Gaaaahhh!

Because I found the lousy book cover thread so negative I made a pinterest thread with the title Awesome self-published book covers and now I can't remember which book covers I found so awesome. Except one.

So post your nominations (with image and link) here and I'll pin the awesome ones.

Don't nominate your own books.

Or do you mean "covers" of awesome self-published books? *motions to guitar sitting beside me* Don't tempt me. I'll do it!  8)

That's a GREAT idea.  :)
But now, of course, I can no longer remember the ones I liked!  I'll have to go look for them.

Yes, I saw that. Did leave a bad taste in my mouth too.

Yes, I've been on KB all day, so I got that. ;-) Was just giving you a hard time!

I think you tend to like the covers of the genres you read, so I'm not sure I could judge whether covers of the other genres are good, or not. But I suppose you can like them even if they are not considered to be 'good' covers by those in the graphic design and cover industry  :-\.

Not really. A lot of these are urban fantasy/paranormal, which I don't read.

Actually the genre I read most is not even represented here. I'm going purely by pretty pictures and yet of course this will be biased.

I'll list non-fiction covers, too.

(I read mostly hard SF)
