Email from Blake Morrow - winning artist for 2010 SE - Under the Marshall's Protection:
Awesome! I am sincerely thrilled! That is one of my favorite covers I've ever worked on, and the art director, Bill Laughton, is a personal friend of mine. He is an extremely talented person to work with. I always find it exciting when a series cover, with no people in it, gets so much fantastic feedback. Thanks again! Blake

Thank you so much for sending me the link! I was away on holiday when your email arrived, but it was a lovely surprise to come home to the news that the Blood on Silk cover had done so well in the contest. Many thanks for running this contest! Best Wishes, Marie
