Thank you to everyone who nominated covers for the 2013 contest and to everyone who voted in the online contest in May. Thank you to the Category Chairs and the contest committee for all of their work this year. The results are now online and ready for their debut. See how the sixty finalists fared in public voting and see which covers captured the top spot in their category. Make sure you visit each category page and read the always interesting voter comments.
If you have any general contest comments, please leave them in the comment section below. Thank you for being a fan of Cover Cafe’s annual romance cover contest. We’d love to know if you enjoyed the results and how you feel about the voters’ top choices for 2013.

Thank you so much for sending me the link to the Cover Cafe results, I really enjoyed looking through them. (the “Worst Cover” comments were so funny!) Of course, I wish Kinuko had won in her category, but second is good, and the cover that did win was beautiful, a very deserving winner indeed. I posted the link on my Facebook page. Thank you, I’ll look forward to voting in the contest again next year! All best wishes, Freda
