Photo Rehab Weekly Photo Challenge: Wrap up #13 New Challenge #14

Cover Makeover is the new themed feature of the Photo Rehab, created by me and Desley from Musings of a Frequent Flying Scientist.

Every week we give a new prompt, and participants go wild, using all their creativity, and producing fabulous covers far better than the original ones used by publishers.

Welcome to last week’s Wrap up and to the new challenge.

This was last week’s theme:

And here are the gorgeous covers made by the participants. We’ve included the links to their blogs, so that you can visit them to learn how they made their covers. Go and visit!

Thank you all for taking part and bringing so much creativity and originality to this challenge! We love what you do!

Disperser has blended photos of Pompei in Italy, the Haleakala’s caldera in Hawaii and the Silversword plant, made his post processing magic and et voilà, he came up with two original covers!

Jennifer Nichole Wells used an image and edited it to have a silver/gold look reflected in the book title.The books author, Becky said that: “I love it! The girl on your cover reminds me a lot of the main character. You’re a truly gifted cover-designer 😀 thanks for taking the challenge and making such a great piece of art out of my book.”


Julie from Julie Powell: Photographer & Graphic Artist, took two Low Key images from a recent outing and blended them together in PS, then added a funky retro gradient filter and some text. Becky, the book’s author, shared what she thought about this cover: “Thank you for being part of that challenge and creating such a beautiful cover for my novel. It felt just as if you had read it. Amazing work!”

Picnic Dinner

Next is Sabina and Toby from Library of Cats, who used the Pickmonkey app to make this fabulous cover. And here is what Beckky said about her cover: “It’s beautiful!! In fact there’s an old house in the book and the scenery fits totally. Very well done, thank you!”


So, ready to go for the next challenge?

Here is how it works.

  • Every Thursday we will give you the name of a book, music or movie, etc. and share with you our take on a new cover.
  • You will prepare you own cover by using your archive photos or shooting a new one to go with the theme.
  • Prepare your post and publish it. Remember to Ping Back (hyperlink) to this post. You may also copy your link to the comments section of this post.
  • Use the tag #PhotoRehabCoverMakeover, so that we can find your post in the WP reader.
  • Add your photo to the link provided below. In this way, you expose your photo to the other participants and the audience of the Photo Rehab.
  • If you wish, you can add to your post the badge we made for the challenge (below).
  • We will make a weekly wrap up of all the ingenious cover makeovers photos!

Every Thursday at 12:15 am CET you will find here the combined post. Immediately after that, every Thursday at 12:30 am CET, you will see the post with our version of the cover, which either Desley or I will create.

Isn’t this a cool challenge?!

This week we go for the novel: The Incident at Montebello, from P.A.Moed.


For those who don’t know, Patti is a fellow blogger at Pilotfish and an award-winning creative artist who has worked as a university professor, writer, textbook editor, photographer, corporate trainer, educational consultant, and instructional designer. Her novel, The Incident at Montebello, has garnered praise by the Kirkus Review and readers around the globe.

The Incident at Montebello is a historical novel based on a true event— In 1930, Italian Premier Benito Mussolini was driving through the Italian countryside with Cornelius Vanderbilt, Jr. when his car struck and killed a little girl, Sofia Buonomano. The Buonomano family is torn apart by Sofia’s death and is caught in a political firestorm that spreads from their village to Rome and across America and Europe. One family member, 16-year-old Isolina, witnesses the accident and recognizes Mussolini as the driver.

I’m currently reading the book…so do the same to know the rest of the story! 😉

And here is our version.


Now that you have your theme, what are you waiting for? Go for it.

Happy Cover Makeover-ing 🙂

  1. Hi Lucile. I love this! I’m delighted that you’re reading my book now and that you used the cover as a cover makeover challenge. Great idea and great cover too! I’d like to jump into the challenge too. It will be a lot of fun. I’m currently reading a classic book which doesn’t have a cover. It’s now in the public domain. It would be interesting to create a book cover from scratch too. Many thanks again for highlighting my book. 🙂


    1. Hi Patti. It’s a pleasure to hear that you loved it.
      I’m reading your book eagerly and loving it. So I thought, that’s my choice for this week.
      It’s a great idea to do next challenge as you suggest. Brilliant idea. And great to hear you’ll join the fun.
      So…would you like to make next post as a guest? Think about it!
      And thanks for the lovely comment and visit.


    1. That’s ok! I post the wrap up every Thursday at 00:15 am CET so if you don’t want to miss it, you can post till Wednesday. What’s your country and time zone?
      I’ll add your cover as well!


      1. Oh, thanks, Lucile. Sorry to be such a bother. You’re very kind. I see now that I was 24 hours out! I’m British but I’m living in Crete so we’re two hours ahead of GMT. I’ve got a lot going on at the moment which is probably why I wasn’t thinking straight. I’m already working on the cover for Patti’s book so I don’t miss out next week!


  2. These are such great covers. I really love all of them!
    And your cover for Patti’s book is soooo good. It reminds me of a Hercule Poirot movie. Beautiful. You are mastering the layering effects – I need to learn from you!!!
    Thank you again so much for taking care of this challenge while my life is upside down 😘


    1. They are true artists, my dear!
      Glad you found time to appreciate their work. No need to thank me. Hope you are coping well and solving all that you need.
      But you’re too kind with my attempt. It’s not something one can ever use. I’m not good at this business of book covers at all.

  3. I’m always very impressed with the makeovers that appear here. I’m sorry I haven’t been able to participate much lately but once all this wedding madness is over, I’ll try again. Nonetheless I love reading the wrap up posts and visiting the other blogs (when I have the time). Well done to you all 🙂


What do you think? I'd love to hear it all.
