Do you have the best cover design for an indie mystery novel? Time is running out.

ref=sib_dp_kd-3For the past forty-five days, Caleb and Linda Pirtle has been sponsoring a contest to select the best book cover for an indie mystery novel, and we have seen some really creative, original, and eye-catching designs.

But I know that a lot of you are a lot like me. I am the world’s worst procrastinator. If I can put off something, I do. When the final hour begins before my final deadline, I get to work. Can’t help it. That’s just the way I am.

I know there are some really find mystery novels out there. I have seen them. I have read them. Caleb and Linda Pirtle has featured many of them on Authors Showcase. So if you have been waiting until the last minute to enter your book covers in the contest, the last minute is upon us.

Time is running out. The contest ends on January 31. It’s really easy to enter. Doesn’t take much time at all, and everyone has an extra minute or two showcase their works. All you have to do is email the cover design image to, let me know which mystery category best defines your novel, and include the name of the designer

ref=sib_dp_kd-2We are looking for cover designs in any of the following categories:

Police Procedural

Hard-Boiled or Noir

Cozy Mysteries





Romantic Suspense

Private Eye



As authors, we all know and value the importance of finding a competitive edge in the marketplace. Caleb and Linda Pirtle will be selecting finalists before announcing the Blue Ribbon winner. This is a grand opportunity to earn a badge that you can use to promote your novels and announce to the world that you have brought something special to the literary marketplace.

There are only nine days left. Don’t wait any longer. Stephen Woodfin and I want to see your book cover.
