Create Your Own YA Cover

(Via the Onions)
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.
Too easy!

Not sure how I feel about being Floretta Rollins though.

And while we're at it, here's one I knocked up for Dear Swoosie:

  1. Mine was called Loiter too! Except it had a kid in a tiger outfit hiding behind a pole on the cover, and was written under my pseudonym, Marilyn Boyd.

    I posted mine Here: http://heyteenager.blogspot.com/2009/07/create-your-debut-ya-cover.html

  2. Oh, I WISH I'd got the tiger suit. No fair!

  3. Loiter - cool!
    Dear Swoosie - Cheeky! (*makes note for designer*)
