Create Your Debut YA Cover

I heard about this via Finding Wonderland this afternoon and, because I'm practically looking for excuses to design fake book covers (I could do that all day long, no joke), I (semi) followed the instructions and ended up with the below. This is originally the concept of 100 Scope Notes and if you'd like to create your own YA debut cover simply follow these instructions:


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.

* 5 – Post it to your site along with this text.

Conspire by Aidan L. Kent

As you can see, I bent the rules a little as by the time I'd realized I was supposed to have a person in the photo I was too far into the design to turn back. Anyway, the kitties look pretty creepy to me. Not sure if they're part of a conspiracy or just window dressing but I admit I'm curious. This looks like one eerie book!
