Win a Copy of Maya and the Crystal Skull

Welcome to Writing Children's Books with Robyn Opie Parnell and thank you for visiting.

Earlier this year, my novel Maya and the Crystal Skull was released by R & R Books Film Music.
Maya and the Crystal Skull is the first book in a series for confident readers aged 9 and older. 

Early in 2013, the second book in the series will be released. The second novel is Maya and the Daring Heist. More on the story later. 

Right now, I'm hoping you can do me a favor and help me choose a cover for Maya and the Daring Heist. I have five alternatives, which makes a decision difficult for me. If you let me know your choice of cover either in the comments or via email, I'll greatly appreciate your feedback. 

Maya and the Daring Heist is a children's book, so please ask your children to add their vote either in the comments or via email.

To make this activity more interesting, I'm giving away a copy of Maya and the Crystal Skull to a lucky person who votes on the cover by leaving a comment or sending me an email. My husband will randomly choose a winner from the comments/emails on 4 August 2012.

In my opinion, a series should have a consistency in appearance. So to help you pick a cover for the second book, here is the cover for the first one Maya and the Crystal Skull.

To further help you, Maya and the Daring Heist sees our lovely heroine Maya King once again caught up in the adventure of a lifetime when a priceless crystal skull is stolen from the British Museum and Maya is unwittingly used by the thieves to smuggle the crystal skull out of England. When Maya realizes she has a stolen crystal skull in her possession, she wants to return the priceless artifact to the British Museum. The thieves are intent on stopping Maya at any cost.  

Now over to the potential covers for Maya and the Daring Heist.

Cover 1
Cover 2

Thank you for entering the competition to win a copy of Maya and the Crystal Skull. More importantly, thank you for helping me to choose the cover for the second book in the series Maya and the Daring Heist. I appreciate your assistance. Thank you so much!

The winner will be announced on this blog between 4 and 6 August 2012. Stay tuned!
