Create a Cover!
I found this incredibly fun activtity on Kristi’s (The Story Siren) website. Here is what you do:
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. I used MS Publisher because that was all I had on this computer. Not ideal, but it got the job done!
5 – Post it to your site along with this text.
My lovely cover:
Give it a try! It’s fun!!!
