The How to Lead a Life of Crime Cover Contest WINNER!

This was a hard decision. There were several entries that I really loved. But, having discussed the matter with my publisher and various esteemed colleagues, there seemed to be one that rose above the rest. Congrats, Katie! The cover of my latest book will be . . .

Congratulations, Katie!!! :D It's a great cover-I would totally buy that book. ;)

(Also, I'm alternating between offense and relief that my entry was never shown. I suppose it's good that no one had to bear witness to it's ugliness!)

Dang, that's wonderful. Well done, Ms Katie!

I sort of liked the ones with integrated crime scene tape elements myself, but then again I'm not judging this contest. There were some REALLY good entries.

My favorite fictional joke with crime scene tape was the comic book artist/writer who illustrated one panel where the authorities had sealed off an area with rounds of "PARANORMAL EVENT IN PROGRESS" tape. I'd be tempted to get a batch of that printed up for Halloween decorations, except that would blow my Halloween decorating budget for the remainder of this decade and all of next decade.
