Want to make an inspirational quote to share, perhaps make an e-card, or wallpaper but don’t know how? It’s easier than you think. QuotesCover.com transforms text into cool graphic art. You can choose quotes from their library, or use your own. Then play around with their graphics for your personal design. You can even add your own backgrounds. It’s really a lot of fun. Below are the ones I did. I used a John Wayne quote that I keep near my desk, my author tagline, and a quote from the hero of my latest book, Mutiny of the Heart.
Go. Have fun.
