Let the #Mystery Cover Wars Begin (Round 1)

I am changing it up again. Last month I introduced the idea of moving away from just putting two covers against one another. Instead several covers go head-to-head. This month I am taking that to the next logical progression. All the covers are being introduced in this first round. By the last week of the month we'll have just two covers battling it out.

Before we get to the covers, aren't you curious who won the Fantasy Cover Wars? Yeah, I thought so. Nefertiti's Heart by A.W. Exley won with a whopping 91% of the vote.

OK, now on to current business.

We're starting this first round with 15 covers. Next week there will only be 8, knocking out 7 covers. Across the room they go! After that, two covers will be "voted off the island" each week. So, week 3 will have 6 covers, and week 4 will have 4 covers (semi-finals). Week 5 is the finals. Who will make it, and who will go home crying?

You decide.

Let's meet the hopefuls

Because 8 covers are making it to the next round, 
you can vote for your 8 favorite covers.

Which is your favorite?

The Mystery Scavenger Hunt has an entry option for this round of the Mystery Cover Wars. You have to play the actual hunt first, and then the option to vote for your favorite cover becomes available ... at the very bottom. Why should you do this? Because voting for your favorite cover will earn you 5 chances at winning one of several gift cards.

And I just might tally this secondary vote, and who knows ... we might have two winners at the end of the month.
