Mid-Century Mayhem Sunburst Clock Contest (And A New Cover!)

Congrats to Felicia R. for being randomly chosen to win the sunburst clock! Thanks to everyone else who participated, and if you haven't yet, sign up for my email list so you never miss another chance to win fun stuff.

You know when something seemed like a good idea at the time? Well, readers of my blog know that the cover above is different from the original of this book's release a couple of weeks ago. To wit:

Coming up with a book cover is always a tricky proposition, and while I liked the original at the time, I didn't LOVE it. So I had a new one made. And I didn't even need to go back in time to do it. 

What do you think? Terrible mistake? Huge improvement? Love/hate 'em both?

Leave a comment below (and sign up for my email list if you haven't already), and if you include your email address with your comment (for notification), I'll enter you in a fun contest for a chance to win this swank mid-century modern sunburst clock (Mid-Century Mayhem is a time travel romance, after all). 

You know you want this:

(subject to inventory--a substitution will be made if necessary)

The clock will be coming directly from Amazon, so if your name is randomly selected, I'll need your snail mail address for shipping purposes. Contest ends January 3rd. Winner will be notified Jan. 4.

And if you like contests--but not clocks so much--stay tuned for another contest in a few days with a $50 Amazon card up for grabs (another good reason to join my mailing list--never miss another of my contests and giveaways!). 

Oh, and if you haven't read Mid-Century Mayhem, but would like to for free, send me an email request and I'll shoot you a Kindle copy. Have your friends hit me up, too. And it's already free if you have a Kindle Unlimited subscription (on your new Christmas Kindle perhaps?)

So tell me what you think about the new cover--and tell time the mid-mod way!

  5. Definitely like the second cover better! It has a modern feel, yet that chair screams retro! Guess everything does come back in style - we had one of those clocks when I was a kid! LOL! Added the book to my KU reading list! fd_reevers@yahoo.com

  6. The new cover is such a vast improvement over the original, IMHO. Thanks for the giveaway. nanze55(at)hotmail(dot)com

  9. Such a beautiful cover.Since the cover is the first thing you see,great choice.We can't wait to read the story.Thanks so very much.neter8@gmail.com

  10. The cover looks better then the first one. I couldn't stand the first book cover and have wonder how did this injustice came to be on Mid-Century Mayhem. I glad you change it.

    Thanks and Happy Holidays.

  11. With the first cover, I thought I would never have picked up the book to read it. I read it because i know how your writing is and I knew I would end up loving the book. I was right, book is amazing. The cover grew on me, it made sense after reading the story. This new cover might have a better chance at grabbing readers. I think no matter what cover you choose, as long as the books following have similar covers, they will turn out great. The old cover was different, so i like it, kinda pops. Both covers fit the story. monkeycstars(at)aol(dot)com

  12. I like the new cover. It's more appealing than the first one.
    I can't wait to read it. lawrifaires@sbcglobal.net
    Blessings & Thanks.

  13. I love this clock!!!!! And I like the new cover more than the old one. The mid-century chair and dress with the broken clock in the background is fantastic. And I want to know what the medallion is for. I have seen too many orange covers lately. Definitely a better and more appealing cover.

  14. Yes, the new cover is beautiful. :) I liked the first one, too, but misread the title as "MIO Century Mayhem." It may have been the font...but I love the updated one! Awesome!

    I love the new cover! I would definitely pick that book up from the looks of the cover. The font is easier to read and I think it's overall more appealing! Great job!
