Our Judges

The JABBIC partners with booksellers around the world who provide their keen sense for eye-catching art, their business savvy, and their expertise in spotting covers that can boost an author’s sales. Every year, the booksellers graciously volunteer their time to vote and select the JABBIC Grand Prize Winner for each category as well as the Second and Third Place finishers.

Many of the booksellers “hand sell” books — making direct recommendations to their customers — thus broadening an author’s audience and exposure. So when you enter the JABBIC, you get your cover in front of a dynamic group of enthusiastic romance book experts.

HBA is thrilled to have such knowledgeable, generous, and passionate booksellers partnering with us. Thank you!
