With NaNoWrimo just one day away, I thought it would be fun to challenge myself to make 10 covers in less than ten hours. I ended up making 15. Each was low quality - only 230x300 - and the only interaction I had had with the author was through one post about their blurb, title, genre, and pen-name. Each cover was made in less than half an hour, just as a challenge to myself.

Day 2!

10 Hours, 10 Covers Challenge

I had less than 10 hours to design covers. I asked on facebook: i did not have a chance to see the plots before my time started. I ended up doing 15 instead of the planned 10.
