An oil pastel drawing from a fan who loved my first books. To him I am grateful.
When designing a book cover I have learnt that you can create your own cover quite easily by searching for free stock images available for commercial use.
Using a simple word document you can then manipulate the images to be exactly as you want them to be by formatting each picture.
Have fun and play about with them.
Before the days of kindle my book covers cost me 1,000 pounds each. Now it costs nothing.
The above picture is not the front cover for my latest book but it was created on word and combines several different images.
