Amazon new Cover generator for indie authors

Amazon have released a Bete version of a new feature to its KDP publishing system - the new feature is a cover designer that will allow users to create passable cover art based on an image they provide. You will be able to choose from a gallery list of templates and customize it to your specific tastes. After you’ve selected your image, you can choose from one of ten base designs, which can then be further customized with various layouts as well as font and color schemes. In case you can’t find an image you’re satisfied with,  Amazon has included some basic designs that don’t incorporate an image from your computer or the stock image gallery.

At the moment the Beta is only available to US users.

Maybe one day Amazon will even write the book for you using a complex series of plot generators and then all the author will have to do is put their name to it.

You mean that's not how it's done now? (Heh...Remember that episode of The Avengers where the mysterious romance novelist turns out to be a computer built into a piano?)
