Please bear with me I’m going to give you a few rules before my post. Then you can move on to the post. If this isn’t your first stop you can skip this because the rules are all the same at each blog. Unfortunately readers will be starting in different places so the rules are necessary. So hang tight.
We are giving away a Kindle Fire HD 7” and E-Books to go on the winner’s new Kindle. And Second prize is a 100.00 gift card to Amazon or B&N.
Winners need to be in the US or Canada to win prizes that need to be shipped. Now anyone can win the E-Books or the Kindle as long as Amazon will ship the Kindle to your country. Sorry about this but it is because of shipping cost.
Prizes will be given away daily at random. I will pop into blogs and pick winners using random.org. For a complete list of prizes follow the link to the Safari Heat site.

How Important is a Cover to Readers?
As an author and cover artist I thought I would ask the question all authors wonder about. How important is a cover to readers?
In my opinion it is your first chance as an authors to grab the readers attention. And I tell my clients that their covers need to demand the reader's attention. A bland boring cover will just be looked over.
First the readers notices the cover and then the cover draws them in to take a closer look at the author's story. Now instead of going on and on about what makes a great cover I decided to do some polls. You will find them in the right hand sidebar.
And don't forget to leave a comment with your email, did you contribute to the poll, follow on
Here are the links:
Cover Art Page: These are covers that were custom made for clients. I do all genres.
Pre-Made Covers: These are covers that have been pre-made and can be bought as is. I just add a name and title.
I would love to hear your thoughts on my work. At the end of the hop I will be giving away a 5.00 gift card to Amazon.
Don't forget to keep hopping to win some amazing prizes! Here is the link to all the hop stops. You will find the list of blogs under the rules on the Safari Heat site. Plus a full list of the great prizes we are giving away.
Don't forget to leave your mark on my polls to the right hand sidebar!
