I recently entered the Best Book Cover contest in your writing conference. After I paid the entry fee, my money was returned with a message that I didn’t understand. It said that because I was not a member of your club, my book cover could not be included in the contest. Can you give me a better reason than that and one that makes sense to me?
Dear Cover Clueless…
Thank you for your interest in our Best Book Cover Contest. I’m sorry you didn’t understand that it was for members only. Although the Writer’s Conference is open for everyone to attend, the Book Cover Contest is one of several annual events created specifically for RRBC members. In addition to the well established support within the organization, special promotions, contests, and parties are also scheduled for the membership throughout the year. The Best Book Cover Contest is one of them. It is another benefit of RRBC membership.
You might want to consider joining the club. RRBC membership is more than an affiliation to add to a resume. It’s a supportive group of readers, writers, authors and reviewers who offer camaraderie along with a long list of other amazing benefits, including a Book Cover Contest!
Thank you for your question!
Happy reading and Best Wishes!
