Elizabeth’s Demerit: Elizabeth is so wiped out, she’s not giving herself a demerit. She’s doing her best! I quite agree: gold star for no demerit.
Gretchen’s Gold Star: I give a gold star to the brilliant and inexhaustibly creative Danielle Deschenes, who persevered to create dozens of interesting designs for the cover of Outer Order, Inner Calm that were terrific but not quite right—and then, as time grew short, came up with a gorgeous design that’s so striking, and so perfectly suited to the book, that it’s now one of my very favorite covers ever.
