How to Create an Interior for Your Kindle Direct Publishing Book Using Canva

In order to make your Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) book look professional, you need to create a well-designed interior. After all, potential readers will judge your book by its cover AND by its interior design. If you’re not a professional designer, don’t worry! With Canva, you can easily create a beautiful interior for your KDP book. Here’s how:

1. Choose a template. Canva offers dozens of professionally-designed templates that you can use for free. Simply browse through the template library and choose the one that best fits your book’s subject matter.

2. Update the text. Once you’ve chosen a template, it’s time to update the text. Enter your book’s title, author name, and other relevant details into the provided fields. You can also add or delete text boxes as needed.

3. Change the colors and fonts. If you want to give your interior design a personal touch, consider changing the colors and fonts. Canva makes it easy to do so with their built-in color palette and font library. Simply click on the element that you want to change and select your preferred color or font from the drop-down menus.

4. Add images and graphics. Images and graphics can help break up large blocks of text and make your interior design more visually appealing. Canva offers millions of high-quality stock photos and graphics that you can use for free. Just search for what you need using the provided search bar – no need to worry about copyright infringement! – and drag-and-drop the image into your design.

5. Download or print your design. Once you’re happy with your design, it’s time to download or print it out! Canva offers both high-resolution PDFs and JPGs, so you can choose the file type that best suits your needs. And if you ever need to make changes to your design, simply log back into Canva and make them – no need to start from scratch!
