I’m guilty of it. When I go looking for a new book to read, I always take into account the cover. If it has too much going on, I immediately put it back. No back cover read, no first page, nothing. I just put it down and move on.
I do the same thing on Wattpad. I usually pass by the covers that don’t draw me in. I like simple covers. I don’t want a lot of graphics going on, and I’m pretty weird about people being on the cover. I’ve just never liked it.
With that being said, I wanted to tell you about a website called Canva. It’s what I used to make my cover for Broken Crown. I actually bought the imageand then used Canva to add the title and my name. Now, that’s easy enough to do in word or paint, but I liked that I could use one of their premade templates to get the title right where I needed it.
I haven’t had any complaints on it, but I also haven’t had any comments. But I am happy with it. Canva is free to use, all you have to do is sign up!
As always, happy writing!
