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:

Mock Book Cover

 

Give it a try!  It’s fun!!!

  1. aww! how cute! isn’t this fun!

  2. Yes! I didn’t even have cool software like I do on my other computer and I still had fun.

    I liked the random name and word generator. Maybe I will rework it from my other computer later

  3. It’s so fun to see what people come up with.
