Awesome Cover Designs From the #30C30D Initative

November is more than halfway over – Christmas music has invaded the radio stations, and the temperature is sharply dropping – in some places it has already snowed. But as the days of November are winding down, National Novel Writing Month is ramping up. The days are dwindling and for those participating and with just 12 more days to hit 50,000 words, the pressure is on.

As the days fly by more covers join the NaNoWriMo blog roll, crafted by some of the best graphic designers in the world. This past week Austin Beckstrom, Maria Popova, José Nieto, Seth Johnson, Tony Pinto, Christine Mau, and Von Glitschka have all joined the 30 Covers, 30 Days initiative with some spectacular covers, with equally impressive novels-in-progress behind them.
