Do Not Disturb

Really, if you want the whole story, you’d have to go all the way back. It started with Sarah Enni. Her and a single tweet. So, here’s how it all went down.








Fast forward a week and you have the Go Away Dust Jacket series. What you might not know about author Erin Bowman is that she likes to collect creative talents and not only can she write, but she’s also a graphic designer. She’s also the reason we’re revealing these book covers for you on our blogs today—because, in all honestly, you’d probably laugh at what Sarah and I could have come up with on our own.


I’ll put on my Captain Obvious cap and tell you that these come in pretty handy when you’re reading a good book and don’t want to be interrupted. It’s the bookish equivalent of the ol’ tie-around-the-doorknob trick.


We’ve split the covers among the three of us, so hop between our blogs to collect templates for each. Here on my site you can download PDFs for covers that read:

Shhh. I’m in book mode.

Silencio!

Fiction > Reality

Head to Erin’s site to get this set:


And visit Sarah’s site to get this book-specific set:


Creating the covers from the pdfs is insanely easy. Below you’ll find printing instructions and a video* Erin created as a helpful how-to. 

Download PDFs for set No. 2 from the Go Away Dust Jacket series:
Printing:
These covers will fit the traditionally-sized YA book. Take the PDFs to your local FedEx or Staples and get them printed on tabloid paper (11x17in). We suggest a matte cardstock  (you could print on something glossy, but sometimes that causes light glares at certain angles and you want people to be able to read that Go Away message without incident). Choose a weight between 60-80lb for the paper. Anything lighter and the page will be too thin, anything heavier and folding it around your book will be difficult. You can have the store cut the printer-outs for you (it will cost a little more), or you can handle it on your own when you get home (there are crop marks in the files).

Assembly:




Go forth and read.

*Yeah, we know it’s backwards. You can either pretend none of us knew how to flip the video or you can imagine Erin filming this with mirrors. I like option number two.
