Help us pick a 2023 Prompt!
Week Three: September 19-25, 2022
We are voting for 2023 challenge prompts and last week’s vote was (as expected) full of opinions! We can’t wait to finish tallying the final results and see who our top three author finalists are. Next month, the names of these three finalists will be placed in a hat and we will randomly draw one winner for our 2023 challenge. Keep this in mind for this week’s vote too — your choice doesn’t have to come first, it just has to make it into the top three for a chance at being picked!
This week’s prompt is all about a specific item on the cover! Keep reading to see what objects we’re voting on this week!
How this works:
1. Every Monday in September, watch for a new poll. (Be sure to sign up for e-mails so you don’t miss it!)
2. Vote for your favorite option — the one you’d most like to see on the 2023 challenge. Each week, you have up to three chances to vote. Once in the Facebook group, once in the Goodreads group, and once on Instagram. You can vote as strategically as you’d like — voting for the same option three times, or voting for a different option on each.
3. Once the poll closes, total votes will be tallied across all three platforms (Facebook, Goodreads, and Instagram.) The TOP THREE picks for each week will be named finalists and entered into the final running for the 2023 challenge.
4. In October, the winning prompt will be randomly drawn from the top three, weekly finalists. This winning prompt will appear on the 2023 challenge. (This will happen for all four of our September polls, giving us a total of four member-voted prompts for 2023!)
Week Three Vote:
Week Three voting period:
Monday, September 19, 2022 until Sunday, September 25, 2022
One of the prompts from our 2022 challenge was “a household object on the cover.” These cover-related prompts always give us scavenger hunt vibes, and we love that. In past years we’ve also had books with food, plants, and women facing away on the covers. This week, we’ve picked twenty different items or things that we’d love to see on a cover. Pick your favorite and go vote!
Not sure what to vote for? Don’t forget that prompts can always be interpreted in a variety of ways. For example: Let’s say the winning prompt is “A heart on the cover.” You could choose a book that has a heart (or hearts) as part of the cover design, the word “heart” in the title, or even a book written by an author who’s last name was “Heart” or “Hart.” You can always get creative with the prompts, and this one in particular lends itself to some creative interpretations!
Don’t forget to get your vote in by Sunday, September 19! Have friends who are considering joining next year’s challenge? Invite them to come vote too!
