Debut Author Challenge Cover Wars - April 2013 Winner (Finally)

As you know, Blogger polls apparently do not work. They don't record all votes, they delete counted votes, etc. In an attempt to find find something more reliable, I turned to both a Rafflecopter poll and a poll I created using Google Drive.  I find both okay and both inadequate. Neither poll shows real time voting results. On top of that you have to log in to the Rafflecopter to vote.  As far as I know presently it is not possible for polls with Rafflecopter or Google Drive to show real time voting results. I have to explore Google Drive more and see if it's possible to include real time voting results. In the meantime I will continue to search for a better poll. I've considered PollDaddy but it only allows 200 votes per poll. These Debut Author Challenge Polls sometimes go well over that number. PollCode may be a good alternative.

Now to the winner of the Debut Author Challenge Cover Wars for April 2013:  The Lives of Tao by Wesley Chu and cover art by Argh! Oxford.
