NaNoWriMo Book Covers

National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is an annual writing challenge where anyone who wants to participate can attempt to write a novel from start to finish in the month of November. I've participated as a writer in the past and have a lot of love for the event and community. This year I wanted to take on a different fun challenge. I offered to design book covers for participants and ended up getting a lucky thirteen requests. Because I was trying to get as many covers done in November as possible (it still took me a bit longer than I hoped), I did not do any rounds of revision. I asked each writer for the feel of their novel and a description of it and used that to design their cover. I am very grateful to the amazing writers who trusted me with their novels and allowed me to do this project!

Max did not yet have a blurb for the back cover and asked for a front cover only. The rest of the covers have both front and back covers.

César had an existing title/logo and color scheme that I used for this cover.
