Create Your Own Cover!


Thanks to Alexia over at Alexia's_Books_and_Such I got to do this fun exercise, creating a book cover. There are a few cool covers floating around... Very fun! Give it a try, here's how:

CREATE YOUR DEBUT YA COVER
1. Go to “Fake Name Generator” or click http://www.fakenamegenerator.com/
The name that appears is your author name.
2. Go to “Random Word Generator” or click http://www.websitestyle.com/parser/randomword.shtml
The word listed under “Random Verb” is your title.
3. Go to “FlickrCC” or click http://flickrcc.bluemountains.net/index.php
Type your title into the search box. The first photo that contains a person is your cover.
4. Use Photoshop, Picnik, or similar to put it all together.
Be sure to crop and/or zoom in.
5. Post it to your site along with this text.

  2. These are really neat. Wonder if we could keep the same author name and just do the book name and cover.

  5. Great job! I love the extreme close-up of the face and how you put the title right in the center. And I love your author name!

Sorry, got 106 spam comments in less than 24hrs. Had to turn on again.

I love comments! Please share your thoughts. I will respond here in the comments back to you.

I'll try again without word verification, but if Spammers get out of hand again I'll turn it back on.
