Holey moley! The Timid Monster team just got back from Nashville where we screened Avarice at the 2013 UtopYA con, a convention exclusively for female authors of young adult sci-fi/fantasy books (think Twilight and Hunger Games).

We knew going in it wouldn’t be as big as some of the other events we’ve been to, but what we weren’t expecting is the level of awesome we found in the authors present. Every single one of them was a humble, hard-working, ridiculously talented author, many of whom did their own graphic design and book trailers.

We wanted to do something special to celebrate all the talent and creativity, so we decided to hold a “Judge a Book by Its Cover” contest. We snapped photos of all the best book covers we could find and we’re turning the judging over to you, dear readers. Just jump on our UtopYA Photo Album on Facebook and “like” all your favorite covers.

The author whose book cover gets the most likes by Wednesday, July 3rd at 11:59 pm central wins a Timid Monster prize package and internet fame.

So get to it! The clock’s-a-tickin’!
