e-Book Cover Design Award Winner for November 2013 in Fiction
Siri Weber Feeney submitted Fatty in the Back Seat designed by Siri Weber Feeney. “NPR essayist Prum had a distinct look in mind for Cuss, the learning-disabled protagonist — 1/2 Puck and 1/2 hopeful that he won’t go to jail in the next six months. I illustrated and designed the cover first for an e-book, then print, too. For teens on the younger end of the YA spectrum.”
JF: Fantastic, it doesn’t get any better than this. An indelible rendering of the main character could almost become a brand in itself, and the unique lettering adds a hand-crafted feeling to the cover. Leaps off the screen, a real winner.

Passive Guy was pleased to see some excellent covers from several regulars on The Passive Voice.
