Everybody else seems perfectly able to use Canva for promotional material, but I didn’t even know where to start. And when another one ended up on my newsfeed in Facebook, I just had to have a go.

I found a step-by-step idiot guide and took it from there. And here are two I made earlier …

Diary of a Scaredy Cat: a year in the life of a frightened writer

Night Crawler: a Marcie Craig Mystery
