Just wanted to announce that TWO speculative fiction books won the ECPA BEST COVER AWARD! The Evangelical Christian Publishers Association (ECPA) announces the winners at its annual meeting.
First up is Andrew Peterson’s book “On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness“, which won the award for a mid-sized publisher.
WaterBrook/Multnomah published the book. The cover was designed by Mark D. Ford, Sr. Art Director, and illustrated by Justin Gerard of Portland Studios.
Way to go, Andrew! Couldn’t have happened to a more deserving author and musician! BTW – I encourage everyone to visit Andrew’s “Rabbit Room” website where he and a bunch of other authors and musicians blog. Great site!
Next up is Ted Dekker’s spooky book, “Adam“, which won the large publisher category. Now some may argue this is a thriller and not speculative fiction, and they may be right. But Ted has a penchant for the spiritual battle, and I’m guessing here that this book at least edges into the speculative fiction/paranormal realm.
Thomas Nelson published this book. The cover was designed by Tim Green, The DesignWorks Group and Mark Ross, Art Director.
I wrote a post about an interview with Ted Dekker that I encourage everyone to read.
Also, my thanks go to Sally Stuart for blogging about these awards!
