Found an Author Tech Helper. It’s called @Canva… #InnocentVengeance #FreeRead

For Tech Thursday, I wanted to commend on being a great helper in upping my graphic game.

For my new novel Innocent Vengeance, I’ve dived deep in the Canva Vault to find unique designs because I didn’t want my ads to start looking like all the others. I know everyone is jumping on the Canva bandwagon so a lot of times when I’m scrolling down my Facebook feed I see Canva here and Canva there.

I don’t knock other others for just being happy with the regular template. But I wanted more.

Check out my profile on 

I found if I took elements from their paid ones and used them in my own ads I was able to make unique designs that would stand out, create feelings for the work (my books) and look really nice (like a professional touched these)

Ta dah!

You talk about some really great ads popping out I could put on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter that would definitely stand out.

Here’s the first one:

This one was simple and sweet. I could stick with the color scheme of the book and pull this one off.

It was great, but I wanted one that would definitely generate an emotion, so I went with this one.

It’s just something magical and mysterious when you add black and white to the cover.

Words especially mean a lot and I took the design to the next level by also pushing on alterations to draw attention to the words but easing the viewer into a great design:

Note to authors: Keeping the original pic of the book cover so you can play with the image was real important to me and should be to you.

With that I can take whatever element from the book cover and do whatever I want without the words on the book cover getting in my way.

A lot of these ads wouldn’t have worked if I had just used the book cover, but with just using the picture I was not confined in the design.

BTW, I originally got the cover from and I think she did a pretty good job! Thank you.

Tell me which ad do you like the best?
