I loved all of the covers! Every one was unique and special in its own way. I still don’t judge a book by its cover though 🙂 

And if you are going to design your own cover, my advice is to make your cover as unique as you are. I know a cover is supposed to represent your story, but make sure you add something special to represent who you are, whether it be the color you choose, the title, or a photo you’ve taken, make the cover your own! And last but not least here are a few helpful links.

Well that’s it. 🙂 Hugs and thank you to all who participated. I don’t know about you, but I’m going to be taking a blogging break for a couple of weeks, so I can get some much needed writing and reading done and I’ve updated all of my blogs, so if you get bored, there are plenty of things to see and do at each one! (Well, I still have one more post to finish for my newest blog)

Here are the links,
