You just spent a good chunk of your life writing the book that you always knew you had in you, and now it's time to publish it! But you're an author, not a graphic designer, and you need an eye-catching book cover that will make readers say yes to buying your book.
Some book distributors have tools to help you out, but they rely on templates that are less than de-sirable and scream, "This book has been self-published!"
You can also find a professional to do it for you, but if you're on a budget this isn't necessarily ideal.
There's a third way: Canva!
Canva is a cloud-based (that means nothing to install!) design tool that lets non-designers make co-vers that will help tell their book's story. It's powerful and easy for authors (even those with limited com-puter skills) to learn. It's also the tool used to design the book cover for this book!
