Welcome to the most exciting and exclusive event to ever happen at The Bookette: The Song Quest cover public vote!
Back in March 2010 I blogged about the fact that one of my favourite books was out of print. I thought it was a travesty, I really did. I told the blogosphere that I wanted Song Quest by Katherine Roberts back in print and the blogosphere listened. My heartfelt thanks go to the lovely Non at Catnip Books for reading my post and being my very own "Jim'll fix it!" Soon Song Quest will be able to take pride of place in my school library. The release date is scheduled for February 2012. But Song Quest's journey is not quite complete. Catnip, Katherine and I need your help. Catnip have commissioned two possible covers for Song Quest. Here they are:
As you can see the background colour really creates a sense of atmosphere about the book and because we love them both, Non has bravely said that you *yes, you* can make the final choice. What an exclusive opportunity to have a direct impact on the publishing industry! I cannot believe that I have been lucky enough to be involved in this process.
So here’s what we need you to do:
We need you to cast your vote for the cover of your choice. You have just one week to have your say. The voting will close on Friday 16th September 2011 at 6pm.
To make the voting as easy as possible, we'd like you to follow this link to Facebook and like your favourite: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150362183725861.395807.313172075860&type=1
Of course, I'd love to hear your reactions to both covers in the comments but it will be the Facebook votes that count.
You have all been very supportive of my mission and so before it finally is complete, I ask you one last thing: Tweet this, Facebook it, blog about it, whatever you can really. The more people that hear about this public vote, the more people will hear about this enchanting book and perhaps they will even come to understand how brilliant blogging can be.
A special thanks to Katherine, Non and Liz for EVERYTHING!
