Deciding on which cover to keep and pay cash for is proving to be a much more difficult choice than I thought. I guess my thinking was no one would be interested in my contest. Perhaps it was doubt about the quality of work that would be presented. Some of the work did out shine the rest. A lot of it has been high quality in my eye and that has made the choice much more difficult than I thought it would be.
When the images began to take on shading and looked less like paper dolls and more like photos of real people I should have know I was in trouble. When the first one arrived I jumped for joy and the amazing clarity and beautiful picture taken from a scene in the book.
The a second image arrived and a third and fourth one came into my account. It is painful deciding which single cover is to represent the book to the whole world. Yet, that is exactly what I have to do. I thought I had decided on one, until I ran a poll on the last three choices.
My choice did win a few votes but one of the other covers took in a larger than expected number of votes. Now I wonder, do I choose that one against my favorite? Or, how about that cover that sneaked in just as the contest came to a close? Decisions, decisions how will I decide?
