Mock Covers

First of all, saw Hunger Games last night. LOVED IT. Even though there are certain moments playing again over and over in my mind that are probably going to give me nightmares for a week.


So sometimes I get into a writing slump, but all I can think about is my novel. I know that doesn't really make sense, but I'll be thinking and thinking about it and not able to force myself to type out the words.

When that happens, I usually make mock covers.

I can't tell you how many mock covers I've made for my books--probably at least three each. I have so much fun doing it, and it's interesting to see just how different it turns out than the last one I made.

I particularly liked the one I made today, so I thought I'd share it with you, just for fun :D

May the odds be ever in your favor! 



  1. Stunning! Your mock covers are way better than the ones I do in Paint. :) New title?

    1. Yeah, this isn't OPEN EYES, though. OPEN EYES and SECONDHAND HEART are prequels to this. It used to be called CLOSED MIND, back when I thought I would be trying to sell a five book series. I've realized that it would flow better and sell better if I did the last three as a trilogy and then released Kenna's story. So this is the first of those three :)

    2. This is the one with the prison scene with Tristan and Anaya, if you remember that at all.

  2. that's so cool. I also love to picture what the cover of my book may look like some day, but I'm not tech saavy enough to try and make a mock version.

  3. I've never tried doing mock covers before, but they seem like lots of fun to do! Cool beans!

  4. That's awesome! I don't have the skill to make mock covers, but I definitely like to sit around and imagine what I'd want my covers to look like. When I'm not writing, I also like to listen to music and play through my favorite scenes in my head.


Share your passion!
