The Great (?) NaNo Cover Reveal

So last week I posted The Great NaNo To-Do List, which summed up all the things I hope to do as part of my NaNo prep. It ranged from the basics, like coming up with a title (something I always find hard) and writing a blurb (something 1000 times harder still), to making music playlists and media I’m going to consume to help get me in the mood.

I joke about it being one of the “important things” when it comes to writing, but making a cover is rather helpful for me. I get to look at pictures that might influence or inspire characters or tone, and it gets me thinking about the visual aspect of the story – something that I always struggle with.

So here’s my cover, in pretty mockup form1 because I like the way it makes it look.


What do you think? And if you are doing NaNo and want to be my friend, my username is Amynta. ūüėÄ In the meantime, I am going to be trying to write a decent blurb. Trying.
