VOTE FOR YOUR FAVORITE!

Okay, so I'm pretty sure I've mentioned in passing that you guys suck in the best possible way. You've made picking the winner for my bookmark contest haaaaaard. So many great (and by great, I mean fan-flipping-tastic) entries. There were well over a hundred entries. I was almost in tears trying to pick a winner. This was supposed to be fun. If not for you, then AT LEAST for me, right? Right??

Shame. On. You.

So now I'm putting the ball in your court (cliche alert! Ew). Now you must suffer with indecision. Bite your lip bloody and raw. Drink wine from the bottle with said bloody/raw lip.

However, I have made it a tidly bit easier for you. I've narrowed the contest down to the top six entries. Instead of hundreds of entries, you just have to choose between six. Easy, yes? (Insert maniacal laugh here, then the gulping sound of drinking more wine, followed by an unladylike hiccup).

Here are the rules:

1.) Vote in the comment section. (For example: Entry one. Another example: Entry two. See how it works?) I don't feel like messing with one of those poll widget things. This also gives you a chance to give praise to the finalists.


2.) If you leave a negative comment about any entries, your vote will not count, your comment will be deleted, I will secretly consider you a bad person and possibly a poor sport, other people will know that you're a jerk, and your mother will be utterly and irretrievably ashamed of you and what you have let yourself become.


3.) You may vote only once. (Because duh).


4.) All votes must be in by midnight on February 15th. Any votes posted in the comments after that deadline will not be counted. I am not responsible for what time zone you're in. I don't even know what time zone I'm in, so good luck with that.

  10. I could see why you had such a hard time choosing one,they are all really good. I vote for entry 3.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Entry 1 love the idea

    ReplyDelete
  12. Entry one with the back of entry three. Because the black portion of entry one makes it look really stylish and way beyond cool, while the back of entry three works great for your readers and readers like me who haven't read Of Poseidon yet. The synopsis would be a great addition at the back of the bookmark. Really. Hope my vote still counts!

    ReplyDelete
  13. SO MANY PRETTIES! I think you should pick them ALL! But if I had to choose one, I'd go with Entry Three. But seriously, too all who entered: they're all stunning. GREAT JOB!

    Love the synopsis on the back and the front is actually the way you look at the bookmark (AKA vertically). But they're all gorgeous! :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Entry 1
    That one is just different from the others. It got to me more then the rest. It looks like something I would use.

  31. This is hard! Something about #1 really appeals to me - the simplicity of it and contrast between the two sides, so I'm going with that one. :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. They are all gorgeous bookmarks! For me, it's a tie between number 3 and number 4. I think I'll choose number 3 though! That one is awesome! I can't wait to read the sequel!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I have to say...entry 3! SO good!

    ReplyDelete

  36. Oh my goodness, this IS hard!!! I feel for you, having had over a hundred to choose from, phew!! But, since you did all the hard work, let's see... number 3 and number 6. what?? I can only choose one?! Gah! 3, 6, 3, 6, 3, 6, .... ok, ok, **I'll go with number THREE**!!!! But seriously, the folks who made these are all incredibly talented, and I wish I could have only as much creativity as they surely have in their little fingers! Great job to all!!

    PS - I think I like 6 so much because I used to work in a library, and I love libraries, and having the ISBNs and the publisher name on there ROCKS

  43. I really love entry #6, and I think it's the tagline. The two kingdoms line and layout says to me...this is EPIC. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  44. They are all amazing, but I would have to say #6

    ReplyDelete
  45. They're all gorgeous! I'm envious of skills! :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. 6!!!! They're all gorgeous, but I think 6 is the most appropriate for what you're trying to do :D

    ReplyDelete
  49. My vote is for entry 6! Pretty!!!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I really love 5 because its so simple and the cover is so gorgeous that it doesn't need anything else around it :D

    ReplyDelete
  51. My vote goes to #6! I love the fish scale pattern going on, and the tagline.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Entry 2! Well done.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I think they're all lovely, but my favourite is number 6. I think the colours are spot on, not too mention it has the perfect combination of whimsy and professionalism. Definitely the best in my opinion.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Entry 6! It has the clearest info, very succinct, most zappy, and the scales are great.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Entry THREE! It's gorgeous! They all are, but this one is my fave!

    ReplyDelete
  56. ENTRY THREE
    Though, wait a sec...shouldnt it be "to save people she's never known"
    or "to save a person she\s never known"
    Though all look amazingly amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  61. I really like entry 3 the most, but they're all so amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Entry 6! I really love how this one stood out and added more elements to it other than the cover page, very creative :)

    ReplyDelete
  63. entry 3 though I like number one's quote

    ReplyDelete
  64. I agree with the ones that are saying 1 with the back side of 3. I think that would be perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Entry 3 is awesome. But Entry 1 and the back of Entry 3 would be cool too :)

    ReplyDelete
  66. Entry 5 - even though I love them all so much!!!!!
    Entry 3 is also pretty awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  67. Definitely 6 -- LOVE the scales and the easy-to-read, eye catching design. Wonderful job, though, everyone!!

  72. Oh man, these are all so beautiful! You're one lucky girl, Anna. ;)

    I think I'll have to go with #6 -- LOVE the ISBN inclusion, the scales motif, and the text-light, elegant design with that powerful, one-two-punch of a tagline. :D

    ReplyDelete
  73. Gah. Stinky typo. They are all INCREDIBLE. Entry 6 makes me extra swoony, though, because I do love me some blue mermaid scales. So #6!!!

    Anna, this is such a cool idea, BTW. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  74. Gah! Just realized my kid hit the wrong number and my entry was messed up! On entry SIX #6, the background makes it intricate, yet clean and beautiful #6!!! :D

    ReplyDelete
  75. I vote for ENTRY #3!!!Love it...XDD

    ReplyDelete
  76. Entry 6! Nice to see that the designer used something other than the cover.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Entry one for sure! i love it!

    ReplyDelete
  78. I love Entry 1, but where's the other side of the bookmark? If Entry 1 doesn't have a reverse side with author info, etc., then I'll have to go with Entry 4.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Wow! I can see why you found it so difficult to choose only one! They're all GORGEOUS!! I had to flip a coin for my choice between one and three (because I couldn't decide which one to pick), so my choice is numberrrrrr.....three. No, it's one...or maybe four? OK! OK! Geez, why does this have to be so hard? Fine, I'll stick with my first choice - number THREE. :D (Angie Edwards)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  81. It is so hard!! They r all good.But my vote is for entry 3 :)

    ReplyDelete
  82. I love them all! But I think my favorite is #6. The ISBN and punch line were the winning factors.

    ReplyDelete
  83. I love the clean cut design of #6!! The scales are just beautiful :)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  95. Number 3 for sure! But all the entries are amazing :D

    ReplyDelete
  96. I love # 6!! It's gorgeous. The others are pretty too!

    ReplyDelete
  97. Entry 4 it's mysterious, tells you where to go, and isn't too text heavy. Although if I could I'd buy them all!

    ReplyDelete
  98. Entry #6! The fish-scale design is so pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  99. Oh gosh, they are all so creative! I like # 1 & 3...can I do that? Well, I like ALL of them, but 1 & 3 are the best I could do at narrowing it down! Ah! Did number one have a back? I love the blending work that one has, simple and unique...I think it would work well for male and female readers! Seeing the back might help me decide lol, I'm not sure though, every last one of these entries are awesome!! GREAT job all of you!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
