What do you think? I think our readers have good eyes for covers. Thanks, Bigfoot and Julie Larios!


  1. How cool to see them altogether. I’m looking forward to the covers of 2012.

  2. I'm reading Wildwood right now because I picked it off the shelf in awe of the cover. Carson Ellis is an amazing illustrator! Just wait till you crack it open and see the what's inside...
