I look at books, first, based on the cover. I feel that if the author puts enough effort into their book to try to grab my attention with the cover, then they will have put a lot of effort into their story. I began reading at a very young age, so it takes a lot for the book to get my attention.
So, we're going to vote on book covers. I'm going to put up a series of book covers that have appealed to me, and you get to choose the winners:) I would also ask that you email me with great book covers that you have spotted.
Stop by tomorrow for the first 5, which we will call Blow Out Book Cover Tuesdays, and make it a weekly theme:)
Answer one or more of the poll questions below and be entered to win! Leave a comment or email and let me know that you voted. Follow this blog, follow me by email, or follow me on Twitter or Facebook. Any of these enters you into the contest:) Winners will be picked August 31, and we're giving away 10 copies!

This was a powerful story and I really enjoyed it. Set in 1871, in Wyoming, this is the story of Mandy, who is fighting to save her ranch from the local bad-guy, McCandle, who wants her ranch and plans to marry her to get it. For years, Mandy has had visions of the man that she will marry and it is not McCandle, it is Hawk.

Dark Warrior: To Tame a Wild Hawk is a historical romance with paranormal elements that drew me in from the very first sentence. I'm into paranormal romance bit time, usually because I love to read about paranormal creatures, but here it was the beautiful writing and voice that grabbed me from the start and didn't let me go until the very end.
When I chose my writing name, I did not realize at first that the wolf had returned to me. I am a Jaguar Witch. And as a child, my parents had owned a wolf. The wolf had been a part of my family for much of my childhood. At first the wolf had come in Taku, a male, half-wolf--half-malamute. Later, they came through the malamutes, but they came because my childhood was so unbearable to me that I nearly willed myself to die at 6 years old. And they came because they were my family, to teach me about family. To teach me what my parents could not.
I have kept my solitary practice private, until now. But with the birth of this book, I feel compelled to come forward. And so I am pleased to announce that the website I have sat on for nearly two years, Goddess Cove, is now coming to light.
But I'm going to need a lot of help. I need all the Daughters of Goddess of the world, and her sons, too, to step forward. I need those who would help to run this site in whatever manner you are blessed to do well. We will put up articles, build on the Book of Shadows, and even stalk the Magical Cupboard. We will do whatever each of us are moved to do.
And we I invite all the pagan authors to come and place links to your books on this site.
The Great Mother is moving us, though each of these books to become keys in our consciousness, to awaken a remembering in each of us.
