My graphic design skills give me a huge advantage for book marketing. It’s almost unfair. That’s why for years I’ve wanted some free online tools you can use to catch up. I don’t think Photoshop prowess should be a publishing requirement. You can always get cheap work done on Fiverr, but wouldn’t it be cool if you could just make your own promotional material?
I think so.
Today I had kind of a breakthrough when I realized how I can use my free tool at www.diybookcovers.com to make some amazing templates you can edit, add your book cover, and use to supercharge your 99cent or free campaigns.
You can open the templates at the tool, here:
Also made some videos showing how to use the templates. First, the painfully boring hour long video (I’m just starting out, obviously I should have made 10 videos in that hour!).
But you should really just watch the quick little 5 minute video I made later.
But I warn you, it’s pretty bad too – lots of rambling and pauses. But starting to make video was a huge stumbling block for me last year and I’m proud to have begun… and I’ll get better, I promise!

I’ve started making these in Google Slides, it’s easier to use than my free tool.
I just added a package of 50 to my Epic Cover Design Package.
You can also play with these free version – not as clean and professional, but still fun!
