Holy macaroni! UtopYA Con was Team Timid Monster’s first experience with the insane world of female authors of young-adult fiction. Fortunately for us, it was a good insane.

We figured, like any con, there would be some passionate fans and authors…what we were unprepared for was how utterly welcoming, kind, and generous everyone was. Not that normal con-goers aren’t, but there was elevated energy at UtopYA that has since overflowed into our lives.

That’s an unnecessarily flowery way of saying it, but hey, there you go.

ANYWAY!

So, to honor all the awesome authors we met, we decided to throw a little “Judge a Book by Its Cover” contest on our facebook page. Hundreds of votes from fans later, we have the results:

Drrrrrrrrrumroll, please!

Evanescent by Addison Moore

This rosy book cover mustered a staggering number of votes, creating a clear lead for New York Times, AND USA Today, AND Wall Street Journal bestselling author Addison Moore. Heck, we’re insanely flattered she even took part in our pokey little game. That Addison is a real class act.

Defiance by C. J. Redwine

This cover is poorly represented online; you have to hold the book in your hands to truly appreciate it. There’s a shimmering reflective finish that highlights facets and details of the design like a jewel. The text is raised and feels bold under your fingertips. Seeing this book in person is in itself an experience that sets the tone for the story contained within.

Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of Defiance on Amazon, and while you’re at it, pay a visit to C. J. Redwine on Facebook.
