My Debut YA Novel Cover

Well this was fun and worth trying out!

I found the rules at
100 Scope Notes via One Librarian's Book Reviews. And while they both wound up with super images, I got a fuzzy, low res pic of some random chick with a big old bottle of booze and an 'Australia' t-shirt. Awesome. So, as you can see, I had to crop the heck out of it and I have ended up with a tiny, little bitty YA book cover. :-D But, it is fun and you should definitely try it! There are some options other than the YA version, but this is where I started!

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
