| Sara | 2010-05-19 21:56:07 | I love Harry Potter and The Good Earth.

| Beth | 2010-05-18 08:06:44 | Beautiful! My favorite book of all time is The Stand by Stephen King. Thank you for the giveaway!

| Caroline | 2010-05-17 19:29:05 | Oh they’re gorgeous! I would love the chance to offer you feedback ;-)My favourite author would have to be Roald Dahl. I re-read Matilda so many times as a kid.

| Nadescha| 2010-05-17 09:04:44 | my absolutely favourite author is diana gabaldon – i am currently on book 7 (an echo in the bone) of her epic historical love story between jamie and claire fraser. i wish they could live forever… 🙂

| Sarah | 2010-05-17 10:23:26 | Love the butterfly cover. My favourite book for a long time was Bridge to Terabithia {long before it was a movie!} For my adult life I would say Coming Through Slaughter by Michael Ondaatje.{anything by Michael is worth reading more than once, in my humble opinion} Also Alice Munro! Thanks for the chance.

Congratulations you guys! Im so excited that my covers are being shipped all over the world – that amazes me. Yay!

And again, thank you ALL for participating. Considering it seems you really liked the idea of a bookcover, I am definitely going to experiment more with them. Ive had quite a few sketches drawn up for a while and its time i get to work!

Huzzah!
