* A note from the coordinator: My apologies for my admin error in leaving  off the ineligibility of self published titles from the initial blog post and causing confusion and frustration. It had been updated later the same day to reflect this.  I realise this is disappointing but it follows RWA’s current definition of published. Thank you for understanding. *

A note from the blogmistress: Only RWA members can vote officially on this contest, so the pages are password protected.  But if you are a non-member and you see a cover above that you particularly fancy, by all means say so in the comments.  If we get a consensus of approval in the comments, we might make a special category! 😉
