Create your own novel cover

Here's a fun little activity that I got from Holly and Dean's blogs!



Hmm....and what is this load? Is it the load we all carry on our shoulders? Or for this young man, is it the load of fridges that he must carry to support his family? Intruiging....

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.

Nice job! I like the blurry background in your image that makes the scooter/fridge dude stand out.
