Under Cover

Kate Schafer Testerman posted this little activity over on KT Literary. You can read the full rules on her site, but in a nutshell: the task was to design a book cover using a randomly generated author name, book title, and cover image.

So I decided to play along (It’s the least I can do after I made her the unwitting star in a Broadway-style musical.)

It should be quite obvious that my random name was “Tricia Forbes” and my random title was the verb “Fold”:

I think it turned out quite well. =)

    Great book cover. It goes nicely with the title. I love your blog here in general and query tracker is indispensable to my life. Just wanted to stop by and say that and also say thanks for being a follower!

    How long did it take you to do that?

    • Um… not long at all, since the cover art was randomly chosen as well. All I did was stick the random art, name, and title together and play with fonts and layouts. 😉

      It was quite a fun little meme, really… feel free to join in!
