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.
Best Book Cover
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.
INK: Fine Lines by Bella Roccaforte
Latecomer Bella Roccaforte gave everyone a run for their money! Her soon to be released book, INK: Fine Lines garnered a hearty 86 votes, besting her nearest rivals by over 20 votes. Go Bella, go!
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.
