COOLEST contest EVAH.

I wasn't planning on posting today, but when I saw this contest, I just had to share.

Wendy Higgins is a hosting a COVER ADAPTION CONTEST. And I seriously think this will be SO much fun.

Wendy's debut novel, Sweet Evil, hit the shelves one month ago. She's an extremely talented author and is an equally awesome person.

Here are the deets from Wendy's site:



Recreate any Young Adult or Middle Grade book cover!  



  • You may submit up to three digital still shots. Up to three entries per person - they can be the same cover or differing ones.
  • By "recreating" I mean it has to show some similarity to the actual cover, although you can feel free to elaborate and get creative.
  • Email your entries to wendyhigginswrites@gmail.com and then comment on this post so that I know you entered (be sure to include your blogger screen name in the email so I can keep track of who is who)
  • Deadline for entries is June 10th - that doesn't give you much time, so get busy!
  • I will choose the top entries and post them to my blog by June 15th.  
  • The final winners will be chosen through public voting in the comments.
  • Prizes include: a signed copy of Sweet Evil, signed bookmarks, autographed bookplate stickers, and Sweet Evil T-shirts similar to the ones worn in these pics.

Here's one example from the lovely Wendy herself:



     
So FUNNY, yes???? So who's going to participate? Spread the word! I know I'm going to get a kick out of this!

Red. Head. Out. :D
