How To Design a Kickass eBook Cover for Free

I use Google Drawings to create all of my Kindle eBook covers.

Yes, just Google Drawings.

I set the drawing dimensions to 1600 x 2560 as per Amazon’s guidelines. Follow these dimensions to ensure you do not have a blurry cover.

Typically I’ll choose a solid color background, but you can do images, shapes, anything that comes to mind. I like a simple approach to maximize interest among the noise that most covers have.

When you’re done adding your book title, author name, and any other text, you can export as a JPEG, which is what Amazon needs for cover uploading.

There you have it, a brilliant book cover made easy.
