Cover Contest: Herbology At Home

Well my wonderful Herb Lovers I have very exciting news.

I am officially an author!

Herbology At Home is the quintessential guide to all the herbal remedy formulas you’ll ever need. There is no unnecessary padding, just the important stuff and nothing but the important stuff. Written with the home user in mind, in a language that is easy to follow.

I would like to involve YOU in the process and have decided to put up a contest for the front cover. There will be 6 cover choices – I like all of them and am finding it hard to pick one.

So here is how it works – Post a comment below as to which cover you like the best. Feel free to leave  a short reason why you picked it. I’ll count the votes next week. As a thanks for your participation I will put everyone’s name in a hat and the first name I draw gets a free autographed copy of the book! If I get 50 votes or more I’ll throw a second free book in the draw 🙂

You wont be able to count the votes here, because I’ll have votes coming in via Twitter and email as well.

Here is the back cover text to tell you what Herbology At Home is about.

“Do you want to learn more about the traditions and lore we used before pharmaceuticals ran the world?

Learn age old methods of making herbal tea, tinctures, ointments, oils and much more.

Herbology at Home is a comprehensive, easy-to-follow guide to making every herbal remedy you will ever need.  Mastering these formulas is easy, so you too can learn to safely make herbal preparations for natural health and healing for the whole family.”

It’s up to you now Herb Lovers – I cant wait to see your choice!

It’s very exciting to not know the front cover that will grace your first book.

Stay herbal

    Congrats on your succes 🙂 I love the #2 and #3 covers but they truly are all just lovely. Congrats again x

  2. Hmmm…love them all, going back between 2 and 3…and let 2 be the winner!!! 🙂

  3. Jaime M. says:

    My vote is for Cover 6. The white bowl and motor and pestle on the white counter top allow both the vibrant colors of the herbs and the book title and text stand out. It looks professional and pretty.

  4. kellie says:

    All of them are nice. My number one choice is #2 but 6 is very nice too.

  5. Tabitha says:

    I like cover 6. It looks fresh, pure and clean. Cover 6 sells the idea of herbal remedies to me. I feel healthier already ; )

  6. Hi Anke – I also like 2 & 6. They are both pretty close. 2 has a slight edge as it has the fresh herbs, the process (mortar & pestle) AND the finished bottles of mixture. It incorporates the whole process

  7. Hi there,

    All the covers are great, bit I think my favourite is number 6.

    Where ever did you get such a cute mortar and pestle? *wink*


  8. Kathleen Kraemer says:

    I like cover # 2. It just grabs the eye, I think.

  9. anke says:

    Fantastic! Thanks for your votes so far…..and keep it coming 🙂

    between here and Facebook…it’s neck and neck between #2 and #6

  10. Kerry Weiss says:

    I vote for cover #6, Anke. Really sets forth the message of the book.

  11. Rastas000 says:

    White covers on a shelf tend not to stand out…

    Cover 4

    But would prefer cover 6 with anything but a white background..

  12. seanymph says:

    I like number 3 but number 2 would be my next choice. Both are nice and would catch my eye and make me want to buy.

  13. laura says:

    I love #2.

  14. Anne says:

    I like Cover #2 as well, although #3 caught my eyes as well.

  15. Amanda Dixon says:

    cover 2 – shows growing making and using – fab – ps well done on getting the book done – wonderful acheivement – our schooling couldn’t have been that bad!!! xxx

  16. congratulations anke! i love the third cover:)

  17. Skye says:

    Dear Anke, I prefer # 2 because it follows the progression from herb to bottle. Also #6 because it looks “clean”. Todo Lindo! Monica Skye.

  18. Sonya Lowe says:

    Oh Anke…I just LOVE cover No# 2.

    How exciting for you lovey, and I think it’s just gorgeous that you’ve included all us other Herbal Folk in this fashion. 🙂
    Makes us all feel a little part of something bigger.
    Good on you hon!

  19. lisa kirk says:

    i like #6 the best..its clean and simple….#2 is nice also bc it gives an idea of the steps from start to finish but #6 is the one that would catch my eye on the bookshelf….

  20. Georgia says:

    I like 2, then 1 and then 6.

  21. MadCow says:

    I like 1 & 6 – can’t decide between the two.

    Neat and clean 🙂

    The others are a bit messy and/or distracting

    Well done, you! I so proud of you 🙂

  22. Leighta says:

    I love Cover #2.

    As everyone else who voted for it said!

    Congrats! I’m so excited for you!

  23. Suzanne says:

    Wow, they’re wonderful covers. #3 is favorite, and then closely followed by #2.

  24. hjobean says:

    i like 3 the best. for the colours. the green says healing… 🙂 congratulations.

  25. glenda says:

    Cover two depicts the topics best. Attractive cover.

    Choice- Cover two!!

  26. Nikki says:

      Hi Nikki,

      unfortunately voting has ended. But if it’s any consolation, one of your choices was the winning cover 🙂
