Judging by my writing students, sourcing Kindle ebook covers cause more angst that writing a book does. Yes, covers are important. However, you can create them yourself very easily. Perhaps you’ve heard of Canva, the graphics editor? It’s also the easiest ever Kindle ebook cover creator.
Canva does the hard work for you of ebook cover creation for you
In the image above, you can see one of the many images Canva provides for book covers. If you don’t like the image, just upload your own. It takes just minutes to develop your own ecover for your latest Kindle book.
A tip: if you’re writing a series of books, create several ecovers at the same time. Tie the series together with similar images, and use the same fonts. Add all the information which you’ll use for each ebook in the series. Later, when an ebook is ready to publish, just add the title.
As you may know, I have a busy ghostwriting practice. I create cover images in Canvas as a service for my clients. I don’t charge for them; clients are free to hire their own designer. However, it’s so easy to do, I do it so that if they wish, clients can publish to Kindle immediately, then change the cover later.
