Create Your Debut Fantasy Novel Cover
Yesterday I did the “Create Your Debut Album” meme on Facebook. It produced a strangely believable album cover. I thought I’d modify things for the children’s book loving crowd. Above is my debut fantasy novel (yes, they are doing the parachute toss with a blue whale) – what will yours look like? Here goes:
CREATE YOUR DEBUT FANTASY BOOK COVER
1 – Go to “Behind the Name”. Hit “Generate a Name!” or click http://www.behindthename.com/random/
The first name you get is your author name.
2 – Go to “Fantasy Novel Title Generator”
or click http://nine.frenchboys.net/novel.php
This is the title of your book.
3 – Go to Photobucket and click on “surreal art” or click http://photobucket.com/images/surreal%20art/
Add the two numbers of your age together (ex. 2 + 7 = 9). Go to that page of results. The fourth picture, no matter what it is, is your cover.
4 – Use photoshop, Picnik, or similar to put it all together.
5 – Post it to your site along with this text.
*UPDATE* If you create a cover, let me know – I’m going to post a gallery
