Here Are The Winners For The #NaNoProMo Final Week!

We made it through the entire month of #NaNoProMo — can you believe it? I’m pleased to announce the final #NaNoProMo winners today.

What a month it has been, too. Want to know how this all started? She doesn’t really want credit yet I want her to have it because she’s so brilliant.

The fabulous brain of Charlie Mills — branding expert featured this week and giving away customized branding guides as well—dropped this kernel of an idea in DM (direct message) last year.


“What about a month devoted to book marketing, Rach?”

We bandied about some ideas for the name and eventually came up with #NaNoProMo.

I bought the domain (where I plan to house it all next year), opened up social media channels for it (Twitter, FB Page, G+), started posting helpful content, and that was that for the time being.

I realized I could pull it off with A LOT of help. Then I started realizing — this is going to take a ton of coordination, connections, and carefully worded pleading :). Which, fine, whatever — I’m good at all that. It’s the time and effort it would take on top of everything I’m already doing to make it all come to fruition.

Which it did, and for that, I’m super grateful to all involved, and pleased. And tired.
