j-flamingo reflections

Inspired by the grace and beauty of the flamingo, my life reflected by my love of reading, writing and creating.

Crinkle by Julia R. Sevingny

How do you like the cover of my new book? I think I did a great job with the title and author placement, don't you? Helps that I got a perfect picture for it. It's pretty exciting and too good to be true. Yes, it's fake!
It was a fun diversion posted on Amanda's blog and I followed her instructions to a "T" and this is what came out of it. Pretty cool! I thought it was funny how my fake name turned out to be so similar to my real name.
Although, if it were real I had been thinking of how this cover could be a YA fiction book. I think Crinkle would have to be a mystery, perhaps even time travel linked in there some way, of course. So, here's how the back cover might read:

Obsession couldn't be a strong enough word for the way Robby felt right now. He loved old things, so what? His collection of 1930's hats, newspapers, old music made him happy and he often searched online for more information about what life was really like back then. Hadn't he been born in the wrong time period? And then enters Alice. He discovered the old news article online about her mysterious death all those years ago. He couldn't read enough about it. Couldn't he solve her mystery? Oh, how he wished he could. Then one dreary, rainy night he receives a strange phone call, about Alice, and finds himself transported to the night that Alice was killed. Does he know enough about what happened that night to save her now? Will saving Alice alter the course of time and change his life forever?

I realize I need some work on writing back cover's but it was fun anyway. :)

Nice job! I don't see half the covers coming out as YA titles. Mine wasn't, Jason's wasn't, Kay's or Kerri's weren't (they were my favorites, did you see their links? They got wonderful pictures!). I'm going to link to you. :)

Thanks, Amanda! I did see the other cover's and they were all very fun! They did have great pictures! Iffy YA titles like you said but a great idea generator anyway. Thanks for linking to me!

She is pure Alice in Wonderland, and her appearance and demeanor are a nicely judged mix of the Red Queen and a flamingo.
