You're welcome.
 I'll see if I can find other book cover software downloads,
 if that's not what you're looking for.

Good luck with your writing.      jt

Canva is pretty good. Easy to design your own - and they actually look pretty good. Prices range from free on up.

You could also try fiverr.com if you're unsure about making your own They have graphic designers there that specialize in making book covers, starting at $5/cover.

I just had one made there and it came out beautifully. The artists offer unlimited revisions, a money back guarantee, and different packages depending on if you only need an ebook cover or an actual book cover as well.

Fiverr is a mixed bag at best, imho. I've had a couple of good things, but I've had more bad than good.

Personal opinion.  ;)

Here's another:

Adobe Spark is a free book cover maker that lets you craft a vision from your writing. With it, you can find a book cover template that suits your genre and style, and you can customize it until you have a sleek e-book cover that's perfect for your verbal art. It's a fun, simple and free way to jazz up your book, and it gives you more time to focus on publishing and promotion.

You welcome. If I find other sites I think you and/or other writers can use, I'll post the links.  It costs me nothing to research.

Since we are graphical designers ourselves for an E-Report about Digital Photography we wrote, we simply used some of our design software and simply used our own Logo, and the Colorful Lettering from our tag-line with saying (in our case) Presented by Edelhert Design Studio.
