Bad Book Covers

I’ve just spent the last few hours attempting to work out Pixlr so I can make shitty sub-standard cover images that make my lack of designer skills very apparent 😦 I’m thinking I’m going to have to go to InDesign to get my needs met.

This has prompted me to google book cover images and I’ve come across a site called Lousy Book Covers. And OMFG, they are terrible. I swear to God I hope I never make anything that bad. And you knows what’s worse? They are probably going to get more attention for their books than I am *starts crying*.

Not only that, but there is a link to an article about a person knowing some of the authors featured and they don’t care. Cause you know any publicity is good publicity.

  1. Ah, Lousy Book Covers. Love that site, myself; I go on it pretty much every day.

    Have you considered shopping around for a cover designer? Might be a good idea if you’re new to making them, and I gather it doesn’t have to be particularly expensive either.

    • I have, but I’m at the same time I’m a bit apprehensive about it. I’m very tight with my money and since I’ve never done this whole thing before. I’m also ironically worried that I won’t be able to communicate what I want.
