A 2021 Undies Awards Update

2021 is chugging along. We’re already . . . how far into the year?

The time is now to nominate books for The 2021 Undies Case Cover Awards, presented by me and Carter Higgins. What’s a case cover? This is a case cover:

Now through November 1st, 2021 we are accepting nominations* for the best case covers of books publishing in 2021.

In November, Carter and I will announce shortlists in a variety of categories and then we’ll open up the polls. The winner will be decided by popular vote (see also: you). We’ll announce the winners shortly thereafter.

*To nominate a case cover for the 2021 Undies:

  1. Check out the case cover gallery we have going at Carter Higgins’s website – if the case cover you want to nominate is already there, no need to nominate it again.
  2. Make sure your nomination was published in 2021.
  3. If the case cover you want to nominate is NOT in the gallery and WAS published in 2021, take a picture and send it to Carter at hello (at) carterhiggins (dot) com. Put THE UNDIES in the subject line.

Anyone (including publishers) can nominate.

Let’s celebrate some wonderful case covers.
