I subscribe to a number of publishing and agent blogs. Today, one of them, had this brilliant (and entertaining) idea:
HOW TO CREATE YOUR DEBUT YA COVER
- Go to Fake Name Generator. The name that appears is your author name.
- Go to Random Word Generator. The word listed under “Random Verb” is your title.
- Go to FlickrCC. Type your title into the search box. The first photo that contains a person is your cover.
- Use Photoshop, Picnik, or similar to put it all together. Be sure to crop and/or zoom in, as desired.
Technically, Batman isn’t a person, so I made another one, but it’s not nearly as amusing.
But I’m still keeping the Batman one up (and first) because it makes me giggle. 🙂
