Dear All,

I am so excited to share with you that my collection of erotic short stories “Boudoir stories” is almost ready for print!  But – one key element is still missing – a book cover; and I’d like to ask for your help in choosing the best book cover for this new collection of erotic stories!

This is a very, very important contest for me, as book covers are incredibly powerful.  It’s the first glimpse into what’s inside.  Whether erotica or not, a book cover should be titillating and alluring and should invite the reader in.  It can make or break someone buying the book, and a good book cover should make you want that book.

So, I have two amazing covers for you to choose from, created and designed by Monashee Photography, who happened to do the cover of Where Daffodils Grow Wild, and has now also created the cover for my upcoming book Willow Wisp.

So here’s the deal…  Help me choose a book cover, and WIN one of three prizes: a $100 USD gift certificate for Amazon & the book; a set of all Madison Lake books, or all three books in the series A Cloud of Hawthorne.

To take part, simply:
1) LIKE Madison Lake’s Facebook page, and LIKE this post on Facebook.
2) Leave a COMMENT, telling us which book cover you prefer, and why.
3) TAG a person you would love to read this book with, give it to, or think she/he would have fun reading it!

*Contest ends on Monday 11 May, noon CET time. We will announce the winners on my Facebook page on Tuesday, 12 May at noon CET.

Happy Spring!
