Create Your Debut YA Cover

I wanted to fade the top edge of the black bar at the bottom of mine, but forgot until after I'd saved it as one image and since I didn't save a project version, I am NOT making it all over again! So this is how it is.

What will yours look like?


1 – Go to "Fake Name Generator" or click

The name that appears is your author name.

2 – Go to "Random Word Generator" or click

The word listed under "Random Verb" is your title.

3 – Go to "FlickrCC" or click

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.

Let 100 Scope Notes know that you made one by commenting here, and it'll be added to the gallery!


  1. This is extremely fun. I'll try it someday soon.

  2. Awesome! I want one, but I'd never have the patience to do your text effects and so on.

  3. My title would be Acquiesce. What an odd book that would be!

  4. I made one and it was super fun. I named it Sense.

  5. Wow! Your book cover came out great! Mine was called Dash and I think I did a pretty good job. Cool activity!

  6. Yours is the best one I've see so far!
