Every November, during National Novel Writing Month, thirty professional designers volunteer to create book cover art inspired by novels being written by aspiring authors from around the globe. Why? To encourage new, diverse voices, and help build a more creative world.
30 Covers, 30 Days is presented in partnership with designer and author Debbie Millman. Read more about these NaNoWriMo 2018 novels-in-progress, and the cover designers, below.
A Thriller novel being written this November by NaNo participant Andrew Wolczyk in the United Kingdom.
Abigail Palmer, newly widowed and desperate to escape her grief, takes a holiday. Booking herself into a luxury apartment she cuts herself off from the outside world. This turns out to be a mistake when she finds herself trapped in a cupboard.
Her son, Joel, unable to contact her, suspects there is a problem and starts a mad rush to find out where she is holidaying. Will he be in time to save his mother before she dies of starvation and lack of water? Not to mention her air is running out.
Cover designer Joshua Ege shared this mockup of what Trapped would look like as a physical book:
Stay tuned for new covers every day of the month!
