Having Some Fun with Book Covers

pinpointThere’s been lots of serious talk about book covers recently, so let’s have a little fun today, shall we? I’m totally stealing my idea for this post from the Alien Onions, who blogged:


1 – Go to Fake Name Generator. The name that appears is your author name.

2 – Go to Random Word Generator. The word listed under “Random Verb” is your title.

3 – Go to FlickrCC. Type your title into the search box. The first photo that contains a person is your cover.

4 – Use Photoshop, Picnik, or similar (I use Snagit Editor) to put it all together. Be sure to crop and/or zoom in, as desired.

5 – Post it to your site along with this text.

Mine’s above. What’s yours? Link to it in the comments. And just to make it interesting, Intern Jenny will pick her favorite cover to win a copy of Alyson Noel‘s #1 New York Times bestseller Blue Moon.

Let your inner artist shine forth!
