I don't think that's necessary, really. Given that we have a 2-week proposed deadline to get the covers in, 3 claims doesn't mean we're getting the covers faster.

But it is the weekend, so maybe our cover producers have a bit more time than usual. I just might. :D
Cheers, Ava.

And if makers claim 2 covers and submit one of them, they can go back and claim another. So I don't think the project limit is really a limitation. :)

Sometimes I like to sit on a cover for a day or so because I'm not happy with it especially if it's one I wasn't keen on making on no one else was either.

Okay, I claimed 2 of them, but I doubt I can get the covers by midnight tonight! Is this a race against the clock?

Hey Happy new year for allá of you. I'd like to preclaim the cover for "Orgullo y prejuicio vol 2" which i've finished to record but there aré 3 chapters without PL yet. I don't know if this Is the correct way to so ir. But i already done the cover, that's why I'm interested in claiming it.

I've entered the preclaim for you. This request is made in the CD Covers Working Thread, but that's okay. ;)

It isn't grouped yet but I think it should be. Thanks for the heads up. Happy New Year.

Barring any other admin objections, I've made MLAW collections into a group. That doesn't really have much to do with calling something a series for the sake of cover claims, though. :) I have no objections to Michele being the pre-claimant for that series. Go for it.

Do you want me to put you in for the next volume?

Just let me explain - there is no magic way to make claims for "cover series" - it isn't built into the claim software or anything like that, it depends on someone making a claim for you - and that someone is at the moment me. And "mistakes" will happen which will lead to ill will around the covers - I am not prepared to be blamed for them

I don't want to deprive anyone else of making covers for this group if they want them, but I'm happy to do them for awhile. Whatever works best for everyone.

Thank you very much to Anne for the cover of Twenty by Stella Benson. I can't believe you designed something that looks so nice so swiftly!
