Ladies and Gentlemen, my debut YA cover ...


Ok, so it's not actually my YA book cover. But this picture would totally look like something that would be on the front of my first novel.

This is a fun game I got from Amanda at The Zen Leaf and I couldn't resist doing it. What you do is you:

1) Go to Fake Name Generator. Whatever name comes up is your new author name.
2) Go to Random Word Generator. What random verb comes up is the title of your book.
3) Go to FlickrCC. Type your title into the search box. The first picture that contains a person is your cover.
4) Put them together and put it on your blog :-D

I don't have Photoshop so I had to use Paint. My font was black at first but it wasn't very clear so I changed it to white. What do you think? I like it :-D

Fun, but the "cover" is kinda creepy.

Melody said...

That's a great cover, but I've to admit it looks a little creepy. :P

This is so good it kind of freaks me out. I'd say it's a paranormal coming of age novel...?

Amanda - Thank you, it does. And thanks for mentioning me on your post too :-D

Nan - Totally. I'm proud of it.

Kath - Do it!

Kerri - I *love* yours!

Carol - hehe, Yeah, I love creepy.

Mel - Creepy's so me. It would definitely suit my writing.

Tanita - Yeah, it looks like that. I love freaky looking pictures/covers and as much as I try to avoid judging a book by its cover, I'd totally pick it up if this was real.
