Re: Just curious...
Most of the covers are the ones in the main literary contest and they automatically went in the initial round of this contest. The literary contest was open (submissions lasted 6 months and closed on Sep 15), no fees were requested but only few authors from Amber Quill Press submitted:
Angelia Sparrow & Naomi Brooks - Alive On The Inside
Anne Brooke - The Hit List
K.C. Kendricks - Tango in the Night
Lynn Lorenz - No Good Deed
P.A. Brown - Lynx Woods
P.A. Brown - Memory of Darkness
Rick R. Reed - The Blue Moon Cafe
Other than here I promoted the contest on FaceBook and Amber Quill Press is in my circle of friends, plus I wrote to their review coordinator, so it's not that I didn't reach out for them. I think they chose to let authors to submit rather then submitting as publishers.
Some cover artists chose to submit the cover even if the book was not in contest and so did some publishers. Again submissions were open and free, but I have never received any request from Amber Quill. I even did an exception with A.J. Llewellyn's cover for Amber Allure, he asked if he could submit the cover after the contest was already at round 3 and that is the reason why it's listed at the end of round 4, I accepted it. But now we are at round 4, plenty of promotion behind it, and now I think it's a little late to submit, it would be not fair for the other covers that didn't pass the previous round.

Looking back at the ones I chose (I did them section by section just as you listed them) I notice that I seem to have a favorite "type" of cover, a favored style. And a lot of them are by Anne Caine. Funnily enough, some of the ones I absolutely dislike are by Anne Caine, too.

@bugchicklv perfect par condicio then :-)

On this regard I'd like to remember that this is a COVER contest. I'd like for people to try to vote considering the covers, not the authors or the story. If we have a cover we like, atop a book we like by an author we like, than that is the perfect combination. But it can also happen that a good cover is atop of a bad book... in any case we need to vote it, this is a cover contest, the literary contest is in parallel but separate way.

5 of the books I've never even read; it's the cover that attracted me. And I loved the cover on a book that I completely hated.

@bugchicklv

Thank you bugchicklv. My comment was not specifically for you, you happened to be the last to comment ;-) but thank you for showing other how things should be done.

How'd you set the entry limits? Entries didn't close til the 15th, but there have been several rounds already.. I noticed, of course, because Tangled Web isn't in here at all and it is entered as a book. Though with all the gorgeous covers... I wasn't expecting that cover to make a later round.

I have that same dichotomy with Anne Cain's work. I love her realistic paintings but don't care for the yaoi-style stuff. (I'm sure for some it's the other way around.)

Tangled Web was in round 1 and if I remember well also round 2. I think it didn't pass to round 3. Yes indeed there are many covers this year and unfortunately there were some "excellent" losses.

Oh--I thought they all stayed up until they all came down. No surprise, then. Thanks!

For the literary contest yes, all the books are in contest until the end. The Cover Contest is a fun competition, a popularity contest to allow people to "partecipate" to the Rainbow Awards while judges read the books.

Maybe I just missed it, I'm confused. How does this contest work?

Re: ?
It's a popularity contest for the best cover (not the book). The literary contest is based on the books and a jury is reading all of them. This one instead is a poll, we started with more than 500 covers, people can vote as many covers as they like and each week the covers with more votes go to the next round. Round 14, the last round will have only 10 covers, the finalists. The covers are divided in slot, but they are listed alphabetically, there is not contest inside the slot, you can check even all the cover of the same slot, the number of votes are computed in the total poll.

Re: ?
How many covers are removed each week? what I mean is, there are 515 covers this week; how many will there be next week?

Re: ?
It depends on how many same votes position I have but ideally the rounds should be:
515
400
300
250 - Round 4
200
150
100
75
50
40
30
25
20
15
10

and this week you have 250 (Round 4). The numbers remains the same since you can vote the covers using the n°, but there are not all the initially covers and numbers.
