Compared to number of votes in last year's contest we had an increase in all categories, from 56% in the Series category to 91% in Romantic Suspense. Wow! We want to thank all of you so much for participating and voting in the contest!!

    Thanks to the coverballot committee for your hard work throughout the year, and to all the readers, authors, publishers and cover artists who nominated covers and voted in the contest. I'd also like to thank Karen, Jeanette, and my co-chair Jo-Ann. You've been a great help throughout the year, and now with preparing commentary on results pages, and making logos. I couldn't have done it without you!

    We are already starting to work on next year's contest, so please keep the nominations coming!

    The award image below is sent to the authors of the winning covers in all categories except for Worst. However, the award is available upon request to the winner of the Worst category since some authors also feel that's a unique honor!

    Winner in the 2007 Cover Café Contest!
