set of 'extras' about the background stories of the main characters.
I'll be e-mailing you all once this post goes up! Thank you again for all your entries!!
