And the bell tolls on another great November! 30 Covers, 30 Days was a whopping success: thirty lucky people, out of nearly 5,500, were chosen to have unique covers designed for their synopses. Every morning featured a new and enticing piece of bookish art—from science fiction, to humor, to memoir; each day promised an exciting visual quirk, and offered an inspiration to keep writing.
So, thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who worked so hard to put this project together. Thank you to the gifted and talented designers who feasted on 24 hours of spontaneous creativity and put together thirty of the most beautiful covers I have ever seen.
Thank you to Debbie Millman, for facilitating this project, and for being so fun to work with.
Thank you to everyone who has followed the project throughout the month, talked about the covers in the forums, and liked the posts on our blog.
And, finally, thank you to all of the amazing, imaginative, and daring people who took the time and had the courage to nominate their synopses. If it wasn’t for you, there would be no 30 Covers, 30 Days.
