This is an interesting cover design tool for anyone looking to DIY your own professional book cover.


It's still in BETA, but definitely worthy of a look-see:  http://about.canva.com/kindle-cover/

  • Publishing Experience:My work first appeared in Divine Dirt Quarterly and Oysters&Chocolate. Sadly, these are both out of print now. More recently, my short stories have appeared in two anthologies (The Spring and The Fall) from Elephant's Bookshelf Press. I have self published two novels and a short story collection.

Since establishing the company in 2012, we have published ten books, including short stories by several AQC writers and debut novels by AQC authors A.T. O'Connor (aka Cat Woods), "ScubaSteve" Carman, and R.S. Mellette. Heading into 2016, we're aiming to publish at least two books, including the second Mellette novel and an anthology. In 2015, I saw a few memoir/nonfiction pieces published in Red Fez. I expect to do more of that in 2016 and beyond, while also looking to add freelance editing and writing clients.

I hadn't realized this community was touting this tool back when it was in Beta. It has become a significant tool now. I hear about it in lots of design circles and webinars. I haven't played with it too much yet, but I'm definitely starting to do so.

I used it to make the covers for these two books: To Rule the Stars and The Short of It. It's definitely a great tool for those of us that are otherwise completely graphically inept.
