In October 2008, Jake Kilroy discovered that he had Photoshop on his computer at work. He started messing around, as he always does any time he gets his hands on Photoshop. He thought it'd be funny to make a fake book cover. He called it "Tell Me About It, Canada."
Then he couldn't stop.
By the time work was over, he had made 10. The next day, he made 9. His co-worker and current publicist noticed Jake having difficulty quitting.
Jake, realizing he had an addiction, knew he had to do something and was considering art rehab. Instead, he won Cheryl over by making a book for her. His friends at work wanted their own. Eyvette was there too.
Soon, his co-worker and current agent/guide, Kim Orr, suggested that there may be a larger market of interest.
So, taking Kim Orr's advice, Jake Kilroy started up Fake Book Covers as a blog to keep his hobby like a company so he wouldn't ever have to treat it or deal with it as a problem.
Kim then suggested that Jake give the books depth and provide passages. Jake agreed, since he wasn't really good at Photoshop but could write decently.
So Jake started writing excerpts, book sleeves, back covers, prefaces and taglines for his books, guessing what would be in certain books.
Jake did and then turned Fake Book Covers into a legit website. So...enjoy.
